The MAYB Summer Kickoff ran late Friday, June 10, through Sunday, Previous reports from days 1 and 2 focused on notables from that day without duplication. This article will share info on players new to the PGH Kansas that competed in the 11th and 12th grade division.
, 5’5″, PG, Newton, Central Kansas, 2023 – Antonovich showed quickness and perimeter shooting ability. Slides well off the high screen to receive a pass to hit the three ball.
MAYB Summer Kickoff 6.11.22 – playing with HS team – Zone buster perimeter shooter. Limited ball skills but runs well, moves well without the ball, and defends with steady quickness. Can dribble at speed and finish in transition off the steal. Can make the soft off-side wing to opposite side block lob., SG, Maize South, 2024 – Zone buster shooter.
Lauren Kice, 5’10”, SF, Kapaun Mt. Carmel, KYD, 2025 – Slender build run has good transition speed, is long limbed, and catches well in transition.
, SF/PF, Arkansas City, KS Cy-Fair Elite, 2025 – Phillips is a high potential, garbage collecting post player who runs the floor well. She has athleticism to try the wrap around layup and hops to bring down a couple extra boards.
Lydia Reed, 6’2″, C/PF, St. John Hudson, 2025 – Reed is a high potential talent. While she has a slender frame Reed has legitimate height and length. Reed is also fast in transition, boxes and elevates well around the basket, and extremely active in the half court trying to work the screen and roll game. She will finish at speed and with extension with both hands. Reed reminds me a great deal of Riverside 2024 center. As she develops her offensive game, gains strength, improves her defensive game against opponent screening games, and has her teammates use her better in the half court Reed can quickly become one of the top Class A players in the state.
Brenna Rucker, 5’9″, SG, Eureka, 2026 – Rucker has a mature game and is a dangerous perimeter shooter. She also showed good toughness. Playing with her Tornadoes high school team Rucker could be found on the wing or working the high post inside due to the team’s lack of size. Ball skills with speed in transition enable her to work the break. Seals well in the post and provides a great target with her hands to teammates to pass to. Calling it now. Eureka will be a good team but with Rucker the Tornadoes will be a really good team.
Ali Singhateh, 5’7″, CG, Eureka, 2026 – Singhateh has as nearly a complete a game as her older sister. She is fast, athletic, finishes with speed and aggression, and has ball skills and great hops. She is a difficult match-up for very much the same reasons.
