Washington County HS Guard Omari Harris: There is plenty to like about what this young man brings to the table, he is a bigger guard at 6’3 and understands how to use his size to his advantage. He has a pretty quick first step, ability to score the ball on multiple levels and he doesn’t try to avoid contact in the paint but instead seeks it out.

Village Christian Guard Zy Mclean: He put in his fair share of time in the gym and it’s shown the past few times that we watched him play. He plays with confidence, energy and a sureness that you don’t see from a high amount of youngsters. The ability to beat his man off the dribble or pull and knock down shots were just a few of the things that we saw from Zy.

Boyle County HS Guard Aden Stone: We liked the confidence and flair that he played the game with but he didn’t allow that to overshadow the substance he has as well. Scoring the ball was one of the things we liked about him but also his ability to read his defender and passing the ball where he knew his teammates were supposed to be were also good things. He has several plays that made the crowd say ohh and ahh during his matchup with another top guard early in the day.

New Hanover HS Guard Maleec Myers: This youngster plays the game with an edge to him, you won’t see him back down from any type of challenge even though he may be smaller than many of the players he goes against. He has nice end to end speed, quick hands and a floater that he used to score the ball over taller opponents. With New Hanover HS losing a high amount of players this year due to graduation, we could see him come in early and often to be an impact guys for them if he remains locked in.

Iron Academy Guard Parker Hodgson: Knock down shooter that did a great job of moving without the ball and making the most out of his opportunities. He did a solid job of using what screens he got well but also using shot fakes, jab steps and pivots to keep the game simple but efficient.
