- Southern Assault's depth, chemistry, & dominance was on full display paced by 5-star Keyonte George and featured new additions Johan Traore and Quion Williams, versatile 4-star Colin Smith, and a tough backcourt in Khaden Bennett and CJ Ford gives Southern Assault one of the toughest squads in the nation.
- Beast Up Basketball was one of the biggest surprises of the weekend. Really impressed with the program and the players. They featured one of the top bigs in Tx in 6'9 Zuby Ejiofor who is a 4-star recruit with numerous P5 offers. Another top performer was PG Austin Beningni who proved to be one of the better backcourt players at the event. Really made them GO! 2022s Davion Sykes, Pierre Hunter, and Cooper McCauley provided depth and consistent production on both ends. College coaches will surely be honed in on this group once the summer live period hits.
- The Magnificent Matchups between the State's Best Players including Arterio Morris vs Keyonte George, Keyonte George vs Cason Wallace; Anthony Black vs Terrance Arceneaux, Quion Williams vs Jordan Walsh, Johan Traore vs Cam Corhen, just to name a few! Great evaluation opportunity and just good for the game overall. Kudos to the players for competing hard and taking the challenge all weekend.
