Phenom Hoops traveled to Winston-Salem to check in at Calvary Day, as they welcomed in Covenant Day on Tuesday night. As the ball tipped off, it was Covenant Day that came out strong and built an early 12-0 lead behind the play of Aden Holloway. Calvary Day was able to get on the board eventually and get it down to single didigts for a little bit of time but Covenant Day continued to attack, using the guard play and bigs to showcase a balanced attack. It eventually helped them double-up before halftime and lead 43-19 after two quarters.
Covenant Day’s offense couldn’t be slowed down in the second half, as they were able to eventually build their lead to 30+ and never looked back, winning 90-63 in the end.
Covenant Day: Aden Holloway 31 points, Daniel Nelson 14 points, Michael Marcus 14 points
Calvary Day: James Wilkins 19 points, Owen Gulledge 10 points, Zech Gibson 10 points
2023 Aden Holloway (Covenant Day): The sophomore guard was sensational, leading the charge and initiating the offense. Holloway’s skillset with the ball in his hands is high level, showcasing his ability to change direction and pace on a dime, putting his defenders in spin-cycles, while also showing that he can score at all levels. He attacked off the dribble, finishing through defenders, but also displayed his range on multiple occasions. He played big-time ball to start the season.
2023 Jahmir Brown (Covenant Day): Brown was able to score the ball in transition well, finishing through contact and getting to the line. He also provided another ball-handler on the floor, attacking defenses. But what really captured our eyes is what he provides on the defensive end, locking up opponents on multiple occasions.
2022 Daniel Nelson was strong inside and out, knocking down shots, being active on the floor, and getting on the boards. Was also impressed with 2024 Michael Marcus, as the young big showed impressive touch around the rim on his way to 14 points.
2022 James Wilkins (Calvary Day): Wilkins was the most consistent scoring threat for Calvary Day, as he led the charge on offense, was able to penetrate the gaps, and either show touch on getting the ball on the rim or kick it out to an open teammate for a shot.
