6’4 ’19 Quinten Thomas (Upward Stars Charlotte) The last year has been quite a turnaround for this squad. Formerly known as the Charlotte Nets, this new-and-improved Upward Stars Charlotte squad is a lot of fun to watch, especially behind the two-way leadership of Quinten Thomas.

Bendel’s Best: JMAC Showcase & CP3 Live (Part Three)

6’6 ’19 Jace McKenney (WBC Elite) The development process can be a long, grueling road for some players, but Jace McKenney has rapidly transformed into a quality prospect over the last year.
