Phenom Hoops tuned in to watch Trinity Academy and NRCA, an interesting game with new names.

They were able to maintain that lead heading into halftime as well, leading 34-19. Parker Bye continued his strong play in the second half for Trinity Academy to increase its lead after three. NRCA continued to battle and outscored Trinity 20-12 in the fourth, but this game was in hand overall, with Trinity Academy winning 62-51.
2025 Parker Bye (Trinity Academy): Really liked what I saw from the junior, as he started out strong with a few early threes, stretching the court and showing his confidence from behind the arc, but also was active on the boards, created second-chance opportunities, and scored around the basket as well. He nearly finished with a double-double with 15 points and 9 rebounds.
2025 Kamran Prince (Trinity Academy): Prince also had a solid showing before he had to go out of the game. But he has good size and playmaking ability, as he uses that to his advantage to stay active, create for others, get paint touches, but also find his teammates well for open shots.
2027 DJ West (Trinity Academy) is one to jot down and watch. He showed some good flashes in his game as a young prospect, and also the son of David West. He hit multiple threes and wears a size 14 shoe already at a young age. Eager to see how he grows and develops with his background. 2026 Owen Tucker also had a strong showing, going for 15 points to lead his team, got to his spots, and created well. He continues to flourish as a young prospect to watch.
2027 Caiden Jenkins (NRCA): This is a young prospect that I would have on my radar now and see how he continues to develop as a prospect overall. Love his blend of size, his ability to create, get to his spots, and his offensive mindset on the court. Creates well off the dribble and makes plays in a variety of ways. He is one that has a chance to be strong early on as a freshman and get on several radars early.
2027 Brennen Jefferson (NRCA): Another young prospect for this team, Jefferson led the team in scoring with 17 points, getting to the line on several occasions, battling and being active around the basket, and finding ways to finish well.
