The Phenom Summer Havoc has come and gone, but that doesn't mean the coverage stops there as we want to talk a little bit more about what we saw on the court throughout the last four days. Here are a few topics that I was able to view at the event.

Coming from Texas, Team Blessed looked to make noise and compete against some of the premier talent around the region.  Though there were ups and downs, this was a team that brought some intriguing talent to check out more. So let's dive into a few names that we saw.

2024 6'4 Martez James – He was the most consistent throughout the event, as the 6'5 prospect filled it up, scored consistently, and really played with a strong motor.  He did much of his work using his frame to get downhill and get to the basket, while also staying active on the glass, creating second-chance opportunities, and finishing through contact or get to the line.

2027 6'7 David Baliraine – One of the youngest players playing up, Baliraine showed flashes of what he could and you couldn't help his 6'7 frame already.  Though still raw, he is one that you can see him only getting better the more he understands and develops. But he has the size and frame you have to like at his age, looks to alter shots, stays active on the boards, and can score at times around the basket.

2024 6'6 Cooper Watson –  Coming off a season in which he was able to secure a state title, the 6'6 prospect from Southside HS (AR) was able to show how crafty he can be with his vision, his ability to knock down shots, and use his size well to his advantage. Though he was fighting off being sick throughout, Watson gave us flashes and battled through the event.

2024 Micah Story – Another strong and sturdy guard that helped control the game, make strong plays off the dribble, got downhill and embraced contact, and was one of the clear leaders that looked and helped everyone else get involved. Really like his overall feel and what he brought to the table for this team.
