Standouts: TBBCA Summer League Finals

TAMPA, FLORIDA – The TBBCA Summer League wrapped up on Wednesday night with a trio of games that featured the gold final between rivals Tampa Catholic and Jesuit.

Here’s a look at the top performers from the evening.

2024 6-1 G Chris Moliere – Jesuit

It was quite the outing for Chris Moliere (pictured above). The 2024 6-foot-1 guard put the team on his back against rival Tampa Catholic in the championship matchup to pull out the win. He was beyond physical downhill, getting by multiple defenders and guys bigger than him. Moliere’s combination of pure athleticism, upper body strength and finishing touch were on full display on Wednesday night. He gained a lot of stock from this game.

—2024 6-foot-2 guard Nate Boakye had quite the second half, getting to wherever he wanted on the floor, kicking out nifty passes and scoring from the mid-range and inside. 2025 6-foot-7 forward Carter Reins didn’t have a complete game, but had very bright moments late throwing down dunks and getting by defenders for finishes and tip-backs.

2024 6-3 G Daniel Thompson – Bartow

Shooting and hustle are two key attributes of Daniel Thompson’s game. The 2024 6-foot-4 guard connected on some clutch jumpers for Bartow down the stretch as his side rallied back and beat Winthrop in the opening game of the night. He has a knack of finding openings, shooting with confidence and getting to the rack. Thompson has a lot of smarts on his side.

—2026 6-foot-1 guard Ja’Kylen Crossley has a chance to be very good. He displayed a good looking 3-point shot and floor pushing ability. Crossley is developing on a very in-sync Bartow squad.

2025 5-11 G J’London Bivens – Tampa Prep

Tampa Prep has a lot of athletes in place and J’London Bivens might be the best one of them all. The 2025 5-foot-11 guard has some serious leaping ability as a rebounder and is simply athletic. He was in on every play offensively, making an impact as a passer or finisher. Defensively, he plays with toughness and smarts. Bivens is a complete two-way player.

—2024 6-foot-2 guard Chandler White-Brooks flashed his floater and mid-range game often and was an active rebounder throughout the win against Durant. 2027 5-foot-11 guard Christian Fuller lit it up from deep and is already on his way to being one of the most gifted shooters in the area.

2024 6-6 G Karter Knox – Tampa Catholic

Karter Knox is fresh off being ranked No. 6 overall in ESPN’s latest 2024 rankings and has had a heck of a spring with the Florida Rebels. He sure looked like one of the best prospects in the country against Jesuit in the nightcap. The 2024 6-foot-6 guard is at his best when he gets downhill and attacks and he did that a ton through multiple defenders, putting back misses with dunks and clean ups. Knox was vicious on the boards and got going from long range throughout.

—2026 6-foot-3 guard Sohan Alla is a new face for Tampa Catholic that needs to be on college coaches boards. The rising sophomore can flat out shoot it. He hit from all over the circle and has a super fast and pure release. Look for him to be a key shooter for this team.

2025 6-5 F Jason Johnson – Winthrop

Winthrop gave a tough and physical Bartow group a run for its money in a back and forth tilt. Jason Johnson proved himself as a core and tough nosed rebounder as well as an inside slasher. The 2025 6-foot-5 hit a ridiculous half court heave to beat the halftime buzzer. Johnson should be a steady two-way piece for this team this season.

—2024 6-foot guard Jordon Spicer led the offensive pace with confidence and smarts. He flashed his quick twitch ability and floor pushing prowess. Spicer is an in control point man.

2024 6-1 G Austin White – Durant

Durant did have a complete team performance but Austin White sure scored in bunches. The 2024 6-foot-1 has one of the quick releases you’ll see of any shooter across the state. White got going, especially in the second half and made the defense pay with his outside touch. He’s definitely in discussion as one of the top jump shooters in Hillsborough County.
