The first ever Veterans Day Preseason Showcase will take place on November 9th in Fayetteville, NC with the 6 teams matching up for some good scrimmages. Each team has a different story and a different desire for the upcoming season which should set us up for some really nice matchups so let’s take a look.
Village Christian vs Wakefield HS @ 5PM: This game should be a good one as both teams come in with plenty of experience and college prospects. Don’t be surprised to see both teams go on their own set of runs and for this game to be super competitive, both of these teams should have a chance to compete deep into their state playoffs.
VCA features 2019 Guard Travion McCray who is a MM caliber prospect who is the reigning conference player of the year and will be looking to do damage this season as well as 2020 Guard Zavian McLean who is picking up interest from D1 programs. Mclean is an athletic player that can score the ball in bunches, he plays with a high motor every night. 2020 Guard Justin Thomas will be on plenty of radars in not time, and 2019 Forward Derrick Quansah has already picked up offers from numerous D1 programs. The Knights also have some young talent in 2022 Guard Zy Mclean who is coming into his own and 2021 Guard Jaquay McMillian should have a nice impact for them as well as he transferred in from out of town.
Wakefield HS has a nice amount of college prospects as well and one in particular that we like is 2019 Guard Elijah Shabazz he can score the ball well but doesn’t look to score first, instead he gets his teammates going by making good passes, once he shows that he can knock down outside shots with consistency, he will be a player that will see his stock rise. 2019 Wing Trae Smith is another player we like from this Wakefield team, rebounding and scoring are attributes that he shows consistently. He’s productive and efficient, making the most out of each touch that he gets. Rounding out the group is 2019 F/C Kharye Cayne who is 6’8 with long arms and nice upside, and plenty to like about what he can bring to the table. He makes plays primarily on the defensive end of the court, using his length and height to block shots.
