Galvani’s Standouts from Day 2 at Phenom MDC

By: Lauren Galvani 2022 6’7 Jeremy Dixon (Team EAT 17u) Ultimate team-first player! Aggressive and physical wing who is explosive in the open court. Did a good job of rebounding the ball and was able to go coast to coast on multiple occasions. Jeremy is a 3 level scorer and while he has a knack for scoring the ball, he did a great job of finding his open teammates. Good use of both hands...

2023 Hasanur Friedman (G5 Elite): Friedman is a new name to the scene for us but the guard showed tremendous ability to create for himself off the dribble.

POB’s Eye Catchers: Phenom Grassroots TOC (Day 1)

2021 Peyton Gerald (Ace Elite) – You have to like what a 6’8 mobile and athletic forward can bring to the table.  With Gerald he brings that and more.  He has a nice feel down in the post and uses his length well, but also can create for himself and does a tremendous job in getting at the rim and on the boards. Strong first day for this unsigned senior. 2022 Reggie Bass (Team Teague):...
