Maricopa, AZ – Native American Basketball Invitational is the Most Prestigious Native American Basketball tournament in the Country. 64 Boys and Girls teams come together to make the largest field of teams in any Native American basketball event. Grateful to of watched the talent on display. It was a treat to watch!
Below is our run down of top performers from the event. So much talent throughout the NABI Event but the top 5 were considered because they separated themselves from the pack.
The top 5 –
Micah Lena -2018 – New Lima, OK – 6’5″ Wing – Native American Basketball Invitational MVP! Surprisingly athletic, can score in a variety of different ways, he was easy to talk to and carried himself well. He’ll be a great pick up for any college squad!
Stephon Hall – 2018 – Oklahoma City, OK – 6’0″ PG – He didn’t necessarily play on the best squad but you could see the talent. Excellent pull up, great handle, and gets to his spots well on the court. He plays for Oklahoma Power and holds current offers from USAO and Oklahoma Christian.
Ivory Miles-Williams – 2017 – Lapwai, ID – 6’3″ Guard – One of the toughest on the court at all times. Fills the stat sheet up and does all the little things.. Takes charges, dives after loose balls. He is signed with College of Idaho next year
Robert McClain Jr. – 2017 – Red Lake, MN – 6’5″ Wing – The Most Athletic Player at the event. If he didn’t get injured who knows what would of happened. He can attack with either hands, plays on both ends, and like I said ATHLETIC. Signed with St. Thomas next year.
Mason Archambault – 2018 – Rapid City, SD – 6’1″ Guard – Reclassified to 2018 and plans on taking a year of prep school to fine tune his game. He is explosive and very strong for his size. He answered all questions of weather he was good enough to play at a high collegiate level.
