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.
Oak Hill returned for another night of basketball, while Grace Christian came in as the underdog looking for an upset.
