The inaugural NC Top 80 was held on March 29, 2014 in Greensboro, NC and I wasn’t able to fully scout the event due to the fact that we were broadcasting six of the games live on NetCast Sports Network, but I still had quite a few notes and I’m putting up them here broken out by each game to try and make it as easy to review as possible. Today I’m posting my notes from Game Four. Note: This is the second game of the day in which we broadcast Team 8, so my notes on those players are the same as previously published.

UPDATE: #60 was listed as Shaun Kirk on the broadcast from the event roster, but was replaced at the last minute by James Dickey, 6’9″, 2015 from Word of God.

Kylia Sykes (G/F, 6’5″, 2016) Athletic wing who showed a versatile game on the offensive end and an ability to play above the rim. Definitely a college prospect and one to keep an eye on.

Jalen Harris (G, 6′, 2016) Star point guard with explosive athleticism. One of the best point guards at the event and a serious collegiate prospect.

Kwe Parker (G, 6’1″, 2016) Explosive – as in elite – athlete above the rim but also showed an ability to spot up and knock down open threes today. One of the top athletes in attendance.

Rayjon Tucker (G/F, 6’5″, 2015) Easily one of the top players on the entire day. Absolutely lit up opposing teams at times- from windmill dunks to finishing in traffic, Tucker was another player who showed he was one of the top prospects in the Southeast and should be considered a national recruiting prospect. Elite athleticism, excellent build and college size for the perimeter. High motor.

Rob Brown (C, 6’8″, 2015) Good hands, runs the floor and gets involved in multiple ways. Cleans up a lot of misses around the basket and versatile in the post.

Greyson Kelley (PG, 6′, 2016) High motor guard who goes full blast all day. Can get buckets, works hard on defense.

Dennis Smith, Jr. (G, 6’2″, 2016) Explosive guard who gets a lot of notoriety for his athleticism on the offensive end, but played really hard on the defensive end as well. Can play on or off of the ball. Elite athlete at the guard spot.

James Dickey (SF/PF, 6’9″) Good length and versatile. Made a lot of the little plays – stealing a pass on the interior or grabbing a loose board for the putback. Was involved all day. Has some upside, raw athleticism.

Jalen Sanders (G, 6′, 2016) Physically strong combo guard who is at his best going at the bucket and using his strength to finish. Plays older than a sophomore.
