BBallCO Colorado Live 2024 Top10

Choosing the Top10 of anything isn’t easy, especially when it comes to the Colorado Live event, where so many players, especially the juniors and sophomores, had good weekends. However, these players stoodout about the rest. There are a couple of other players that could argue to be in the Top10 but they are listed in the class EyeCatcher reports. Yes . I know there are only seven players on the Top10 graphic I didn’t have any high-quality photos of the other three that were worthy of being put in the graphic

Player of the Event

2025 Tanner Braketa 6’1 guard Ralston Valley. He played and carried himself like the best player in the gym all weekend. His confidence in his shot and passing was at a level we haven’t seen. He played a complete game on both sides of the floor and was a willing defender as well. This is the best physically we have seen him since before last summer. He also played very determined or locked in when facing Judge, knowing that there was another high-caliber player on the floor. It was almost like he was saying he was there to prove he was the best in the gym. Earn and offer from D1 North Dakota.


The Rest

Any of these players could be 2-10 and arguments wouldn’t be wrong

2025 Carson Flowers, 6’3 guard Legend, was hard to guard all weekend. He made play after play getting to the rim and finishing through contact. He shot it well from three. He didn’t back down on the defensive end of the floor. What stood out the most was that he let the game come to him. He rarely forced shots, and it seemed like he was always open as he moved well without the ball. He did a great reading the defense and knew when to cut to the basket.

2025 Ethan Berninger, 6’4 guard Dakota Ridge, filled up the basket over the weekend. One of the top scorers at the event easily averaging over 23 points per game. He was good at getting to the rim and not forcing jumpers. He hunted down his three-point shots and was very effective from behind the arc. He earned an offer from Metro State after the event.

2025 Dominic Rhoads-Martinez Denver South played tremendously over the weekend. His effort and intensity were never in question. He was tough with the ball in his hands and it seemed like he finished everything that he got off in lane. He passed the ball well and he shot it well from three. He had one of the best games against Fossil Ridge and led a failed comeback, scoring 12 points in less than 2 minutes. Tough player who made plays all weekend. Winner.

2025 Blake Marshall, 6’4 guard Pine Creek, may have been the best three-point shooter at the event. He averaged over, making six threes per game, and hit nine threes in his final game. His threes and his ability to handle the ball kept his team in games. He doesn’t over shoot and finds ways to get himself really good looks at the basket. He showed he can put it on the floor as well.

2025 JJ Apathjang Judge Memorial 6’3 guard was electric with the ball at times, playing fast-paced and free with the ball boarding out of control at times. He showed of this athletic ability and shot it very well. Used his body and long arms well to finish at the rim. Quick off the floor on the defensive end, shooting gaps, and looking to block shots. One that region coaches should keep an eye on. Earned an offer from D1 Northern Kentucky.

2025 James Murray IV Denver East 6’5 guard that had a very efficient and effective event. Murray was his typical self, looking for opportunities to get to the basket, all the while being ready to smoothly shoot the three. In one game, he had six threes before halftime. He did a good job finishing at the rim, not settling for floating around the three-point line.

London Praytor Liberty 6’10 forward showed a lot of potential and promise over the weekend. He showed that he is more than just a three-point shooter on the offensive end of the floor. He got back to crashing the board from the wing and looked good doing it. His scoring around the basket and his three-point shot did not suffer. He was very active defensively on the boards and blocking shots. The effort was there. He earned offers from UCCS and Mesa.

2026 Eric Fiedler Regis Jesuit 6’7 forward shooting ability from three set him apart from the other bigs to go along with his aggressiveness in the lane and on the boards. He was efficient at shooting and scoring, and no one that Regis faced had much of an answer for him. He dominated the games he played in. He shared the ball as well and didn’t take bad shots.

2026 Jermiah Trimm, 6’3 guard, played like a top three player in his class over the event. There may have been others who scored more, but that had a lot to do with Trimm. He still scored it well and was very good at getting to the rim or drilling mid-range jumpers. It was his passing and his willingness to make the right play that stood out above others. He played with high energy and worked on the defensive end of the floor.
