Marc Stern of Capitol Hoops and Adam Ayalew of Prep Hoops have put together a comprehensive list of the all summer league teams at DeMatha Summer league.  A handful of DMV basketball media insiders, summer league coaches, local coaches, and scouts have added input.





The list reflects play from DeMatha summer league only.  It takes into account the # of games players played in, and their impact/performance in summer league.  High school play, AAU play, player rankings, etc does not have any baring on these lists.

In alphabetical order


Xavier Johnson – O’Connell

Johnson was arguably the most dominant player throughout the summer. His ability to defend at a high level, consistently get in the paint, create for others, and make shots from the perimeter proved to be a deadly combination. 

Casey Morsell – St. John’s

Morsell was probably the most consistent player for Head Coach Patrick Behan in the summer league. He certainly turned up the intensity during the playoffs, and in particular the final two games. His inside/outside package is a difficult cover.  He is tremendous at contesting perimeter jumpers.


Matthew Balanc, Springbrook

Balanc proved that he can compete against high level competition, and gave max effort each time he hit the floor.

Saddiq Bey, Sidwell Friends

Bey nearly carried a short handed Sidwell team into the playoffs, and recorded double-doubles regularly in the process.

Jared Bynum, Georgetown Prep

Bynum not only helped Prep control tempo on offense, but with his defense as well. He was the total package this summer and has a great basketball disposition.

Hunter Dickinson, DeMatha

Even though he was not featured in all games, Dickinson thoroughly impressed whenever he stepped out onto the floor. He is absolutely dominant in the paint, and is a tremendous passer.

Anwar Gill, Gonzaga

Gill did a bit of everything for his team. We were impressed with his playmaking ability, and his efficiency around the basket.


Stephen Cannady, Pallotti

Cannady was the most consistent and reliable player for his team. He ran the show for a Pallotti team that reached the summer league Final-4.

Jaden Faulkner, Eleanor Roosevelt

Faulker constantly displayed high level playmaking ability on both ends of the floor. His lock-down defense is a real asset to his package.

Devon Flowers, Potomac School

Flowers exhibited his defensive versatility, and asserted himself on the offensive end.

Mezie Offurum, Georgetown Prep

Offurum flirted with triple doubles in his last two games, and is showing signs of increased production. He fills up the stat sheet and contributes in all areas.

Terrance Williams, Gonzaga

Williams was one of the more efficient finishers we saw, but also showed that he can get others involved. His range is awful impressive for a big.


Matt Becht, O’Connell

Is there a better shooter in the DMV than Becht? Probably not, and he showed why throughout the summer.

Makhi Mitchell, McNamara

Mitchell is a key part of potentially the most dominant front court in the WCAC. 

Ike Nweke, Georgetown Prep

Nweke has a reputation as a work horse, and a strong inside finisher. We also saw his ability to score outside of the paint.

Earl Timberlake, DeMatha

Timberlake primarily played the point, and did a bit of everything on both ends of the floor for the Stags. He finished well and shot a high % from the line.

Tre Wood, St. John’s

Wood was a key factor in his team’s championship run, and did his best to get others involved while playing high level defense. One of the more innovative guards in the DMV, Wood plays like a crafty vet.
