Player: Manny Pringle
AAU: Team 803
The Phenom G3 Showcase was a tremendous success this past weekend in Rock Hill. We got to see a lot of familiar faces on the court but it also gave us a glimpse of a few underrated players as well as new young faces that should be ones to watch.
One player that played really well this weekend was 2024 Manny Pringle from Team 803 2k24. He was a consistent throughout the event, as the young guard posted games of 15, 19, and 11 for his team. But when you watch his game, you have to see how smooth this young man plays the game. Pringle is an effective scorer, whether it was off the bounce or in catch and shoot situations.
When speaking with more Team 803 Elite coach Zyrique Bradford, he gave us a little more info into the young guard’s game:
“He’s a hidden, underrated gem,” he replied. “Works very hard every day to add different pieces to his game. Very special seeing him attack guards with his deadly handles, attacking downhill, and change up of speed into his three-point shot. He shoots the three-ball very efficiently and very versatile; he can play either point position, shooting guard, or I’ll run him at the wing. The thing that makes Manny so dangerous is his versatile play style. His opponents don’t know what is coming because his skill set is so high. He rebounds at a high rate for a guard; averaged about six rebounds, five assists this past weekend (at the Phenom G3 Showcase), along with about 15 points per game.
