Must Watch Matchups (Part 1)
Phenom’s 5th Annual National High School Showcase
November 16-17 at Greensboro Day in Greensboro, NC
Trae Hannibal Vs. Shakeel Moore
Hartsville (SC) Vs. Piedmont Classical (NC)
6:30 PM on Saturday, November 17
Hannibal is a Top 150 type prospect, in the 2019 class, who is committed to the University of South Carolina. Moore is a Top 150 type prospect, in the 2020 class, who has picked up recent offers from Providence and East Carolina.
What you want to watch for here is pure and simple fireworks. Both of these guards are stocky and compact with incredible explosion. Moore was the dunk contest winner at the North Carolina Top 80, doing a dunk where he jumped over his teammate’s head, as his teammate propped the ball up and Moore slammed it home with authority.
Hannibal is an explosive, triple double threat, in his own right. He brought the gym down at last year’s Phenom’s Capital City Classic, as he throw the ball off the backboard to himself (in game) and finished on top of an opposing player. The crowd went crazy.
Both of these players will be highly motivated to show out. Hannibal missed all of July with an injury, so he was out of the public eye. Moore is right on the verge of breaking out and a good showing here will boost him into the national rankings and probable offers.
The crowd is sure to go crazy multiple times in this one. These two guards bring everything that fans want to see and they do it with incredible bravado. The two players will be motivated and for that, the fans will be seeing something special and incredibly exciting.
