Below is a look at several Day Two players that stood out:
Kendyl Sanders 6’6″ 2024 St. Bernard (Playa del Rey CA)
Sanders has been very impressive so far here this weekend – leading Belmont Shore 17 to a 3-0 record so including a 84-82 win over a loaded and deep Elev8 Elite National (CA) squad. Kendyl had a team-high 26 points in that contest. With the departure of 6-0 2023 Tyler Rolison, Sanders is expected to play a more featured role for Tony Bland’s St. Bernard program next season and his emergence as a legit and versatile inside-out threat will make the Vikings a CIFSS-Open Division contender next year. NCAA tourney runners-up San Diego State among the growing number of schools showing interest in Sanders.
Keyon Kensie 6’8” 2023 Taft (Woodland Hills CA)
Keyon is a long and ultra-athletic wing that creates well off the bounce. One of the West Coast’s top seniors still on the board is getting interest from San Diego, Syracuse, USC, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington State, UC-Santa Barbara and High Point
Denzell Hines 6’6” 2023 Colony (Ontario CA)
Strong wing has very nice 3-point touch – scoring a game-high 28 points (6 threes) vs, Belmont Shore. Could be a late steal for right low-mid D1 program or national scholarship JC.
Demarco Johnson 6’4” 2025 SoCal Academy (CA)
Johnson is an active and assertive guard always in attack mode. Paul George Elite 16 EYBL standout had 17 points (2 threes) in Win over Vegas Elite EYBL15u squad.
Justin Daniels 6’5” 2023 Colorado Prep (Denver CO)
Wired to score combo-guard caught fire against Elev8 Elite National 17 – scored 20 points in Belmont Shore’s win that included a hailstorm of 5 threes.
Jaxon Richardson 6’5” 2026 Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas NV)
Very promising young swingman is a maturing athlete with a bright future. Brother Jase Richardson is highly regarded 2024 recruit and dad Jason Richardson played at Michigan State and in the NBA.

Will Smith 6’4” 2023 Bishop Montgomery (Torrance CA)
Smith scored 2 of his 15 points on a mid-range put-back as time expired to lift Belmont Shore over a strong Elev8 Elite National squad. Rugged defender with ability to finish at the rim through contact.

Sharpshooting WG has emerging athleticism at the rim.
Treymayne Anderson 6’5” 2025 Centennial (Las Vegas NV)

Center with massive size is a work in progress but it’s coming along. Shot-blocker has improved touch around cup and and is an imposing figure in the paint.
Kavon Ray 6’2” 2024 Venice (Los Angeles CA)
Quick as a cat lefty PG can get finish at rim as well as create space for his jumper via use of a crafty cross-over dribble. Will reclassify to 2024 and spend next season at Future College Prep (CA) or Veritas Prep (CA).

Strong and physical lead guard can really defend and has ability to score off the bounce through traffic.
