Anchorage teen Kayden Lamebull-Ingram earned several awesome accolades at the Elite Basketball Circuit Jr. All-American Camp in Los Angeles, California.

The 5-foot-6 guard won the Class of 2023 King of the Court 1-on-1 competition out of 150 kids in the seventh-grade division. He is about to begin eighth grade.

Lamebull-Ingram was also named a top 20 player and got to play in the top 20 all-star game. And after that game he was named an Outstanding Performer for his grade.

“I played well at EBC, but as always could have done better,” he told me. “I know I need to come home and do strength training with my dad so I can finish trough the fouls. But right now, I’m going to take a break after a long summer of basketball. I just want to have fun these last few days of summer and get ready for school.”

Right before the Jr. All-American Camp, Lamebull-Ingram was in Nevada with Truth OC for the Big Foot Las Vegas Classic.

The team made it to the semifinals of the Platinum Elite and beat four nationally top 10 teams by double digits in the tournament.

“People are always surprised,” Lamebull-Ingram said. “They don’t expect good players to come from Alaska.”

He also went to the Northwest Regional for the Jr. NBA World Championships with TruGame and played in the Coca Cola Nationals with Truth OC with fellow Alaskans Malachi Bradley of Tanana and Luke Lentfer of Anchorage.
