POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom Team Camp (Day 2)

2023 Jordan Butler (Christ Church): Butler came in as one of the top players at the event and has shown why all throughout, as he may be the most difficult matchup on the floor.

Player Standouts at Phenom Team Camp

6’1 ’23 Kobe Parker (Ragsdale) Although they lost multiple key pieces, Ragsdale should still be one of the more competitive programs in Greensboro behind the leadership of Parker. He’s clearly the focal point of this group, but understands how to dictate the action in a poised, unselfish, methodical manner. Parker has maintained his status as a lethal perimeter shooter, especially from beyond...

Evening Standouts at Phenom’s Palmetto Winter Classic

Morgan County: 5’8 ’19 Stevin Greene Though small, the point guard prospect was one of the most exciting players to take the floor thus far. He’s an incredibly polished scorer with the ability to generate a clean look out of thin air, especially given his sharp handle and overall quickness.
