The 6’8” Top 30 Duke signee at Trinity Episcopal in Richmond, Virginia made his mark on the Outer Banks, in a major way! During both of his games, he absolutely came alive in the second half, just ripping rims down and playing with incredible aggression. Coleman is a unique blend of very high IQ mixed with incredible tenacity once he steps between the lines. Coleman had the crowd buzzing with the display of dunks he put on, but also his rebounding, shot-blocking and pushing the break. Duke got them a team guy, a high-level team guy who will be a key cog in a winning program.
Farmville Central Backcourt
Justin Wright took over the game in the second half. At the half, Farmville Central had 21 points, Larry Williford gave one of his patented half time talks and Farmville came out to score 45 points in the second half against one of the premier teams North Carolina has to offer, and one of the top 100 teams in the country. A North Carolina Central signee, Wright finished with a game-high 26 points while also adding 7 rebounds and 2 steals. Anytime his team needed a big play, Wright was up to the task. This crowd was electric, and it seemed like Wright thrived when the bright lights turned on. However, with as good as Wright was, let’s not have it overshadow the game unsigned senior Semage Teel played. He finished up with 22 points and came out aggressively from the start of the game. He was steady throughout and showcasing why the strong-bodied 6’1” guard is one of the most under-recruited players in North Carolina’s 2020 class.
The 6’10” Michigan signee showcased why he is ranked among the countries Top 10 prospects. He has the most pro-looking game of anyone we have covered over the past few years. The growth in his game from last year to this has not come from any skill development, however, it came from where he played from. Eighteen feet and in, Todd is an absolute monster. When he is determined to get to the rim, playing in the dunk spots, or facing up form the free throw line and mid-post, his skill set, length and athleticism are unmatched on most floors. Todd showcased his dominance, while still showcasing his beautiful 3-point shot. He is a monster prospect, continuing to solidify his top prospect status in North Carolina and his Top 10 status in the country.
Chad Williams created this event in the name of his father, Guy Williams, who lost his battle to cancer just after last year’s event. Good Guys vs. Cancer benefits the American Cancer Society, going for cancer research. Even with all of the high-level players on the floor and the nationally ranked teams playing and the crowds bouncing off the walls in the stands, at the heart of this event will always be Guy Williams and the donation made to the American Cancer Society off the gate from this event. Thank you to EVERYONE who walked through those doors and supported the cause!
