He was an All-KJCCC Second Team East Division selection and All-Region 6 Second Team selection for NJCAA Division II. Prior to playing at Fort Scott, Fleming played his freshman year at Parkland Community College in Illinois, where he averaged 6.1 points per game. Fleming is a native of Hanover Park, Ill., a suburb of Chicago.

He appeared in 17 games last year as a sophomore and appeared in five games as a freshman.

As a freshman, Stoppel led Neosho in scoring and rebounding at 14.5 points and 7.2 rebounds per game, while also adding 1.3 assists per game. Stoppel was an All-KJCCC Second Team East Division selection and All-Region 6 Honorable Mention pick for NJCAA Division I.

Kite was a Kansas All-Class First Team selection in basketball as a senior, averaging 19.5 points and 10 rebounds per game. He helped Scott Community to a third consecutive state championship in basketball in 2013. He averaged a double-double his final two years of high school.
