NC Phenom 150 Camp Recap (Session I)

High School: Top Performer- 6’6 ’24 Tyler Showalter (Butler) The versatile two-way forward was easily the most consistently productive performer throughout the event. Showalter secured the MVP award by playing hard, unselfishly dictating the action as the offensive focal point, and establishing his presence as a defender and rebounder.

Start noticing more of: Coach Rick’s TOC (Class of 2024)

2024 Jayden Pretty (Carolina Pressure): Pretty was consistent all week long in Rock Hill, as the 6’6 prospect from Carolina Pressure really opened eyes in how big of a difference-maker he could be.  It seemed like the forward had his hands in everything, finding ways to get his hands on the ball, always moving well without the ball, displaying a tremendous motor in the paint and on the boards,...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Coach Rick’s TOC (Session 2, Day 1, Part 2)

2024 Keenan Wilkins (Charlotte Royals): Wilkins certainly did turn it up a notch in the second half, as he scored 21 of his 24 points to lead his team to a victory.  The quick guard made timely plays, especially off the dribble, and used his speed to get by defenders and finish with touch around the basket, but also continue to show his unlimited range with his jumper.  A 2024 guard that really...

BSA Supreme: Even Better Than Before?

The grassroots landscape has gradually (not entirely) drifted away from the competitive balance between independent programs and the primary circuit teams. While it’s still evident, we would be naïve to think that the current scene is comparable to that of three or five years ago. Regardless, BSA Supreme (formerly CC Elite) has maintained their status as a premier independent program and a squad...
