Welcome to the December edition of #HoopState! This month, holiday tournaments were the stage for the #HoopState’s best to shine. High Point Christian and Wesleyan Christian showed out for North Carolina at the City of Palms. Kwe Parker took home the Slam Dunk Contest, while “Bam” Adebayo showed Ft. Myers how he got his nickname. The HSOT Holiday Invitational was home to yet another exciting field, headlined by a trio of UK commits (Adebayo, Killeya-Jones, D-Fox). While High Point Christian took home the crown, NC’s top junior, Lavar Batts Jr. brought the show from Concord as he went head to head with UK commit De’Aaron Fox. Garner’s Thomas Allen went off, leading the tournament in scoring. UVA commit Jay Huff showed the Triangle that his Voyager Academy is a contender for the 1A state title and he and Chance Greene lead the way. Fayetteville Terry Sanford, led by brothers Malik and Telligence Johnson, seem to have “Dreamville” on lock early on in the season. As a bonus, we’ve added a couple “adopted” #Hoopstate members. First, we’ve added Seventh Woods, since he’s going to be a Tar Heel next season. We’ve also added Braxton Key, an Alabama commit after he recent relocation to the #Hoopstate! Other included in the episode are Ty Graves, China Jones, Brandon Childress, and Jalen Johnson.
