By Fury Staff, 08/31/23, 10:15AM CDT


Fury Antl 15U finished the 2023 AAU season with a record of 39-5, with 3 of those losses to 16U teams. Antl 15U saw success early with great ball movement, team defense and stellar three-point shooting. They started the season winning the Comets Shootout and would go on to start the season 22-0. Fury Antl also won the first stint of the Scheels Prospect League and finished 2nd in the Prep Hoops Finals. This group continued to shoot the lights out all year and became a very tight-knit group on and off the floor. Coach Brandon Antl, “This group was a pleasure to coach all year long, extremely proud of the togetherness that was created and how the guys transitioned that to the court. Really fun style of basketball with fantastic players and families. Excited to see their growth!”

G Isaac Olmstead was a great distributor leading the offense in transition and in the half court in ball screens. Scoring on all three levels for us. Olmstead led the team in scoring and assists and will have a big winter as PG for Wayzata.

G Bennet Skinner had a great season shooting the three ball. Deadly from anywhere past half court, Skinner led our team in 3-point percentage. He continued to add pieces to his game throughout the season. Mid-range pulls and competitiveness on the defensive end improved. Skinner will see time and excel for East Ridge in a similar role this winter.

G Ja’khi Hollie was our best on ball defender at the guard position. Hollie is relentless on the ball and created energy every time he took the court. Led our team in charges taken and averaged 2-3 a tournament. Great teammate and multisport star for Rosemount.

G Lucas Gustafson had a really great season improving his game. Gustafson is a deadly three-point shooter and shot the ball at a high percentage all year with deep range. Gustafson improved with the ball off ball screens, finding the open man and finishing at the rim. Gustafson also provided spark on the defensive end and would score in bunches for us. Big year at Mankato East for Gustafson this winter playing PG and SG.

F Casey Fliehe was extremely dependable playing multiple positions and roles. Fliehe excelled as a three-point threat in the second half of the season and gave us much needed consistency. Fliehe knows every positions job on offense and often guarded bigger players on defense. Fliehe’s effort resulted in offensive rebounds and hustle plays that made differences all year. This winter Fliehe will be a shooter for Lakeville South.

F Kayden Oakland had a great season as a do-it-all wing. Oakland’s size and strength allowed him to be effective around the rim and he also improved his outside shot to a consistent level throughout July. Oakland guarded the best player every game and can guard 1-5. Oakland is great in transition and an awesome teammate. Oakland plays for Northfield and will have a huge winter.

F Ryker Van Nostrand played the wing and even the 5 for us at times this season. Did a great job rolling with whatever was thrown at him. Great passer and vision, Van Nostrand got to the rim as a finisher and as a distributor, finding cutters on his drives. Van Nostrand has a killer mid-range and is effective in transition. Van Nostrand really stood out with his defensive effort and always playing the right way. Washburn will have Van Nostrand this winter, big things ahead.

F Alex Schroepfer was often our best player on the court. Very effective scoring the ball on all three levels. Multiple efforts on defense and finishing plays with rebounds. Used his quickness all year to get by bigger defenders. Awesome leader for us. Ceiling is the limit for Schroepfer, he will be a main threat for Eagan this winter.

F Tommy Shunmugavelu played the 5 for us this year and excelled in many different areas. Shunmugavelu led our team in rebounding and was extremely proficient at securing offensive rebounds, often resulting in a kick out 3. Shunmugavelu used his size to his advantage but also has great skill and vision when in transition or in the half court in post up scenarios. Shunmugavelu continues to add finishes around the rim and led our defense with his talking and movement. Shunmugavelu will be at Wayzata this winter and is a key piece as he plays winning basketball.
