There was plenty of talent in part one of Sundays top performers from the NY2LA Final Chapter and just as many here in part two. Here are a few more from the loaded tournament. 

Ahmad Henderson – 2023 – PG – Young & Reckless

Henderson is one of the more elusive players in Illinois’ 2023 class. He shined throughout the tournament including 16 points in a winning effort in the GSS bracket championship game. With his quickness and shifty moves, he has a great ability to create his own shot from the outside as well to getting into the defense and finishing at a high rate over the top pulling up outside the paint. The senior has good range on his jumper and shoots it so well off the dribble quickly rising up to get his shot off whenever he wants. 

Joey Hernandez – 2025 – PG – Greater Purpose Athletics 

Hernandez showed a very advanced game for a player with only one year of high school basketball to his name. The point guard was one of a few key pieces on this 15U GPA squad that made it all the way to the platinum title game. He shined in the championship game with his ability to run the point and distribute it as well as score it himself. Hernandez has good vision and moves well with the ball in his hands. He was often getting into the defense to finish around the paint and mid-range in addition to creating for his teammates. 

Isaiah Miranda – 2023 – C – Rhode Island Elite

One of the most unique and high upside players in the entire nation. Even at 7’1”, Miranda is very fluid with his athleticism and quickness plus elite length and motor. He has a great ability to shut down the paint but can just as easily defend wings or switch onto guards. Offensively he is a lob threat, finishes well around the basket with good touch, got out in transition running the floor hard, and can step out to hit some threes. With today’s brand of basketball, Miranda’s game will translate very effectively to the next level. Following the tournament, he picked up an offer from Oregon to add to his growing list. 

Kenneth Robertson – 2023 – G – Motor City Grizzlies 

While Robertson was a standout throughout the tournament, he excelled with his play in a showcase game on Sunday. He has the ability to impact the game in a variety of ways on both ends but is at his best as a playmaker with the ball in his hands attacking the defense with his handle and acceleration. The guard showed a good ability to get all the way to the bucket and finish, hit shots off the dribble, and be a facilitator while running the point effectively but can also be a floor spacer and knock down perimeter jumpers well. 

Brandon Roddy – 2025 – PG – All Ohio Select

Roddy way key throughout the tournament including Sunday to help All Ohio Select with the 15U platinum championship. He is a high IQ point guard that is a true playmaker. Not only a skilled scorer but he also created very well for his teammates. He excels playing off the dribble getting into the defense. Roddy has good moves attacking but can also play through contact to get all the way to the basket often. 

Jaheim Savage – 2023 – G – All In Athletics Gold

Savage shined with his play on both sides of the ball in his team’s double overtime thrilling win in a showcase matchup. A tough and agile defender who can get all over the ball without being beat. He is a guard with a strong build was contributing in a multitude of ways. Not only does he have good moves off the dribble but uses his strength effectively to play through contact and get all the way to the bucket. 

Danny Stephens – 2023 – SF – MidPro Academy

Stephens has only continued to improve his game and produce at a high level. He had some clutch performances in MidPro’s championship run, including a 20-point game in the semifinals. A versatile scorer who was getting it done in all ways; rolls and cuts, spot up threes, pull up jumpers. Not only was he contributing with his scoring, but Stephens was very in all facets for his team.
