POB’s Eye Catchers: Phenom MDC (Day 2, Part 2)

2022 Tariq Shabazz (Palmetto Elite): Shabazz had a strong Day 2 in Rock Hill, as he played with a natural feel but was excellent in transition.  Getting the ball and going is where he excelled, running out in transition, getting downhill, making strong plays, and finishing around the basket.  But don’t let that fool you because you have to respect his outside game as well, showing his...

Dawkins’ Standouts from Day 2 at Phenom MDC (Part 2)

By; DeAjai Dawkins 6’0 2023 Caleb Senyo (NLPB 803)  Caleb has built a reputation of one of the more consistent, tough guards in his class. He’s become known in my eyes for challenging top guards and facilitating at a high level. His court vision has been remarkable, now he’s starting to really expand his scoring capabilities altogether. He’s just as defensively focused as he was this previous...

Dawkins’ Standouts from Day 2 at Phenom MDC (Part 1)

By; DeAjai Dawkins 6’6 2025 Hayden Assemian (Upward Stars 15U Fagan)  Hayden is an impressive big man prospect with good hands and a soft touch around the rim. He rebounds at a high level and has shown the ability to score with an array of low-post moves. Hayden is a tough cover for a defender in general, especially one giving up size. I expect Hayden to experience a very successful high school...

Player Standouts From Phenom MDC (Day 2, Morning)

By: Heath Gulledge 2027 Colt Fowler (Upward Stars Fowler) He might not be the biggest guy on the court but he sure plays like it. Fowler is a crafty point guard with skill well beyond his years.

Fowler knows how to get crafty in the...

Player Standouts at Day Two of Phenom Memorial Day Classic

5’11 ’22 Jordan Marsh (PSB Larkin) There’s an abundance of talent within the PSB Larkin squad, and Marsh is as valuable as anyone.
