"Basketball is a beautiful game when the five players on the court play with one heartbeat." - Dean Smith
The NBA Playoffs are coming to a close and I can't help but be reminded of the days that Bam Adebayo and Harry Giles were running things in North Carolina, back in 2015-2016 alongside Fayetteville's finest in Dennis Smith Jr. All those guys were Phenom Hoops alum and this weekend the hype is back.
We have combined the North Carolina and South Carolina Top 80s and put the two against each other in a Sweet 16 style bracket. It's all going down Saturday evening starting at 4:30pm LIVE from Rock Hill, SC.

Because this is the first year of the event being done in the fall, here's what we'll be missing:
Committed players: most the college committed guys have opted out, which is totally understandable.
Jonas Aidoo was selected to play in a national camp later this month and he'll be staying home to ensure his health for that big-time event.
Bobby Pettiford, although committed, wanted to compete and showcase his dominance at the guard spot. He tweaked his ankle, nothing major, but will be playing it safe this weekend.
Mikey Williams: simply put - I wish. lol
What to watch for?
The biggest piece of content coming from this years Phenom Top 80 will be the debut episode of our new YouTube series, "The Rod Bridger's Experience." Rod will be coaching a team, broadcasting games, talking to former #HoopState legends and sampling some of the best BBQ that Rock Hill has to offer.
We'll also be providing an overall event recap as our #MixtapeMonday with footage from some of the best videographers in the southeast.
Player features coming from a variety of guys like Robert Dillingham, Breon Pass, Elijah Jamison, Jahseem Felton & more. We'll also have scouting videos from guys like Brandon White, Nate Brafford, Jaylen Curry, Noah Ross and many others. Miles Masercola will also be running around doing some podcast with players and Donnie will be crushing the live highlights via our IG account.
