This past week I saw 42 different teams play at least once in four different events at:

at Deer Valley HS (8) for the Sunnyslope Hoopsgiving Basketball Tournament

at Mesa HS (16) for the Fear the Hop event

at Gilbert HS (8) for the Welcome to the Jungle event and 

at Paradise Honors (10) for the Panthers Hoop Classic


I viewed many outstanding performances, which I will put in future articles, but I want to quickly acknowledge my top-30.  THESE ARE NOT PROSPECT RANKINGS. 

This is just one single game and how well they performed when I viewed them in that one particular moment.

Some examples are Patton Jr scored 35 points in a crazy 4th qtr that they were down 20 and almost won. Calmese basically did the same exact thing the previous day and Ruiz recorded a triple double!
