Phenom High School Jamboree Showcase
Carolina Day
Head Coach: David Robinson

Last season, Carolina Day finished with a 11-11 record. They play in the NCISAA classification and their schedule was extremely tough and competitive. Coach Robinson is in his first season at Carolina Day and he hopes to improve upon the .500 record last season. Like the 2016-17 season, Carolina Day once again has a challenging and extremely tough schedule. Carolina opens up its season at the Phenom High School Jamboree and then jumps into action against the likes of Carmel Christian, Spartanburg Day, Asheville Christian, Rabun Gap and Christ School. This season, Coach Robinson has a nice blend of youth and season veterans. With three scrimmage games at the Phenom Jamboree, Coach Robinson will get a great idea of what to expect for the 2017-18 season. Now, let's take a closer look at some of the impact players for Carolina Day.

6'1 '18 Tai Giger

Tai Giger has excellent versatility and an advanced skill set. He had an impressive 2016-17 campaign for Carolina Day as he made the NCISAA CAA All Conference. In addition, Tai led the team in scoring and displayed leadership. We have always been impressed with his basketball IQ and overall feel for the game. Coach David Robinson stated, 'Tai is one of the better shooting point guard in the conference. He looks to create for his teammates as well as looking to score the crucial crunch time basket and will look to use his frame to take the defender off the dribble.' Tai is getting serious interest from various D1 and D2 schools and will be looked upon to lead the team on and off the court.

 

6'2 '20 Lee Langstaff

Lee Langstaff is blessed with excellent athleticism. He has good length and uses his speed exceptionally well especially in the open court. Lee has the ability to take his opponent off the dribble where he can finish at the rim or utilize his midrange pull up jumper. Coach Robinson stated, 'Lee has a smooth jump shot. His frame and body suggest he is still looking to grown which would allow his game to branch out even more. Lee is really gifted on the defensive end of the court. Using his length, wingspan, and athleticism, Lee will lead the team in steals and will be on the receiving end of some nice dunks. Currently, Lee has gotten interest from the University of Houston. Don't be surprised if Lee ends up becoming a big-name prospect around Western North Carolina in years to come.'

6'4 '19 D'Angelo Elliot

Strength and toughness is D'Angelo Elliott's calling card. He has good range and can score from multiple spots on the court. Coach Robinson stated, 'D'Angelo will be a vital piece to the success of the team this season. He has the frame to punish smaller guards and quickness allows him to take bigger defenders off the dribble. He will be a 'do it all' type player, whether is rebounding or scoring. Known as 'D-Lo,' he will take on the challenge to be a leader and do what is best for the team. He played for Team Vision this past summer so expect him to garner more and more collegiate interest due to his overall skill set as he continues to improve day by day.'

 

6'0 '19 Navante Johnson

Navante Johnson has made his mark equally on both ends of the court. He has good versatility and is a willing defender. As a matter of fact, Coach Robinson stated, 'Navante takes it upon himself to guard and shut down the opponent's best player. He plays much bigger than his listed height since he has terrific speed and agility.'
