Just because the LIVE period is over in April, doesn't mean that Phenom Hoops is stopping their coverage, as we are bringing you a ton of post-event coverage as well throughout the coming weeks. Let's dive into a few players and teams that we saw at the event, as we shed light on players that performed well throughout.

2024 6'4 Jaylen Sturdivant ' Sturdivant is a player I have spoken about before, and I still believe he is one that should be garnering more attention.' He has the size that you like, he is one that makes plays for himself and others, can get to the basket, and also knock down jumpers from a variety of levels. Sturdivant can be efficient from three or mid-range, rebounds the ball well, and also creates well in getting paint touches and to the rim.
2024 6'1 Salah Sutton ' Sutton is another player that has seen his stock rise a bit, as the 6'1 guard continues to show his ability to knock down shots at a high clip.' He had a strong high school season and has only continued that this summer so far.' He shoots the ball really well with a ton of confidence and a fluid release, but he can mix it up with how crafty he can be, moving without the ball, and finding ways to create opportunities for himself.
2024 6'6 Nehemiah McDonald was a wing that really helps completes the team; he can stretch the floor, is willing to defend, rebound, and understands his role on the court. But he also stepped up offensively in many areas. 2023 Carnelius Manning, 2023 Malachi McLean, and 2024 Chase Evans also stepped up in key situations throughout the weekend.
