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.

Teams: Team HOPE


TEAM HOPE 2023 Laney has had much success during their participation in the Phenom Series. Making it to the championship game in the Spring Tip-Off and their only loss in the Phenom Opening was to Team Loaded VA who went on to win the event in the 16U division. TEAM HOPE 2023 Laney is led by 6’2 Guard Dallas Gardner and 6’7 Forward Patrick Tivnan. Both prospects are high-level competitors who impact the game on both ends of the floor. 6’0 Guards Eli Clark & Bryson Davis are also major contributors to this team. Expect them to have a great performance this wknd in the Queen City Showcase.

TEAM HOPE 2023 McGee

TEAM HOPE 2023 McGee is what you will call a blue-collar group. This group plays hard and plays together and is led by their emotional leaders Kyle Collins and Danny Stevens. The energy that these two young men play with and becomes contagious amongst the entire team. Guards Justin Shumaker is a sniper behind the arc and 6’8 Forward Kaleb Parker has the showing and potential in becoming a big-time player who can impact the game in a variety of ways with his length, athleticism, and skill set. Expect this group to have a good showing this wknd.

TEAM HOPE 2024 Laney

TEAM HOPE 2024 Laney is a talented and fundamental team. Their ability to defend, shoot the 3, and get out and transition makes them a tough out for any opponent. This group is led by Guards Bryson Heath & Cinjun Bridges. This backcourt is exciting and fun to watch and if they have it going from behind the 3 it can be a long day. The interior play of 6’5 Forward Cameron McKinney has been key to this team’s success. His ability to rebound, finish around the rim, and just outworking his opponent has allowed him to be a force to be reckoned with. Expect TEAM HOPE 2024 Laney to have a good showing this wknd in the Queen City Showcase.
