Here are a few teams that stood out on Day 2.

High Point Hornets

Local team in North Carolina, but showed some good stuff against Team Quest in the first game of the day. Greyson Collins surprised us early, scoring 25 points in the win for the Hornets. He knocked down four three’s, attacked the rim, got to the line, and did a the little things to help will his team to a win. They eventually finished the pool play with a 3-0 record.

SC Ballers

In one of the performances of the day, LaTrae Hannibal showed that this young guard can play. In the first game of Day 2, he put in 31 points before falling in a 1-point defeat. In the second game, he chipped in 14 points but he proved that he is more than a capable scorer. This kid certainly impressed and should be one to watch from South Carolina, as he is only in the class of 2019.

Team Go Hard

As a team, one might have not heard to much about this Raleigh based team. But they had the college coaches attention all day long here at D1 Sports. Williams Jones led the way, as the crafty, quick point guard was solid against Team Phoenix. Rodrigo Degiovani also knocked down shots from the out side, while they continued to rotate big men in with length and size. Plers like Aaron Johnson, Alassane Seck, and Julio Cardosa caused issues down low in the paint, as they dominated in Game 2 today.

Team Winston 17U

Yet another impressive win, as they ultimately just dominated from start to finish. It isn’t that they have a dominate scorer; they use their athletic ability, length, and quickness to overmatch their opponent. In their win against Loxdown today, they had five different players in double digits. They certainly might have proven they are one of the best teams here at the CP3 Live event.

Loxdown United

Even though they were outmatched agaisnt Team Winston, one player, 2016 Deon Tabb didn’t back down, scoring an impressive 33 points against a very good Winston team (in front over several college coach). It looks like he is leaving off right where he finished at the Champion Showcase, where he averaged 18 points per game. He has been slowly picking up interest from schools. He has a big frame and uses that to his advantage. He is able to get inside and simpyl score buckets, while knocking down a few three’s in the loss as well.

Boo Williams WAWG

In the first game, they simply outmatched the Golden Knights to an easy win. In the second game, they took on Team 1on1 in a competitive matchup. 2017 Devante Carter has already earned several offers such as Kansas state, Louisiana Tech, ODU, Southern Miss, and others, as several college coaches surrounded the sidelines. This athletic guard certainly didn’t disappoint with his slashing ability, ability to attack, and make his opponents pay. He also threw one off the glass for a vicious throwdown that woke up the crowd. Kyle Foster, 2017 kid, led the way in the first game with 15 points, while the talented Virginia team impressed much of their spectators throuhgout the day. Other players to keep an eye on is 2017 6’7 Wesley Morgan, big man Brandon Gaddy, and several others stood out at times on Day 2. Very good and talented team.

CP3 2016

After losing their first two on Day 1, they bounced back with two solid victories. Grant Williams looked in form and solid, playing down low in the paint and also showing his outside game. 2018 Will Dillard played up and showed he could play with the big boys, controlling the game at point and using his quickness to get by. Quante McKinzie, solid big man with a ton of length, proved he is a defensive stopper and blocking several shots (also had some nice thunderous dunks). Other players like 2016 Ian Boyd, Marcus Watson, and others proved they could play as well.

Taylored Athletes

Two players that certainly have caught the eye of a few Phenom Hoops analysts are 6’7 2016 Giovanni Fraser and 6’2 2016 Christoff Nairn. Two solid players that really fit the eye test from the team up from Florida. Another guy to keep a watch on is 6’8 2017 Terrion Miller.
