Oozing with Upside: 6’7 ’26 Tre Raymon

After an exciting showdown (and victory) against Team Curry in the championship of our G3 Showcase, there were certainly a lot of buzz surrounding Team Charlotte. Their 17U had a slew of guys who were major difference-makers in this contest. However, it seems like a lot of attention should also be directed at numerous pieces within their younger rosters. The program is known for producing...

Dawkins’ Standouts from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 3)

By; DeAjai Dawkins 2024 Austin Swartz (Team Charlotte) It’s amazing to think that Swartz has two remaining years of high school basketball. I don’t think I’ve seen a sophomore scorer with Swartz’s 6’4 frame that can put the ball in the basket like he can. Swartz embodies the impact that a true dynamic shooter brings to a team. His shot-making capabilities have reached a level where defenders...

Noah’s Hoopers from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 3)

By: Noah Hooper 5’10 2025 Kamari Cooke (Team Charlotte 15U)After watching Cooke this weekend I have come to the conclusion that this kid is a certified bucket getter. Throughout his games and especially this morning, Cooke was phenomenal at using his quickness to get to his spots and hit shots. He also has a lot of wiggle to his game which allows him to catch defenders off guard and wonder what...

Phenom G3 Showcase Standouts (Day 3)

By: Malcolm Morgan 2024 Jaylon Hoover (Hoop Dreams) This kid was impressive in today’s performance. I loved the composure about him and the way that he handled pressure. It was like nothing was going to speed him up. He has a quick change of speed and an elusive handle. He made great decisions with the ball and also finished strong at the rim. Has a nice jumper from deep and hit shots with...

Phenom Standouts from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 3)

By: Nicolas Chapman 2025 Landon Shirk (15u Tennessee impact) When watching Tennessee Impact play in their tournament, number 24 stood out to me with his shifty play and crafty layup package. Landon Shirk plays with confidence and knows that he can take over and win a game down the stretch. He’s almost unblockable at the rim with the way he twists his body and arms to become out of his...

Player Standouts at Day Three of Phenom G3 Showcase

5’9 ’25 Gavin Fields (Carolina Charge) Though slightly undersized, it was easy to be impressed with Fields during his first showing of the day. He’s a blindingly quick lead guard with nice IQ and the ability to touch the paint at a seemingly nonstop rate. Fields finishes well, especially for his size, but also hits jumpers and creates well for himself and others. He’s a relentless defender with...

Dawkins’ Standouts: Phenom G3 Showcase (Part 2)

By; DeAjai Dawkins 2023 Avion Pinner (Team Curry) Avion Pinner has consistently impressed me when I’ve watched him play, but it is not for his high flying ability or overall versatility. Pinner’s ability to impact the game on the defensive end specifically is an incredibly special skill. Aside from moving his feet well, Pinner shows solid timing when protecting the rim and gives opposing scorers...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 2, Afternoon)

2025 Sadiq White (Team United): The progression that we have seen over the last year with White has been impressive and has to get you even more excited about the future for this young prospect.  He has great size at 6’7, runs the floor extremely well, is fluid and finish at the rim, can guard and play multiple positions, and his offensive game continues to expand as well as his confidence...

Noah’s Hoopers from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 2, Afternoon)

By: Noah Hooper 6’0 2024 Jordan Vick (Team Trezz Edwards)Vick really impressed me as he put the team on his back this afternoon in a close game against Carolina Pressure. Throughout the Contest Jordan shot the ball extremely well and he also showcased his sneaky athleticism as he caught my eye with a poster slam. Moreover, he played under control and made the right decisions which will take him...

Dawkins’ Standouts: Phenom G3 Showcase (Part 1)

By; DeAjai Dawkins 2025 Larry Davis (CSB Select ‘25-‘24)  Larry is an obvious talent at the lead guard spot, despite playing with a certain level of reservation at times. He did a great job at showing an ability to knock down perimeter jumpers, as well as use his quickness to get into the lane. He has a solid handle that could be improved upon over time. Someone who does not let his size deter...

Player Standouts: Day 2 (Afternoon) Phenom G3 Showcase

By: Nicholas Chapman 2025 Sadiq White (15u Team United) A team that a lot of people were excited to watch today was Team United’s 15u squad. And one of the players that created a lot of that hype is 6’6” forward Sadiq White. He is insanely athletic, making highlight plays every time he touches the ball. He overpowers the defense in the way he drives to the hole to get a bucket. He’s a great...

Player Standouts from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 2, Afternoon)

By: Malcolm Morgan 2023 AJ Hewitt (PSB Select) I enjoyed watching this kid play today. Has great footwork in the paint, took smart shots, and hauled in a lot of rebounds. Very high IQ player and used his body very well. He also has a soft touch from the mid range free throw line area and really just had an impressive overall day. He never really got sped up and just stayed aggressive all game...

Player Standouts at Day Two of Phenom G3 Showcase

6’5 ’23 Bryce Cash (Team Curry) There are so many quality pieces within this talented Team Curry group, but Cash is quietly as valuable as anyone on the roster. We’ve seen him shine as an undisputed leader on plenty of occasions, but there’s something particularly impressive about his ability to produce within a role. Cash is a smart, strong, athletic guard with excellent toughness, defensive...
