SEBA All-Star Shootout: Best Shooters
MARIETTA, GA – In Part 2 of our look at SEBA’s All-Star Shootout from last weekend, we focus on in some of the many shooters who tickled the twine in front of a nice turnout of coaches and scouts.

Mekhi Mawdesley, 6-5, SG, Habersham Central, 2022 (pictured above)
Quite familiar from his BCB summer performance how hot he can get from up to 3 or 4 steps past the arc, had a run in one of his games that had coaches scribbling into their notebooks, classic catch and shoot quickness at his size is clearly attractive to the next-level.
Lukas Platauna, 6-5, SG, Woodville Thompkins, 2022
An absolute bucket if left open, repping the Savannah-area well he too drew oohs and aahs from the sidelines, quick and pure release, excellent size to shoot over smaller guards, good foot speed to use the bounce to create space.
Jaiden Mann, 6-4, SG, Marietta, 2024
One of the ATL-Metro’s rising stars in my eyes, pure and polished feel about his release, has the look of a natural shooter who has gradually been showing us more and more game each time out closer in to the basket.
Dane Fisher, 6-0, SG, Model, 2022
A spot-up fiend, slyly finds the line in transition and gets a lot of loft on his shot, ready to shoot at all times and had some of the deepest range I saw all day.
Hampton Goff, 6-0, SG, Greenbrier, 2022
Like Fisher another one who will in spots linger along the arc for opportunities, also showed some nice variety and guts getting into traffic, excellent decisions in the mid-range as well showed off the IQ.
Elijah Wiseman, 6-2, SG/PG, Cumberland Christian, 2022
No list of shooters at any event he’s at can omit Wiseman and his near perfect release, love how he gets square even at change of speeds, gets off the deck well with a pretty follow-through and can hurt you from all levels.
MJ Winter, 6-1, PG, Mt Pisgah, 2022
Streaky but has a great-looking lefty release and is known as a spurts scorer, will be a feature guy at last at Pisgah and together with his elite on-ball defense can be a real steal as a scoring PG at the next level.
JoJo Bell, 6-3, SG, Central-Carrollton, 2022
Had an underrated summer with SEBA FCI Warriors and like teammate Cayden Charles came alive from hidden gem status to someone to watch, bunches type scorer with a nice mix of long-range ability and athletic slashing into the mid-range.
Trey Harris, 6-5, SG, North Paulding, 2022
In the couple games I saw him maybe not as steaming hot as he usually can get but the action off the hands is textbook and you combine his sneak-up-on-you athletic ability with his lengthy 6-5 and it’s easy to see how he can help a next-level program as a wing bomber.
