Bermuda Run, North Carolina – Day 1 of the June Scholastic Live Period is upon us and college coaches were out in force. On3 is courtside to let you know who is watching who and how everyone is playing.

1:00 PM Huntersville (NC) North Meck vs. Carrboro (NC) Northwood

Head Coaches: Kevin Keatts (NC State). Mark Prosser (Winthrop), Steve Forbes (Wake Forest)

Assistants: Miami, VCU, Texas A&M, UMass, South Florida, Clemson, Charlotte, High Point, Marshall, Boston U. Appalachian State, Longwood, Ohio, Mount St. Mary’s, etc.

Quite possibly the matchup of the weekend for the North Carolina event. North Meck features 2024 four-star Isaiah Evans, and Northwood features 2024 Drake Powell.

Powell is a 6-foot-6 guard who picked up offers from Virginia Tech, Miami, and Texas A&M on June 15. Evans is generally thought of as a four-star prospect with offers from Illinois, Tennessee, Texas A&M, South Florida, and others.

Drake Powell finished with a game high 21 points. Evans had 10.

3:00 PM Rockingham (NC) Richmond Senior vs. Carrboro (NC) Northwood

Head Coaches: Mike Young (Virginia Tech), Steve Forbes (Wake Forest), Kevin Keatts (NC State)

Assistants: Texas A&M, Miami, Clemson, Liberty, VCU, Ohio, Boston U, Charlotte, etc.

Another great individual matchup with 6-foot-6 2024 Drake Powell squaring off with 6-foot-5 2024 four-star Paul McNeil. Powell and his offers are listed above.

McNeil picked up Missouri and LSU offers on June 15. Those two offers join Clemson, NC State, Tennessee, and others.

Northwood’s 6-8 2023 Max Frazier had a host of MEAC and Big South Schools watching him. He should be one to watch snag some offers at that level.

Powell finished with a game high 22 points. NcNeil had 19, after an 11 point second half. Frazier had 16.

6:00 PM Columbia (SC) Gray Collegiate vs. Spartanburg (SC) Dorman High

Head Coaches: Brian Burg (Georgia Southern)

Assistants: Oregon, South Carolina, High Point, East Tennessee St., USC Upstate, Jacksonville

This one was an intriguing one. Both schools are traditional South Carolina high school powerhouses. Each team has some players who are right on the verge of a breakout, but not there just yet.

The main attraction of the game is Gray Collegiate’s 6-foot-6 2025 wing Treyvon Maddox. Gray Collegiate is led by 6-9 2024 Ellis Graham and 6-foot-8 2023 Avontae Parker. Senior point guard Trai White will win a lot of games at the appropriate collegiate level.

Dorman has 2024 point guard Christian Andrews, 2023 Jordan Miller is an interesting gname for Dorman as well.

They are not keeping score, but Dorman won the game on a corner three with seconds left.

7:00 PM Greenville (SC) High vs. Lexington (SC) High

Head Coach: Lamont Paris (South Carolina), Brian Burg (Georgia Southern)

Assistants: South Carolina (x3), Georgia, Oregon, North Carolina, Clemson, Florida State, College of Charleston, Central Florida, Tennessee, and Winthrop

South Carolina showed up four deep for both of 2024 No. 16 Cam Scott’s games today. He put on a show in this one, scoring at each level, rebounding, and showing some offensive creation.

Scott’s Lexington High won the came going away.

8:00 PM Greenville (SC) Christ Church vs. Irmo (SC) High

Head Coach: Lamont Paris (South Carolina)

Assistants: South Carolina (x3), Oregon, Tennessee, Citadel, Presbyterian

The show here was On3’s No. 40 in 2023 Jordan Butler. The 6-foot-10 post did not leave coaches disappointed finishing with 26 points and 12 rebounds. The four-star was 5 of 7 from three.

A player to watch for Irmo is 6-foot-8 2023 forward Brandon Crawford. Programs like the Citadel and Presbyterian will have interest in the long, active, and bouncy forward.
