The Queen City Showcase in Rock Hill this weekend is going to be off the charts.  With talent all on the floor, livestreams streaming the games, and a ton of coverage from Phenom Hoops, this is going to be one of the best events to start the travel ball season.

That is why we wanted to get a leg up on it, as we spoke to several coaches that will be bringing their teams to South Carolina this weekend.  Below, we look at a few players that you may want to check out on the court, whether you are a college coach, a scout, or a fan.

Check out a few names below for each team.

Team: Carolina Riptide 2023

Malik McCollough – 2023/ 6’0
Coaches Thoughts: Malik plays well above his 6’ stature. Handles the ball and can score and defend. He is the definition of tough. On a team with so many guards, Malik is asked to play every spot.

Jy Gladden – 2023/ 6’2
Coaches Thoughts: Jy is a high motor defender with length, great handles, creates and attacks the rim.

JJ Mata – 2023/ 6’1
Coaches Thoughts: JJ is long and athletic, highly competitive, can score and defend.
