We are excited to be hosting the 2nd Annual Phenom Hoops Challenge this year. We are looking at a field of 72 teams with a lot of talent to be had at the D1, D2, D3, JUCO, and NAIA levels. There is no doubt that this year’s Challenge will keep the college coaches in attendance excited as the discover new talent as well as stay on top of the names the already knew.

This week, Phenom Hoops will be going through matchups and players to watch in each division. So that you will be on top of some players to watch

5’11” Kody Shubert (Team Charlotte)

First thing is first, Shubert is extremely fun to watch. He is a heady point guard, that has a sense of flash to his game. His skill set is that, his flash does not take away from his ability to make the correct play. Shubert has touch with his jump shot and great court awareness.

6’4” Nate Hinton (Upward Stars)

Hinton is an all out, high motor wing. He has great size, but it is his competitive nature that sets him apart from the rest. Already, at this point in his career, Hinton has the likes of Davidson and Virginia coming through his gym. With a 4.0 GPA, look for Hinton’s stock to continue to raise.

6’8” Kyle Rawson (Upward Stars)

One could argue that Rawson has the most upside of anyone in the entire tournament. He is extremely skilled facing the basket, but also is showing some tenacity in the paint. Look to hear Rawson’s name a lot over the next few years.

6’6” Jackson Bell (Team Vision -Red)

Bell is a unique kid, he comes from NBA pedigree as his Grandfather played for the New York Knicks. Bell is homeschooled right now, and plays competitively for Moravian Prep. Bell has a great frame, and even better skill set with deep range beyond the arc. He is rostered to play in the 17s age bracket, and will not look out of place.

6’4” Josh Searcy (Team Felton)

Searcy is a new name to many, as he plays at a smaller high school, but he had sort of a break out at the prestigious 2015 NC Top 80. Searcy has a long frame, and a developed skill set beyond the arc. Searcy is the kind of guy who you can project to grow, strength wise as he already has college level size and skills.
