Porter Gaud Holiday Classic Midday Standouts (Presented by Phenom Hoops)
There’s nothing like spending time in the historic city of Charleston, South Carolina and to make it even more enjoyable than to cover the Porter Gaud Holiday Classic presented by Phenom Hoop Report. Fort Dorchester (SC), Trinity Byrnes (SC), United Faith (NC), Greenville Charter (SC), Legacy Charter (SC), Village Christian (NC) Goose Creek (SC), Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach (SC), Porter Gaud (SC), and Liberty Heights (NC) all headline this event being held at the beautiful campus of Porter Gaud. Now, let’s take a closer look at some of our “Midday Standouts”
6’0 2020 Jordan Jones (Trinity Byrnes)
Jordan Jones is an excellent point guard who values the ball. He has good court vision, passer friendly instincts and does a tremendous job of making the pitch ahead pass. He is very deliberate and patient while directing the offense. While he is a lefty, Jones favors going to his right where he has the ability to connect on his midrange jumper off the dribble/bounce. In addition, Jones is a strong on ball defender with quick feet and active hands. Jones was named game MVP and finished with 18 points.

6’2 2020 Antoine Parker (Ft. Dorchester)
Antoine Parker is a long, slender and athletic guard that plays both ends of the court. We were impressed with his vocal leadership on the court, not to mention his activity on defense. Parker finished with 11 points and was name co-MVP and rightfully so. There are some players that just has a presence on the court and Parker did just that.
6’6 2020 Josh Massey (United Faith)
One thing is for certain, Josh Massey loves playing in events sponsored by Phenom Hoop Report. The long, slender and athletic wing is simply oozing with upside and potential. We’re talking about a highly skilled ball handler for his size/position along with excellent body control. When Greenville Charter was making a run in the fourth quarter, Josh Massey accelerated the gas and put an exclamation mark with a few thunderous drives/dunks. In addition, Massey did a lot positives on the defensive side of the ball. He rebounded and blocked shots and made one key play after another. Now, it’s just a matter of consistency. If Massey can put it all together, the sky’s the limit.
6’2 2020 Kavion Morris (Greenville Charter)
This was our first viewing of the lengthy and athletic shooting guard and we liked what we saw. If today’s performance is any indication, Morris will begin to garnish interest from D2 and lower tier D1 schools. Morris can score from all three levels. He finished with 17 points including two 3-pointers. He’s very active on both ends of the court and plays with tremendous poise. There’s a lot to like from his performance today.
6’5 2020 Nick Ford (Trinity Byrnes)
Standing a strong and sturdy 6’5, Nick Ford has such a smooth and fluid game. He has outstanding range/touch, not to mention a quick release. Ford plays with a lot of poise and maturity and brings an all business-like approach to the game. Rarely rarely do you see him change body language or emotion on the court. Ford finished with 14 points including two 3-pointers.
