Both teams are revitalized after very good summer’s and team growth. Ridge View is a team that is led by guard play. They will press, run, and attack you on both ends of the floor. They have some guys who can shoot, and senior leadership.

Fayetteville Academy received a nice transfer from Jon Gauer and brought in a freshman that is sure to make noise in the post. There is some length, a lot of young talent, and some guards who are aggressive.

This game should be a great one to start the day with. Two teams that play with chips on their shoulders. There are multiple college prospects on both teams, with each team holding D1 players.

Players to Watch
Ridge View
6’4” Senior Cainan Griffin

Griffin is an aggressive wing player. The lefty has a confident stroke from well beyond the arc and a sturdy frame, that can handle in the half court. Griffin should end up as the team’s leading scorer. He is a scholarship guy

6’7” Junior Kaiden Rice
Rice is very lengthy, and may be the best pure shooter in this entire event. He burst onto the scene this Summer at Phenom AAU events, where he averaged over 20 points per game. When he is playing confidently he is able to score in many ways. Rice is a 4.0 student and getting looked at by Ivy League schools. He is a D1 player.

Fayetteville Academy
6’4” Junior Jon Gauer

Gauer is a lengthy wing that has good quickness and nice explosion. He has been coming to NC Phenom 150 camp for years, and has progressed each time out. He defends the wing with a purpose and he is best getting downhill, and attacking the basket. Gauer is a high academic student that is getting Ivy League interest. He should be looked at by D1 schools.

6’6” Freshman William Onyeobi
Onyeobi is workhorse in the paint. He burst onto the scene during Session 2 of the NC Phenom 150 camp this Fall. He is a very long, strong, and highly active post player. He finishes around the rim with strong hands and steps out to 18 feet to knock down a shot. He is a load for anyone to match up with, and is tracking as a D1 level player.

Matchup to Watch
Cainan Griffin Vs Jon Gauer
These two are the unquestioned leaders, and most likely leading scorers, for their team. Both players have great size and good length. Griffin is a more perimeter oriented lefty, with a smooth shot and deep range. Gauer is more of a downhill wing, with good length and athleticism. Who wins this matchup, may go along way in deciding who wins the game. Not to mention, D2 and D1 colleges should get in the gym to see them play.
