2027 Travien Williams (Hickory Ridge): Another young freshman for this program, as they have some intriguing building blocks to work with down the road, Williams was able to create and make several plays off the bounce. Attacked and got into the defense, finished strong, and was consistently active throughout the game. He will be another one to watch.
2024 Xavier Perry (VCCS): Perry has had an eye-opening tournament, as he has put on a show and has been one of the best players at the event. Put on a show with 29 points to lead the charge, displaying pace, speed, shiftiness and creativity, and shot-making ability. Has had a very good week and should garner more attention.
2025 Cash McSweeney (Cardinal Gibbons): The skilled forward had a solid showing on Day 3, being active on the boards and active hands in being able to score the ball. Had chances to show his ability to finish with touch around the basket and with putbacks, as well as his comfort level in stepping out at times.
2027 Zaiyir Phillips (Hunter Huss): Phillips plays more like a veteran for this team than just a freshman, playing with such toughness on the court. He excels in creating and attacking, finding ways to score over or around defenders, as well as knock down shots. But it is his leadership on the court that impresses as a young prospect.
2024 Chicale Ward (Bull City Prep): Ward simply battled on the court and did the little things that ultimately helped his team secure a tough victory. Ward was able to make plays out in transition, finishing at the rim but also did a great job in never giving up on plays and attacking the boards, creating second-chance points for his team.
2025 Bryce Slay (Carmel Christian): Slay is such an intriguing prospect with his size and length, and he continues to flourish as a player who can hurt you in a variety of ways. Whether it is his ability to knock down shots from deep, showcase his change of speed in getting to the basket, or his vision in finding his teammates, Slay offers a lot on the court for his team.
2025 Kendall Salter (Carolina International): Salter played with energy and competed throughout his game. Though he was overmatched at times with size, he still competed hard on the boards and tried to impact the game in other ways, along with making those hustle plays offensively to help his team.
2024 Isaiah Sutherland (UFCA): A very good showing from the big man today, being active and engaged, showing his ability to be a threat in stretching the court but also use his athleticism to be strong down in the paint and on the boards. He nearly finished with a double-double in the win, but his overall presence from multiple areas was impressive.
2024 Douglas Adiok (Gaston Christian): Continue to love what Adiok does and provides to this team. He just comes in and makes the best of his presence, along with production. He plays so hard and physical down in the paint and on the boards, bullying defenders and finding ways to get his hands on the loose ball and off the boards, as well as showing touch in finishing putbacks.
2024 Kyrell Shaw (Northside Christian): Shaw really stepped up on Day 3 for his team, flying high at the rim and also knocking down shots from behind the arc as he finished with an impressive 28 points to lead his team. Such an underrated athlete that can score in so many ways, and has been playing at a high level.
