POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom 757 Showcase (Day 1, Part 1)

2024 6’6 Joshua Randolph (All Carolina): Though it didn’t turn into a win, Randolph captured my eyes with his size and length as a 2024 prospect.  He certainly showed his range on Day 1, knocking down multiple threes for his team but with how young he is and his continuing development, he is one to monitor his progression. 2022 Caleb Hymon (Eastern Carolina Phenomz): Hymon and his team started...

Player Standouts at Phenom 757 Showcase

5’9 ’22 Jarius Northam (Team Wall) Though undersized, Northam’s status as a useful next-level player should already be quite obvious. He’s so tough, quick, and scrappy, which allows him to consistently bother and outwork opponents with his defensive presence. Northam forces turnovers, pushes the break in transition, and showed the ability to set up others or attack the basket with ease. He also...

Player Highlight: Phenom Summer Showcase

By: Sean Halloran 6’6 2024 Rakease Passmore (NLPB 828 15u) Passmore was voted as one of the top players during this weekend’s event and I couldn’t agree more! This young man is a stud. Versatile forward with great size and length. Uber athlete and plays above the rim consistently. An area of Passmore’s game that has shown much improvement in his perimeter shooting. He really displayed a great...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Day 2 at the Phenom Summer Showcase

2022 Austin Ball (WV Generals): Ball played really well on Day 2, scoring the ball effectively, whether it was rising from behind the arc or his mid-range shot, as well as using his 6’5 long frame to finish over defenders with a little bounce to his game. Ball is tremendously active, making those little plays, using his hands well to keep the ball active, and has a soft touch with his...

Player Standouts at Phenom Summer Showcase

6’3 ’24 Austin Swartz (CB Hoops) Although CB Hoops is fairly balanced as a group, Swartz was arguably their most reliable performer throughout their first contest of the day. Between his IQ, size, and well-rounded skillset, he understands how to consistently affect all facets of the game. Swartz displays a pretty advanced feel for his current age, and should only continue to get better with...

Player Standouts at Phenom Hoops’ Country Roads Holiday Invitational

5’7 ’22 Jesse Muncy (Tolsia) The tone-setting leadership of Muncy, an undersized but crafty, decisive point guard prospect largely controlled the opening contest. He handles the ball with poise, consistently looks to make the best available play, and asserts himself regularly as a penetrator or three-point threat. Muncy is a pretty steady offensive presence with flair, vision, and quickness off...
