Lydia Aalsma, Wisconsin Flight Elite 2025 EYBL

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

-Already a Division I prospect, Aalsma put her game on display in a one-point win over ETG Midwest Elite 2025. Had 9 points/4 rebounds and a strong floor game on both ends of the floor. Handles the ball well, and has a good shooting range, which included a left wing triple and a long two from the top of the key. Showed great body balance on a long drive leading into a pull-up jumper. Freshman starter for Wisconsin State Championship team at Waupun. Very steady in her game, doesn't get phased under heavy pressure.

 

Kendall Anderson, CSS HS White

-Anderson had a strong game in CSS' Championship Game win over Crossfire 2025 Mueller. Did all of her damage from the arc and the free throw line. Connected four times from three, twice off of each wing as she showed a consistent threat from the line. Added an additional 6 free throws, bringing her game total to 18. Had a very steady weekend at Summer Jam. The Wing projects out as a future scholarship candidate.

 

Alyssa Bartlett, Kingdom Hoops 2024 Elite

5'8" 2025 Guard, Southeast Polk HS (IA)

-The Point Guard runs an offense effectively, getting her teams into their sets, pushing tempo when available and knowing when to attack for her own looks. Scholarship level prospect. 11 points (with 3-3s) and 4 rebounds in match-up with North Tartan 2024 EYBL. Had a great stretch in the second half where she showed her range off the left wing (twice) and the right wing, as well as a smooth baseline drive for a finish. Kingdom Hoops is composed primarily of 2025s playing a 2024 schedule effectively and gaining valuable experience for leaders like Bartlett.

 

Macaya Copeland, 43 Hoops 2023 Elite

5'6" 2023 Guard, Hopkins HS (MN)

-When you think about players who are tough to keep in front of you defensively, Copeland certainly pops up on the list. With her strength and north/south mentality she consistently gets the ball deep into the heart of opposing defenses. Had a 16 point/4 rebound outing against Missouri River Elite 2023 in Lake Emma Division Championship game. Among her powerful drives were a baseline runner and top of the key down drive. Consistently draws foul and cashes in from the free throw line, where she tallied 6 points. Someone is going to get a steal at the college level when she arrives on campus.

 

Izabel Durst, Wisconsin Flight Elite 2026 Nike

5'7" 2026 Combo Guard, Barneveld HS (WI)

-As the Flight fought Minnesota Fury 2026 Blue in a one-point loss being a bit short-handed, Durst really elevated her game, as the lefty punched in 10 points & 3 rebounds. Tough off the bounce, twice finishing drives with scores while drawing fouls and completing three point plays. Like that she was also able to take a smaller defender and isolate her on an inside seal. Definite scholarship level prospect who is likely to draw Division I interest with her skill set as she develops. One of top 2026 talents in Wisconsin.

 

Clara Glad, North Tartan 2023 EYBL

6'0" 2023 Guard, Rogers HS (MN)

-In the weekends biggest battle Glad made a trio of the biggest plays in North Tartan's game against Minnesota Metro Stars 2023 Pryor. She is a versatile wing who is a strong defender, rebounds at a plus level, and picks her spots to attack within the offense. Cal-Davis DI commit. She delivered a monster three off the right wing that forced overtime, and had a pair of huge rebounds that let North Tartan maintain possession and score to force double OT. Finished the game with 7 points & 4 rebounds, but her impact was felt on both ends of the floor, strong two-way player.

 

Ella Keenan, Minnesota Stars 2025 Borowicz

5'10" 2025 Forward, Chaska HS (MN)

-I really felt like the edge Keenan gave Stars on the glass in their 2025 Shoe Lake Championship win over Minnesota Fury 2025 UAA was one of the biggest differences in the game. She gathered 13 rebounds, and owned the defensive board throughout. Added 8 points, highlighted by an interior seal and a tough offensive rebound conversion. Showed she can get into transition as a trailer on the break with another finish. Scholarship level prospect who plays for one of the toughest AAAA programs in Minnesota.

 

Jayden Kuper, Team Iowa 2025 Blue Star

5'9" 2025 Forward, Monticello HS (IA)

-Kind of an unwritten rule with me, if you gather 10 or more rebounds in a game I evaluate I'm going to include you in the Top Performers because that often gets overlooked. Kuper had 10 boards (along with 4 points) in Team Iowa's game against Wiscoinsin Flight Elite 2025 EYBL. She is high energy on the glass, gathering them over much bigger opponents with a high motor and the desire to battle inside. Great instincts to the ball. Led her Monticello HS team in scoring (and rebounding) as Freshman so she is solid scoring threat who cashed in a lay-up and offensive board in this one, picking her spots to look for her offense.

 

Tori McKinney, North Tartan 2024 EYBL

6'1" 2024 Guard, Minnetonka HS (MN)

-If there's a stronger defender in the region than McKinney I'd be surprised. With her height and length she is a nightmare for opposing players who draw her as their defensive match-up. Gives 100% of her energy on the defensive end, sacrificing her own offense and glory for the benefit of the team and it's success. This mentality is going to pay off in a big way when she lands with a Division I program and will get minutes immediately because of her defensive prowess. Had a left wing three, and a pair of nice drives, one off the left wing and another down the middle. She can be a consistent offensive weapon, but she is truly elite as a versatile defender.

 

Addi Schneider, Minnesota Fury 2026 Blue

5'9" 2026 Guard, Chaska HS (MN)

-Fury needed every single contribution from their balanced attack in one-point win over Wisconsin Flight Elite 2026 Nike and Schneider delivered as both a scorer (6 points), and particularly off the glass (team-high 8 rebounds). Scholarship level prospect has the size and strength to attack from the edges or compete inside when needed. Showed a nice floater on a drive among her scores and tacked on a pair of inside scores, one of them coming on an offensive rebound. Part of an incredibly deep program at Class AAAA powerhouse Chaska.
