2021 Tommy Moore (Bull City Prep): He was incredibly aggressive and put pressure on the defense, attacking and penetrating into the lane and really making his mark at the foul line. He brought a good motor and never let up, as he created trouble for Believe Prep all throughout the game.
2020 James Munlyn (Believe Prep): As a 7’0, he automatically catches your attention but the big man really helped anchor down low in the paint and showed good touch around the rim. Showcased a nice jump hook and soft touch all throughout the game.
2021 Yahsheem Kendrick (Bull City Prep PG Charlotte): Kendrick played well in the first half, setting the tone for his team and knocking down shots from the perimeter. He also got after it on the defensive end, then turning it into points and finishing strong.
2020 Amharie Simpkin (Believe Prep): Simpkin passes the eye test with a 6’5 long frame but then he showed that he can really produce and score in several ways. Shows the ability to finish around the rim, along with some athleticism, but also pop out. He can help create havoc with his length on the defensive end while also running the floor well.
