One of the best matchups I’ve seen in awhile in high school basketball!!!!
Class of 2025 Cooper Flagg of Maine United 2025 vs Class of 2026 AJ Dybantsa of Expressions Elite 2025 is one of the best matchups I’ve seen in awhile. They actually guarded each other most of the game, you usually do not see that. Maine United won by 3.
Flagg is a 6’8” do it all player who actually did it all this game. Hit threes, scored on the interior with back to the basket and on dribble drives to the basket. Rim protected with a bunch of blocked shots and rebounds. Gets to the free throw line a lot. Feel for the game is great for a young man his age. Moves his feet well guarding the perimeter and did a decent job with Dybantsa. I’ll take a flyer and say he’ll be the best to ever come out of Maine. Headed to Montverde Academy in Florida.
Dybantsa is 6’7” wing who can hit threes, mid range, and attack the basket off the dribble. Does have to improve his left hand, and is a good rebounder for wing player. Was effective taking Flagg to the perimeter and scoring on pull-up jump shots. Is a good rim protector for a wing player and runs the floor well, changing ends with a lot of speed and quickness. The best player coming into high school in America hands down.
