Greetings HS hoops junkies from across the vacationing piedmont. The Sadster is here to recap Day 3 at Phenom Summer Havoc in Fort Mill, SC. We will now recap games mainly from Court 3 and will look at his Serious 6 for the day. To the recaps!!!!
NC ICE 2021 deported Rock Nation Impact 75-45. Isaiah Escobar tallied 15 points and Lorne “Adama” Green scored 13 for ICE. (Those of you who remember the original Battlestar Galactica series will appreciate that joke.) Irvin Scarlett scored 17 for the Impact.
Lowcountry Bulldogs 16U squeaked past PSB ELITE JONES 53-51. Omarion Green led the way with 16 and Yaturi Bolton added 15 of his own to lead the Dogs. Camden Johnson scored 14 for PSB. This game was nip and tuck right down to a missed shot to tie the game that fell harmlessly off the rim. Both teams out out a supreme effort, especially for the 1st game of the day.
Upward Stars PeeDee 16U corralled the Mauldin Longhorns 91-71. Christian Taylor had a game high 20 and Ayden Hickman also had 19 to cap a winning game for the Stars. James Cooper tallied 16 to lead the Horns.
CC Elite 16U nipped the Capital City Pacers 62-60. The Central Cabarrus connection of Christian Cornish and Marvin Bost both had 16 for CC. Donovan Martin led the Pacers with 16. Evan McCormick also gave a stellar effort, scoring 14 in a losing cause.
Columbia Hoyas wronged Team Wright 88-60. Jayden Sweetenburg went crazy in scoring 31 including a couple of AND ONNNNNNNES! along the way. Dimarco Johnson helped him out with 15 points. Valerian Bruce had 13 for Wright.
CEBA Massey 2020 slipped past Flight 22 Asheville 68-62. Machai Holt led the charge with 15 points and Jesse Walters added 14 for Massey. Tyrese Thompson was the gamer with 19 for Asheville.
NC Spartans West routed PSB Winston Black 67-40. Austin Longworth led the avalanche with 24 and Jordan Newsome added 12 for the Spartans. Jeremy Mull collected 17 for PSB.
NC Spartans 16U fell hard to CC ELITE JEFFERSON 83-45. Riley Dougherty led all scorers with 21 and Caleb Wetherbee added 10 for CC. Jake Kawalek and James Proctor each had 11 for the Spartans.
The Charlotte Nets 15U tamed the NC Runnin Rebels 67-53 behind a stellar game by Dwayne Stroud. He used his body to post 21 points and 7 boards. Drew Walker also put up 14 for the Nets. Jarius Copeny led the Rebels with 17 and Nathan Spence chipped in 13 in coming up short.
The NC Flames 2020 cut down the Charlotte Nets 2021 77-47. Tyrese McNeal scored 19 points and Justice Davis added 14 for the Flames. Tyler Richardson racked up 19 to lead the Nets.
Spectrum 2022 rallied to top Team Wall SE 2022, 65-60. Ethan Millirons pumped in 21 from all 3 levels and Ayrion Journiette posted 18 as well to lead Spectrum to the win. Chuquez Lewis had 19 and Tae’jon Myers tallied 14 to pace Wall.
There you have it folks! The Great One will return on Monday for his Day 4 final recap from Phenom Summer Havoc but now, the “Serious 6” for Day 3:
Omarion Green – Lowcountry Bulldogs 16U
Christian Cornish – CC ELITE 16U
Jayden Sweetenburg – Columbia Hoyas 17U
Austin Longworth – NC Spartans West
Dwayne Stroud – Charlotte Nets 15U
Ethan Millirons – Spectrum 2022
The Stellar One will now mention a player who never quits. 6’4 Elijah Huffman of Team Wall SE 2022 is an all out hustle guy and wants to win badly. His 5 blocks and 10 rebounds kept Wall in the game against Spectrum 2022. With more polish, he could blossom into a really productive all-around player.
