2021 6’3 DeVante Patterson (Sharp Shooters Elite): Patterson has good size at 6’3 and stayed aggressive all throughout the contest. Scoring from all around inside the arc as well as getting to the free-throw line on multiple occasions, he stepped up big offensively for his team.
2021 6’6 Jacob Morgan (Carolina Riptide): Morgan is one that has been gaining attention with his game, as he creates a lot of trouble with his ability to score on multiple levels. He consistently is moving all around the court, finding those holes in the defense and creates a mismatch with his scoring ability on all three levels.
2022 6’0 Davion Cunningham (Team Charlotte 16u): Cunningham is going to be a name to start jumping on. He really excels in the open court, pushing the pace and running north and south. He not only can light it up and put points on the board but is also showing his vision in transition and decision-making.
2022 6’7 Jeremy Gregory (Team Charlotte 16u): You have to like the improvement Gregory has made of the years. But the biggest factor you see with his game is his improvement mobility on both ends but his hands, getting on the boards but also showing fantastic soft touch around the rim and with his mid-range shot.
2022 6’6 Daniel Sanford (Team Charlotte 16u): Sanford really impressed us with his physical play on both ends. He just gets after it and attacks the rim hard, finishing through defenders. He continues to get better each time we see him and on Day 1, he was an impact on both ends.
2022 Sincere Pearson (Carolina Pressure 16u): Pearson did all he could to keep his team in the game. Pearson’s ability to attack, get downhill but also show IQ of when to pull-up was noticeable. He was aggressive when getting to the lanes and creating off the dribble.
2022 Mike Henderson (Carolina Pressure 16u): A small guard but a crafty one with the ball in his hands. Henderson showed tremendous control and change of direction in the open court, getting defenders going either direction. Loved how he created separation.
2022 Chris Rhone (Carolina Pressure 16u): Rhone fits the mold when you first look at him. He has tremendous athleticism with his game, he slashes to the basket and is able to create off the dribble. Competitor on the floor.
