Prep Hoops takes a look at some 2021 Palmetto State members who played last week at the Beach Ball Classic. This past season due to the Covid-19 Pandemic saw more Palmetto State teams than ever before. The Beach Ball Classic had 7 teams in this past years event.
Chase McDuffie Chase McDuffie 6'5" | SG Gray Collegiate | 2021 State SC - Gray Collegiate (pictured on front)
McDuffie and the War Eagles finished the event at (2-2) this season. McDuffie a North Carolina A&T signee has great size out on the wing and can knockdown shots on the perimeter. McDuffie moves well without the ball on the floor and is always shot ready to receive it. McDuffie has a quick shot release and always seems to be around the ball.
Timothy Barnes Timothy Barnes 6'2" | CG Gray Collegiate | 2021 State SC - Gray Collegiate
Barnes will be headed to the Midwest next season to play at UMKC. Barnes a ultra-athletic guard is a quick leaper and really likes to stalk the baseline. Barnes keeps on improving every time out watching him play. Barnes excels in the transition game and in the passing lanes.
Javi Marlowe Javi Marlowe 6'1" | PG North Myrtle Beach | 2021 State SC - North Myrtle Beach HS Marlowe helped the Chiefs to a (2-2) record in the Beach Ball Classic. Marlowe does all the little things to stuff a stat sheet every night. Marlowe recorded 19 steals in 4 games to move into 2nd place all-time on the Beach Ball Classic Steals list. Marlowe will take a charge on command at times just does all the little things to make your team to win games. Kymani Knox Kymani Knox 6'4" | PF North Myrtle Beach | 2021 State SC - North Myrtle Beach HS Knox was great all week long for the Chiefs in the paint. Knox a undersized post does all the blue collar work in the paint with posting up with his back to the basket. Knox finished around the cup especially 4 feet in. Knox is what he’s a effective post player that lacks size. Don’t be fooled by that because the kid does everything you tell him to do. Mike Herrin Mike Herrin 6'4" | CG Socastee | 2021 State SC - Socastee HS Herrin and the Braves finished the Beach Ball Classic at (1-3). Herrin a left-handed guard has the ability to create his own shot and make plays out on the perimeter. Herrin has a smooth looking stroke and the ability to knockdown shots in a hurry.
