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: Team Synergy 17u
2022 6′ Richard Black III
Coach’s Thoughts: Is a dynamic, shifty scoring guard and playmaker. Scores the ball in different ways. put’s a lot of pressure on the defense with his crafty handle and change of speed, knocks down the 3 ball and gets to the rim, and finishes over bigs.
2022 5’11 Dariahn Hammonds
Coach’s Thoughts: A pass-first PG that looks to set up teammates with open shots. Gets into the paint collapsing the defense and has the ability to make the right pass to open teammates. A speedy and aggressive on-ball defender that forces turnovers.
2022 6’2 Dorien Johnson
Coach’s Thoughts: A tremendous shooter that can hurt you off the bounce. Also rebounds the ball exceptionally well for his size. because he rebounds so well and can handle the ball he’s able to start the break and make great decisions that lead to easy baskets.
2022 6’3 Rohan Petiote
Coach’s Thoughts: A high flying tenacious rim rocker, Rohan is an extremely gifted athlete that can explode to the rim with his first quick step and also can knock down 3’s. an elite on-ball defender that takes pride in stopping the opposing player.
2022 6’4 Joe McDonough
Coach’s Thoughts: An Elite shooter that has deep range and a quick trigger. because of his size, he is able to shoot over smaller defenders. His long arms help him recovery defensively and allow him to get his hands on a lot of balls.
