Roster (Comments from Sean Johnson):

#0 Brady Mack, 6-2, Class of 2026, G/F, Lancaster
Saw action as a reserve for Lancaster as a junior ... Averaged 1.4 ppg for a team that finished 14-13 ... "Brady is an athletic guard/forward who is a great defender and rebounder. He has a high motor and excels when putting the ball on the deck and attacking the rim. He can finish with both hands, and will be a contributor to varsity next year where they will compete for a conference title."

#2 Bryce Crubaugh-Lockard, 5-10, Class of 2026, G, Dodgeville
Played a significant role at Dodgeville as a sophomore ... Averaged 8.2 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists ... Made 32 three-point shots for the Dodgers as well ... "Bryce will run the show for the 16U team this summer. He is a physical guard who can shoot it from range and put the ball on the floor and attack the rim while distributing the ball efficiently.  Bryce is a very good defender and has the quickness to stay in front of the quicker guards on the Prep Hoops Circuit."

#3 Owen Ayite Atayi, 6-1, Class of 2026, G, Verona
Played on the JV squad at Verona as a sophomore ... "This is the first year for Owen in the Wisconsin Hoops Select program. An off-the-charts athletic guard who plays at the rim when attacking the glass and rebounding the basketball for his size. He scores at all three levels and has quickly become one of the team leaders. Owen is a great motivator and communicator, and an under-the-radar player who is quickly getting exposure on the Prep Hoops Circuit."  


Carter Lancaster

#4 Taylor Williams, 6-3, Class of 2026, G, Lancaster
Second-team all-Southwest Wisconsin Conference selection in 2023-24 ... Averaged a team-best 12.9 points while also contributing 5.0 rpg and 2.3 apg ... Scored a career-best 22 points in a win over Benton ... Two-year varsity performer entering junior season ..."Taylor is a fantastic team leader who can take over a game as he can score on all three levels. He was named one of the top shooters at the Prep Hoops Circuit Cream City Collision in Milwaukee this spring. Taylor distributes the ball well with excellent court awareness. He has been our leading scorer in the first two Prep Hoops Circuit events."

#5 Zach Hermsen, 6-4, Class of 2026, G/F, Lancaster
Key contributor to a Lancaster squad that went 14-13 in 2023-24 ... Averaged 10.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists for the Arrows ... Dropped a career-high 30 points in a close loss to Highland ... "Zach is a long, athletic guard/forward who can shoot it from distance and is very effective cutting through the lane. He can fill it up quickly and has improved his ability to grab rebounds and push the ball up the floor with pace."  

#11 Eli Andres, 6-1, Class of 2026, G, Verona
Played on the JV team as a sophomore at Verona ... "Eli is one of the best defenders this program has seen in a long time. He will lead the summer circuit in charges taken without a doubt.  Eli is a hard-nosed, team-first player who can lock down the other team’s best player. Eli has improved tremendously on the offensive side of the ball, knocking down threes with consistency with the ability to take his defender off the dribble to knock down the mid-range shot while also attacking the glass."    

#14 Cal Odgers, 6-2, Class of 2026, G, Mount Horeb
Split time between the varsity and JV squads at Mount Horeb as a sophomore ... "Cal is solid defender who has improved on cleaning the glass on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor. Cal can hit the three and excels on attacking the rim."

#22 Will Tobin, 6-3, Class of 2026, F, Potosi
Saw limited time with the varsity team at Potosi as a sophomore ... "Will is a strong post player who can stretch the defense from the three-point line. Will does a very nice job rebounding the ball on both sides of the floor and can find the open shooter or take the ball back to the rim."      

#34 Treaton Loeffelholz, 6-4, Class of 2026, F/C, Iowa-Grant
Solid contributor in the post for Iowa-Grant as a sophomore ... Averaged 8.2 points and 5.9 rebounds to rank among team leaders in both categories ... "Treaton has improved significantly with his footwork in the post after missing last summer with an injury. He is a very good rebounder and distributor of the ball. Treaton continues to improve playing bigger/stronger guards than he will see in conference play."

Team Strengths: "We have a well-rounded group of players with a good mix of size and shooters. Balanced scoring has been the key, each one of our players is capable of leading the scoring each game." 

Team Opportunities:  "Five of the 10 players on our roster are new to the program or back from an injury. It will take time to gel and understand each others game. Will play mostly on the Prep Hoops Circuit, giving them the opportunity to play next-level talent this summer."
