On3 MVP: 4-star SG Darius Adams, LaLumiere (2025)

Darius Adams was feeling good in this one, scoring the ball from every level with nothing forced. Adams’ game has been on an upward trajectory for the past 12 months, and this showing was everything coming together. Adams is a smooth 6-foot-4 shooting guard. He has built his reputation as a shooter, and he was knocking it down today. He was comfortable shooting off movement or off the catch, finding his balance points and quickly getting squared. Where his game looked most improved here was off the bounce. While not the most explosive athlete, he used some crafty hesitation dribbles good pace to create space. The ball did not stick with him, if he was not open, he would move the ball and relocate. Adams finished with an event-high 30 points. He was an efficient 10-of-15 from the field and 6-of-9 from three.

2. 4-star SG Nojus Indrusaitis, Brewster Academy (Iowa State)

It seems that Nojus Indrusaitis is never rushed. Despite playing at his own pace, he is always on balance and he is always a threat to rise up in the half-court. In this game, the shots went in at a high clip. The Iowa State signee has been knocking down shots all season, shooting 39.2 percent from three on 5.1 attempts coming into this one. He plays with a toughness and understands advantage. The 6-foot-4 guard played consistently off two feet, getting into the paint when he was not open for his jump shot. He got into his three-off movement and off the bounce and was patient with his attempts, letting the play come to him. 

3. 4-star CG Juni Mobley, Wasatch Academy (Ohio State)

Juni Mobley has long had a reputation as a shot-maker. He lived up to that reputation in this one as he drained looks from all over the floor. Mobley is a compact guard and he is continuing to find a balance this season with playing on the ball and feeding his teammates and hunting his shots. Mobley’s teammates had no problem finding him when his team needed a play, and Mobley took care of the ball, not turning it over. He finished with 23 points, going 3-of-6 from three with five assists and no turnovers. 

4. 4-star PG Elijah Crawford, Brewster Academy (Stanford)

Elijah Crawford’s game has taken a huge step forward this season, and much of that had to do with getting his body right. Crawford, still a strong and compactly built lead guard, is quick to get to his spots while also playing with a good pace in traffic. He was not rushed here, surveying the floor, and making correct reads. Crawford closed the game for Brewster, playing good point-of-attack defense and handling the pressure without a turnover in the second half. The Stanford signee finished with 23 points, going 7-of-12 from the field and 9-of-9 from the free-throw line. He added two steals, six assists, and only one turnover in the win. 

5. 4-star SG Vyctorius Miller, AZ Compass (Oregon)

Oregon had two coaches in to watch Vyctorius Miller and he did not disappoint. The 6-foot-5 guard played a smooth floor game, showcasing pace and shot-making abilities. The three-point shot was working early as he knocked down three of them in the first half. He played at a great pace, moved the ball when necessary, and did not force anything allowing the play to come to him. Miller’s steady play helped his Chandler (AZ) AZ Compass team hold on to the 56-54 win in a true road game. Miller finished the contest with 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting, 4-of-5 from three while adding three assists and three steals. 

6. 3-star PF Terry Copeland, Legacy Early College 

Terry Copeland played tough. He was physical, he was productive, and he talked throughout the course of the game, bringing his Greenville (SC) Legacy Early College team back from a double-figure second-half deficit to a chance to win the game. Copeland has a strong frame with good length and he uses his body very well. He finished at the basket and drew fouls, getting to the free throw and his defense got stops in huge moments. Copeland is an un-committed senior. The 6-foot-7 forward finished tied for a game-high 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting while adding five rebounds, three assists, and three blocks. 

Other Pete Hollis Top Performers

4-star SF Jalen Haralson, LaLumiere (2025) has a natural feel for the game. He is a good passer and a quick processor with the ball in his hands. He was at his best when matched up with the opposing team’s four-man, acting as a point forward-type. Haralson shot the ball well here too finishing with 15 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and four steals.

4-star F Sebastian Wilkins, Brewster Academy (2026) is productive, it is as simple as that. He has a good frame with a nice length and a nose for the ball. He knocked down a three in this one, off the catch, and he finished well around the basket. The scoring bag will need to continue developing, but he continues to string together good performances. 

3-star C Daniel Jacobsen, Brewster Academy (Purdue) continues to be a presence around the basket. He finished his shots with efficiency and he cleaned up things around the rim. Eight points and four blocks on the game with a handful more indimitates at the he basket. 

PG Zion Paleo, Veritas Christian (2025) has a crafty feel to his game. A good handle and excellent court sense. He plays well in the pick and roll, and processes reads quickly, and distributes effectively. Got a lot done with his middle game. He finished with a team-high 18 points, six rebounds, three assists, and three steals.
