STAY POSITIVE CLASSIC EVENT RECAPS

What Was Said: Phenom Challenge (FCDS, Day 1)

6’1 2024 Coleman Lawton (Winston 76ers) played extremely well tonight. Finished with 19 points. Has a great feel for the game. Crafty, shifty guard who can create off the bounce.

Player Standouts from Phenom Summer Showcase (Day 1)

By: Heath Gulledge 2025 6’0 Jamel Floyd (Va Havoc Roa) Floyd put on a really impressive showing in the 8 am game that I saw.
