By Chuck Thompson

The following players were selected from games covered on Courts 6, 9 at Shakopee High School on Saturday, June 18th at North Tartan Summer Jam.

 

Bergan Kinnebrew, Missouri River Elite 2023

5'10" 2023 Guard, Bismarck Century HS (ND)

-Kinnebrew was one of the most prolific scorers on the weekend at Summer Jam, which included a 27 point outburst in a 60-30 win over Minnesota Stars 2023 Reineke in the Lake Emma Division semifinals. She showed range off the right wing and top with a pair of threes, but she did the vast majority of her damage on drives. Crafty on the move, she drove from either side with short or long attacks, and showed a quality step-back jumper. An added dimension to her game is she competes on the glass. She tacked on 6 rebounds, and cashed 3 of those in for second chance points. She's slipped a bit under the radar, but this weekend she played great and should generate additional scholarship interest.

 

Kennedy Klick, North Tartan 2023 EYBL

6'0" 2023 Guard, Maple Grove HS (MN)

-Klick had an outstanding weekend, she was as good as any player at Summer Jam, and that included her 19 point effort against All Iowa Attack 2023 Red in a 57-46 win. The Minnesota commit was dynamic on the offensive end. She glides on drives and is especially deadly working the baseline, where she showed a spin finish, a smooth jumper and several direct attacks resulting in scores. She has emerged into one of the regions elite players, and a large part of that is also her ability to lock-down opposing wings consistently. She rebounds her position at a plus level, and don't give her too much cushion on her dribble drives because she also has a soft touch from the arc off the wings.

 

Liv McGill, Minnesota Metro Stars 2023 Pryor

5'9" 2024 Guard, Hopkins HS (MN)

-When your coach tells you that you will be guarding maybe the best player in the country one on one with no help, that is a testament to your ability to defend, and McGill did that, and much more in a 61-57 win over All Iowa Attack 2023 EYBL. She had to focus every ounce of her energy into guarding and did a tremendous job, and STILL had a double-double on the offensive end with 13 points and 10 rebounds. McGill has emerged as one of the truly elite 2024 players not only in the region, but the country. She has a passion for the game that is second to none, and her future shines bright. The best 2024 I saw this weekend at Summer Jam and my #1 ranked 2024 regionally.

 

Kate McGinnis, Wisconsin Flight Elite 2025 EYBL

5'10" 2025 Guard, Kimberly HS (WI)

-McGinnis came up big for Flight in a 52-51 win over Team Iowa 2025 Blue Star, posting a game-high 18 points and pulling down 5 rebounds. She is a player I would expect to take a big step forward in her recruiting with continued good play into July and this coming High School season. Shifty off the bounce, she changes directions well and on drives she scored twice with quick pull-up jumpers. Showed she can finish short and long drives, as well as from anywhere from the top, off the wings, and baselines. One of the top 2025 performances I saw during the weekend.

 

McKenna Murphy, Nebraska Attack 2024 UAA

5'10" 2024 Shooting Guard, Fremont HS (NE)

-Some players seem poised for a major breakout, both as a player and in recruiting, and the more I see Murphy the more I anticipate that for her as a Division I recruit. Give her any space on the perimeter and she'll snipe you from the arc, like she did 5 times on her way to 17 points in a win against SD Network 2024 Kasib. Effective as shooter off both wings and both corners, making her a great fit in catch/shoot actions. Consistently rebounds her position, tacking on 4 in this evaluation. Has the size and build to work from either the 2 Guard or 3 Guard/Small Forward positions at the college level.

 

Jordan Ode, Minnesota Fury 2025 UAA

6'0" 2025 Combo Guard, Maple Grove HS (MN)

-Ode had probably the best performance I've seen this season by a 2025 in Fury's 46-30 win over All Iowa Attack 2025 Nike Red. She finished with 28 points and 4 rebounds in the game. It wasn't just the 28 points, it was the variety of scoring options she highlighted in her game. Hit four three pointers from across the board, with a smooth step-back triple in the mix. Attacked from the perimeter and got to the line, knocking down 8 free throws. Had some strong drives, several of which she triggered with a cross-over set-up which is effective because of her length to draw defenders in, then snap it back to shift directions. One of the top 2025 talents in the region.

 

Taylor Stremlow, Wisconsin Flight Elite 2024 UAA

5'9" 2024 Point Guard, Verona HS (WI)

-After missing the High School season with an injury, it's great having Stremlow, a highly regarded Division I prospect, back on the floor with Flight. She led a balanced attack with 11 points and pulled down 5 rebounds in 49-32 victory over Wisconsin Impact 2024 Kelley. She's dynamic with the ball in her hands, whether creating for others, or displaying her own extensive offensive skill set. Attacks downhill off the bounce and with a strong build she takes on contact exceptionally well. Can attack from anywhere on the perimeter. If she finds a smaller defender can exploit them on an iso inside. Reads passing lanes defensively and twice turned steals into scores at the other end.

 

 

Abby Tuttle, All Iowa Attack 2025 Nike Red

5'9" 2025 Guard, North Polk HS (IA)

-I'm more impressed with Tuttle each time I see her play. She has a great feel for the game, makes great decisions with the ball, and is highly productive from her Guard spot. Had an 18 point effort in Attack's 57-42 win over Minnesota Stars 2026 Hill. She is consistent from anywhere on the offensive end as a scoring threat. Showed range from the top of the key, utilized a floater off the bounce, and added another score on a quick dive to the rim for a finish. Quality Division I prospect. Can finish in transition game and at rim with drives, including a pretty reverse lay-up in traffic.

 

Ava Zediker, All Iowa Attack 2024 EYBL

5'10" 2025 Guard, Dowling Catholic HS (IA)

-Zediker continues to have a strong season with one of the elite 2024 teams in the country, producing 12 points for a balanced Attack group in a 58-47 win over North Tartan 2025 Nike. She's a strong shooter, evidenced by a college-level three off the left wing in transition. She gets her feet set quickly and has a smooth and rapid release. She's gotten constantly better attacking off the bounce, finishing drives, including one with a spin move and another off transition. High Major talent who is a dynamic scorer at the High School and Club levels.
