The PrepHoops Route 66 Kickoff featured a number of talented programs and players this past weekend in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Offering multiple brackets and every team receiving a minimum of four games, this event was perfect for teams attending to get some game time before the live period. Here is who stood out over the weekend:
2018 PG Xavier Rhodes, Team Carroll
After starting for MoKan Elite the past three years, one of the best all-around guards in the Kansas City metro area, Xavier is now playing with Team Carroll and was outstanding this past weekend, getting to the rim and scoring at will. The best facet of his game is his passing ability. A smart player with an unbelievable feel for the game, he rarely makes the incorrect play. Towards the end of their third and final game Saturday night, Xavier leaked out in transition threw down one of the best in game dunks on another player I have ever seen live. Fundamentally sound, smart, and athletic. Look for him to have a BIG summer while picking up Division I offers along the way.
