2024 Mason Smith (TCF Wildcats): Smith has been a name that has popped up quite a bit over the last year and still believe that he should be getting more attention. He has tremendous size, can operate from multiple levels, and can be a terrific weapon in his ability to step out and knock down multiple threes. Can be a big-time weapon on the floor with his perimeter shooting at his size.
2023 Jacob Tiller (Team Swish): You know what you are going to get when you watch Tiller in action… he is one that has a strong skillset, plays hard and with a chip on his shoulder, and is certainly bouncy with his game. Tiller has the capability of scoring from all levels and really putting on a show to lead his team. Another strong showing from the senior guard.
2025 Zeus Batts (WBC): It was a great way to end the day for Batts (along with his teammate Rodmik Allen). But Batts really took over in the second half, scoring nearly all of his points and helping put his team on his back. Batts was simply tough and didn’t let anyone stop him, knocking down shots from outside, making plays off the bounce, and just being that assertive guard on the court. Played extremely well to end the day.
2024 Brent Thompson (BWSL TMB): What a showing the young man had to end his day on Day 2 at the Phenom Rise Showcase. Thompson was simply off the charges in leading his team to a victory, finishing with 32 points and absolutely filling it. Thompson was knocking down shots all over the court, showing his tremendous range with 7 3-pointers btu also finishing strong plays off the bounce. It was one of the better showings of the day.
2023 Emmanuel Black (Big Shots Elite NC): Black has been a productive piece all weekend long for his team. When you talk about his game, he is one of those guys that just brings production, as he stays active on the boards, has strong instincts in second-chance opportunities, and runs the floor really well. Overall, he is just a great piece for this team, and has really been a strong piece all around the basket at the event.
