The sidelines are filled with NCAA compliant scouts and nationally read media as they know the storylines are always great at Phenom events.
For the previous three years Phenom Hoops held this event at Millbrook High School in Raleigh, North Carolina. Players such as Dennis Smith Jr (Dallas Mavs), Chris Clemons (NCAA 2nd Leading Scorer) and many others have participated in this event. This year we felt it was time to move the event to talent rich Columbia, South Carolina.

Going through the players there are numerous Top 150 type guys throughout the classes. Some of the top teams from around the region with incredible coaches throughout the state. South Carolina is also a basketball hungry state. The state knows when there is good talent around, they have to show up and watch.
Phenom’s Capital City Jam is filled with talent, both team and individual. Here is the reason why THIS Saturday (December 16) the state of South Carolina needs to stop what they are doing and show up to Ben Lippen School in Columbia and watch this incredible display of talent.

Hannibal is a strong, tough and explosive lead guard. He plays with a great pace and showcases excellent floor vision and IQ as he navigates his way through the paint. He is also incredibly explosive as he gets out in transition or knifes through the defense looking to finish high above the rim and on someone’s head.

Graham has been a high scoring leader of Nation Ford for a couple years now. Playing in South Carolina’s largest classification, 5A, so far this season he is averaging 20 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds and 4 steals per game.
