GREENSBORO, NC – Tonight (Tuesday night), via the @Phenom_Hoops twitter feed, Phenom Hoop Report will announce the field of teams for the 2018 Phenom’s National High School Showcase.
High school basketball season is here and in North Carolina that means Phenom’s 5th Annual National High School Showcase presented by Chatlee Boats is right around the corner. This year’s event will again be held at Greensboro Day School, in Greensboro, North Carolina, on November 16 and 17.
The Phenom Hoop Report has also gotten the shot clock approved in this event, as it will use a shot clock. It will be the second event ever in North Carolina (along with Carmel Christian’s Tip-Off Classic presented by Phenom Hoop Report) that will use a shot clock
This event has become a must stop event for the top teams and talent around the country. Players who competed in Phenom National Showcase went on to play in the highest-level prep All-Star events, with 8 having played in the McDonald’s All-American game and 7 having participated in the Jordan Brand All Star Classic.
Currently there are five players who participated in this event who drafted in the NBA draft and are currently on NBA contracts. Dwayne Bacon (Hornets), Thomas Bryant (Wizards), Miles Bridges (Hornets), Harry Giles (Kings) and Justin Jackson (Magic).
Over one hundred players who participated here have gone on to play Division 1 basketball and even more have gone on to play Division 2, Division 3 and Juco across the country.

This year’s event will have teams from six different states. There will be multiple nationally ranked Top 50 teams, along with numerous Top 100 prospects. There will even be multiple consensus Top 10 prospects participating. Just as the five years of this event has come to prove, every team is talented.
