After an entertaining day of basketball on Friday afternoon in Raleigh, we are ready to roll for Day 2 of the Phenom National Showcase at Ravenscroft high school.  Phenom Hoops continues to provide the best coverage around and if you, unfortunately, missed the action today, here is your game recap from the day.

Game Report:

First Half

It was a close matchup in the first quarter between these two teams, as the outside game started flowing for Concord First Assembly while Liberty Heights found success attacking and finishing at the rim.  Concord was able to claim a 6-point lead midway through the second quarter but Liberty Heights finished the quarter strong, claiming a 5-point lead at the half.  Dominique Davis was a bull down low in the paint, finishing through contact on his way to 12 first-half points, while Kahari Rogers chipped in 8.  Trae Benham led Concord First Assembly with 8 points, while Isaac Boothe and Javian Cannady both had 7.
