Atlanta, Georgia – The 5th Annual 2018 Holiday Hoopsgiving Showcase was a success and once again featuring some of the top prospects around the state and also around the country. This year’s event setting was fantastic and looked absolutely amazing. Two days full of hoops non-stop and it was certainly worth it. There was a plethora of talent on hand along with plenty of college coaches in attendance as well. Below you will find out who stood out in this year’s event.
Note: Part 1 of 3
2021 SG Chance Moore – Holy Innocents School
Talk about a coming out party. Sophomore Chance Moore had an amazing outing at this year’s Holiday Hoopsgiving Showcase. Playing for the host school Holy Innocents, Moore was able to show why he deserved some recognition from college scouts and coaches. In the two days playing in this event, the 6-foot-5 guard averaged 25.5 points per game, including a 30 point performance in day one. After his coming out party, Chance received offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Xavier, and Clemson in the last two days. He is an nice playmaker and is a elite scorer.
2021 F Robbie Armbrester – Therrell High School
Robbie Armbrester might have had the best motor out of all the prospects in Atlanta this week. His matchup against Chance Moore and Holy Innocents, Robbie had a monster game after finishing with 30 points and 15 rebounds. He is an under sized three/four for now but the kid has a high motor and competes on both sides of the ball. Robbie is effective on the glass on both ends of the floor and has a strong body which helps him down low.
2020 W Eugene Brown III – Southwest Dekalb High School
Eugene hit some national spotlight in Southwest Dekalb’s lone game this past weekend against Norcross High School and where Southwest Dekalb was able to pull the upset. Brown III was going up against his former AAU teammate in Brandon Boston Jr. and he certainly took advantage of the contest. Eugene finished the game with 25 points while knocking down seven three pointers. The 6-foot-6 wing was bound to earn some attention as the season progressed and that performance earned him an offer from Xavier. Eugene is a solid wing on offense but is very efficient on the defensive side of the ball.
2019 SG Marvin “Tre” Williams III – Wasatch Academy (UT)
The Tigers flew across country for their business trip and spent their Thanksgiving week in Atlanta. Minnesota signee Marvin “Tre” Williams III headlined their squad this weekend after a great two day performance and leading Wasatch Academy to a 2-0 record. Williams III is a competitive athlete with a nice frame at the two-guard position. He was able to show he can score in bunches and in transition and in the halfcourt offense. Marvin averaged 20.5 points per game in his two days in Atlanta.
2019 F Jalyn McCreary – Legacy Charter (SC)
Georgia native Jalyn McCreary had a solid visit back home with his new Legacy Charter (SC) squad. McCreary averaged 19.0 points per game in his time back in Atlanta. He is a versatile forward sitting at 6-foot-7 and not afraid to play down low with the big boys. McCreary has always been best when he is around the rim. He holds a soft touch and uses his athleticism to finish at times giving us some powerful and athletic dunks.
