If you don't know the name already, get to know it: Chet Holmgren. 

The 7-foot basketball star from Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis is going viral after putting a nasty behind-the-back crossover on NBA star Steph Curry, then blowing by him for a two-handed dunk. 

Adding insult to the two-time MVP, Curry, is that Holmgren did it to him at his own camp, the SC30 Select Camp. Sure, Curry probably wasn't going hard on defense, but it's still a highlight reel moment for a teenage phenom.

Steph Curry's camp includes 30 of the best high school basketball players in the country, and Minnesota's status as a basketball hotbed is only gaining strength as three of the 30 are from the Land of 10,000 Lakes. 

  • Chet Holmgren, Minnehaha Academy (Class of 2021) 
  • Jalen Suggs, Minnehaha Academy (Class of 2020)
  • Paige Bueckers, Hopkins (Class of 2020)

Yes, Minnehaha Academy has two of the best high school hoops players in the country. We'll go out on a limb and say there's a solid chance they defend their status as state champs in 2020. 

As for Holmgren, he's ranked by 247 Sports as the fourth-best recruit in the country in the Class of 2021. 

In addition to being a 7-footer with excellent ball-handling skills, Holmgren can also shoot the 3. Perhaps the best definition of what he does in basketball is his two-word bio on Instagram: "Big Guard."
