The Hoops and Dreams showcase is returning to Fayetteville, NC once again this year, first and foremost we have to give an S/O to Lucas Moore Realty. They have brought an amazing event to the area which not only allows teams to compete at a high level but also gives some exposure to high schools. So let’s jump right into the list of teams and players that will be in the building for this event.

Trinity Christian(Fayetteville, NC): Trinity is a well-known program that has brought home numerous NCISAA 1A state titles and will look to repeat this season.

Prospect to Watch: Providence Commit Greg Gantt is the highest level prospect on this squad and will be called on to put up a big time performance. He plays the game at a high level, doesn’t mind physicality, and is one of the more versatile players in the state.

Trinity Academy (Raleigh, NC): Plenty of people are excited to see what this team will bring to the table, they will have a bit of a different look this season as well as one of the tougher non-conference schedules in the area.

Prospect to Watch: 2020 Forward Isaiah Todd is a top ranked player nationally with offers from schools such as Kentucky and UNC. He’s 6’10 with a very high skillset, can score it from all levels but does an outstanding job of not forcing things and allowing the game to come to him.

Farmville Central HS: The Jaguars had an outstanding season last year advancing deep into the playoffs and they return one of the top backcourts In the entire state.

Propsects to Watch: PG Justin Wright & SG Terquavion Smith are both D1 prospect that have picked up offers from HM and MM programs already. They both can score the ball at a high level and averaged over 20 PPG last season.

Cape Fear Christian (Erwin, NC): The Eagles will look somewhat familiar as far as rosters go but will be under new leadership as they have brought in a new coach. Over the last few years the program has taken major steps in the right direction and should have the opportunity to make some noise.

Prospects to watch: Riley Adams & EJ Bethea have both picked up D2 offers this summer and are looking to improve their stock as seniors. Adams will still more time at the PG spot while Bethea will use his ability to score the ball from the SG position.
