Phenom Stay Positive – NW Guilford – Game 5 Sunday Session – Court 3

16u Silver Championship

Charlotte NETS 2021-Gainey vs CP3 (15U)

Final

CP3 (15u) – 81
Charlotte NETS 2021-Gainey (16u) – 47

Though the NETS were giving up a lot in size, they made it competitive early.  They did a good job of spreading the floor (5-out), and putting players in position to take advantage of their quickness and speed.  Eventually, the size, strength, speed, and athleticism of the CP3 squad took over.  Deante Green got it going early for CP3 with 13 first-half points.  Even when CP3 went 5-out themselves, putting Deante on the short corner, he was still very effective: catching the ball and facing the basket in triple threat.  He found several of his teammates either cutting to the basket or, setting up on the outside for a perimeter shot.  Once the whole team settled down, several others got involved as well with CP3 winning by a substantial margin of victory: 81-47.  Deante finished the game with 15 points, and Jayden Young also had a productive game for CP3 scoring 16.  Both he and Deante were Co-MVPs.  For the Charlotte NETS, Jasiah Wilson had 9 points, and Tyler Richardson had 11.
