2024 6’8 Richard Goods (Carolina Clutch): Well look at it here, ’24 Richard Goods makes another standout list.  In this game, there just wasn’t anyone that could match the physicality that he brought to the floor, carving out space in the paint, finishing through defenders, and attacking the glass once again.  What continues to impress is his ability to step out and be a threat as well.

2023 6’3 Parker Hodgson (Dream Big Elite): Dream Big Elite has been rolling through the tournament and early on Day 2, it was once again the 6’3 guard that continues to show how effective he can be as a shooter on the court.  Hodgson plays under control and picks his spots well, really not forcing anything but also making the defense pay with his perimeter game.  The young man has really played well all spring long and it has continued here at the Phenom Challenge.

2022 6’4 Isaac Johnson (Grindhouse Lakers): Johnson really gave people a glimpse of his two-way ability, showing his explosiveness and ability to score from an array of levels on the court but also making some big-time plays on the defensive end, including some strong blocks.  Johnson never let up on the floor, playing with a great motor that ultimately helped lead his team to a victory.

2024 6’2 Quamir Ingram (NLPB 336): Ingram put on a scoring clinic mid-way through the day, going for 34 points and doing in all sorts of ways.  Whether it was knocking down shots from the perimeter, putting it on the floor and creating, or getting to the line, Ingram showed how effective of a scorer he can be on the court. He couldn’t be stopped all game long.

2023 Julius Harrison (NL Disciples): It will be interesting to see who all continues to get involved with Harrison, especially with his production on the floor. With his long size, his athleticism, and versatility, Harrison really fills it up in a variety of ways.  Whether it is scoring, rebounding, defending… Harrison makes his impact felt.

2022 Mikhail Pocknett (WBC Elite Aria Paris): He May have had one of the top performances of the day because he simply couldn’t be stopped.  He did whatever he wanted and there wasn’t a defender that could slow him down. Time after time, he was getting downhill, creating for himself, and finishing through contact.  Pocknett was ALL OVER the place scoring-wise and on the boards; very strong showing from the senior.

2025 Hayes Oxendine (Go Hard): Oxendine continues to rise up in my books. No matter what level or who he is playing with, the young man has only produced.  He continues to play with a ton of confidence, displaying a terrific IQ, decision-making, and ability to be a knockdown shooter.  Such a fluid guard that continues to evolve his game and add more pieces.

2022 Tyson Bombick (NLPB 803): The unsigned senior really stepped up for his team. When you watch Bombick, he is always the one doing the dirty work and making winning plays.  Today though, he showed a little bit more of his offensive game, knocking down five threes while playing unselfish, winning basketball.
