The schedule for the 2013 Midwest Showdown Shootout has been announced. This is annually one of the top shootouts to go to in December bringing out some of the best St. Louis talent as well as prospects from surrounding states.
This year the full day of basketball will be held on Saturday, December 14 at McCluer North High School in St. Louis.
There will be four teams from the state of Illinois in Morgan Park, Plainfield East, Alton, and Alton Marquette. Morgan Park is the defending 3A state champs and returns top 10 in-state senior Josh Cunningham. Plainfield East has one of Illinois’ best 2015 prospects in shooting guard Aaron Jordan. Alton junior two guard Carlos Anderson is a powerful scorer. Alton Marquette has division one 2014 prospect Deion Lavender.
From a national perspective the headliner is CBC (MO) small forward Jordan Barnett. The Texas commit is an explosive athlete that has huge upside. Bentonville (AR) sophomore shooting guard Malik Monk is a top 10 prospect in the class of 2016 and can put up buckets in a hurry. Other prospects to keep an eye on include Andrew Fleming (Ensworth), Chris Kendrix (Willard – Missouri State Commit), Chaz Glotta (Ft. Zumwalt North – SIU Commit), Josh Robinson (St. Mary’s – Austin Peay Commit), Casey Teson (St. Charles), and Rashad Lindsey (McCluer North).
