Next up, we look at Team HUSL 2023, a program based out of Lake Wylie/ Rock Hill area. In talking with Coach Baker about his team, he breaks down his players and what they bring to the court.

Check out what was said and start tracking their names today.

2023 6’7 Nate Self (Clover HS)

2023 5’11 JJ Mata (Clover HS)
