Who To Look Out At Windsor NPH Showcase

The NPH Showcase returns to Windsor with tons of talent coming out to the University of Windsor this weekend.

Headlining the upperclassmen are both C/O 2019 Thomas Kennedy and Magdi Tiea bringing forth contrasting styles of play.

Kennedy, at six foot eight is extremely polished with the ball in his hands, showing the ability to create of the dribble for himself and teammates.

Also standing at foot eight, Tiea on the is athletically inclined and is able to run the floor like a deer in transition.

#GIBBONS: JUSTIN YOUNG’S FRIDAY NIGHT NOTEBOOK

SUWANEE, GA - Opening night of the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions is always an interesting one. Teams from all corners of the Southeast make their way through the grinding Atlanta traffic for the most storied stage in grassroots hoops. The goal for day one - set the tone for the big weekend ahead. Several teams, and players, did just that.

HI, MY NAME IS…
Modestas Kancleris, JSI Elite, 2020 (pictured above): There wasn’t a bigger storyline for me on Friday night than the 6-foot-8 Lithuanian import. He’s been in the United States for 15 days and he’s been on a tear ever since with JSI Elite. On the opening night of Bob Gibbons, he played the role of Mr. Versatility. Kancleris scored with jumpers, post ups, transition, offensive putbacks and from three. He is a skilled passer and shined as a shot-blocker. Overall, he showed flashes of so many good things. He’s been to the United States before and has a good reputations in Europe. According to Jason Smith of JSI, he’s already been offered by Indiana and Auburn. Kancleris is a no-brainer high-major player and potentially a top 50 level national prospect in the 2020 class.

TOP DOGS
Jalen Benjamin, Steakhouse Elite, 2019 - A scorer supreme, Benjamin started the event off strong, scoring 20 points in an opening round win. He displayed a great pull up, a nice three point jumper, a floater and thrived as a good pick and roll guy. He’s the scoring leader of this winning team this spring and continues to play well for the adidas Gauntlet team. He’s a good transition passer and very comfortable as a passing guard. Benjamin said he has an offer from Lehigh and interest from Furman, Northern Kentucky, Yale and Brown.

Elite hoopers shine and pay respects in the Josh Level Classic

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Just over five years after the tragic death of Josh Level, one of North Carolina’s most promising young basketball prospects, the all-star game held in his honor is still drawing capacity crowds and displaying a who’s who of the state’s hoops talent.

“I didn’t know Josh personally, but I know a lot of people that knew him and everyone loved him,” said Trinity Christian School (Fayetteville, N.C.) wing Joey Baker, a Duke signee. “It’s cool that a great event like this could come from something so tragic.”

North Carolina signee Coby White scored 41 points to lead Team B Daht past Team Drankins 128-121 Saturday in the Josh Level Classic.

SW SHOWCASE SUMMER CHAMPIONSHIP NEWS & NOTES

The first day of the Southwest Showcase Summer Championship is in the books and we now move into Sunday with bracket play. First off I would like to start with the fact that tournament director Ron Coleman deserves some props for A) making a super pool in this event and B) shelling out a couple extra dollars, where most will not, to get an extra referee in those games to handle the bulk of the tournaments top talent.

In that super pool the Arizona Firestorm went 2-0, defeating both the Factory and Blue Chip Nation Elite behind the play of 6-foot-3 2019 guard Tyrek Chambers and 6-foot-5 unsigned senior guard Rashad Smith. The rest of the team is made up of some talented guys from Compass Prep and they really get after it. The ball moved on offense so much better than what I though it might and the Firestorm were hitting shots. Chambers lit up the scoreboard as good as anyone on Saturday. Their 6-foot-7 unsigned senior forward Karon Bailey was impressive with several athletic finishes and some tough play inside. Smith was a defensive menace and created countless transition scoring opportunities for his squad.

iS8/Nike Quarterfinal Recaps

SOUTH RICHMOND HILL, NY- Quarterfinal Day at the iS8 Spring Classic took place on Sunday at the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Queens with each of the matchups presenting interesting and intriguing storylines.

Would the top four seeds who had byes into the quarterfinals make their ways into the semifinals or would upsets take place to shake things up? Many of the area’s top stars were in attendance meaning it would be a star studded day of play on Sunday, and with NYCHoops.net on hand throughout let's now recap the action from the tournament that always encourages players to bring their game and not their name.

The Pangos All-American Camp (June 1-3) has been certified by the NBA, allowing NBA scouts to attend and observe. Story coming.

Sounds like one-and-done is coming to an end.

The Pangos All-American Camp has been certified by the NBA per a source, meaning that NBA scouts will be allowed to evaluate the high school prospects in attendance. Expect more camps like this to be certified. Those scouts have to see those prep-to-pros kids somewhere...

The Chase
Grassroots Basketball

When you think of Grassroots basketball, small town teams first come to mind. These are teams that are not part of the so-called basketball shoe circuit sponsored by Nike Adidas, and Under Armour, and in most situations are teams with rosters filled from local residents or players from a certain geographic part of a state. In addition, many of these teams are financially challenged. Not all, but for the most part financed through player fees, donations, or fundraisers. To put it simply, these are teams that are on a limited budget. To take it one step further, the roster may consist of a few D1, D2, D3, NAIA, Juco and even a community college level prospect and for the most part players that will never play again after their high school days are over.

Looking around the basketball landscape, one can easily see there is no shortage of “grassroot” teams. As an event operator filled in a very competitive market, there are countless tournaments each and every weekend. Hundreds of teams travel to play in various events for the sake of giving young players an opportunity or platform to play. Like most travel ball teams, the coaches are dedicated, hardworking individuals who sacrifice time and money to help a player chase their dream. When one looks at the overall statistic of the number of scholarships that are available at any collegiate level, the odds don’t favor 98% of the players who travel each weekend to play in countless events during the spring and summer.

One of the biggest questions you will hear is why are there so many travel ball teams that exist today. Yes, the market has become saturated with teams and many people will criticize teams and players stating they have no chance at getting to the next level. However, there are always some young player who will defy the odds that will come from some small rural town that will jump onto the scene. No matter how difficult it may be, the majority of young players are just looking for a chance, an opportunity, a platform and most of all a dream!
