6’3 ’22 Jalonte Edwards (Team Winston)
Despite being short-handed, this Team Winston group has been incredibly competitive/resilient throughout the weekend and Edwards has been at the forefront of their success. He’s not flashy, but he’s undeniably effective on both ends of the floor. Edwards plays extremely hard and consistently does the dirty work for this team. His ability to secure rebounds and score around the basket is also extremely valuable.
6’3 ’22 Franklin Stockton (Greensboro Warriors)
The long, mobile, rim-protector was the lone interior presence for this Greensboro Warriors squad. Stockton knows how to disrupt opponents around the basket through quality positioning and athleticism. He scored well without forcing the action and accumulated a ton of blocks from the weak-side and in transition.
6’0 ’20 Jajuan Carr (WBC Elite)
At this point, it’s impossible to be anything other than impressed with Carr’s all-around game and unparalleled consistency. He is arguably the smartest, most disciplined point guard in the state. Carr scores efficiently from all three levels, but his ability to effortlessly attack the paint and finish, get fouled, or make plays for others is what makes him special. His recruitment simply does not reflect his talent level, as he’s deserving of many more offers.
6’5 ’19 Dashaun Ballard (Greensboro Warriors Unsigned)
The Greensboro Warriors Unsigned Seniors group has continually gotten better over the court of the summer, and the addition of Ballard has certainly helped with that. He’s a strong-bodied forward/post prospect that did an excellent job of asserting himself as an inside-out scorer during this contest. Ballard plays with aggression on both ends and fights extremely hard for rebounds on both ends.
6’2 ’20 Noah Hooper (Charlotte Aces)
While Dubar will draw many of the headlines, Hooper was incredibly vital to their narrow victory over Team Trezz. He shoots the ball well and is capable of finishing through contact, but also consistently stands out with his defensive presence and ability to make plays without requiring offensive touches. Hooper drew multiple charges and was all over the boards in this one.
6’5 ’20 Linwood Grandy (Team Trezz)
Team Trezz is certainly among the most talented teams in attendance and this contest featured an exceptional showing from Grandy. He’s not known for his shooting, but he knocked down four three-pointers and still applied phenomenal pressure as a downhill penetrator. Grandy defends and rebounds well for his position while utilizing his body on both ends of the floor.
