Prep Hoops was able to attend a few days of action here from the Myrtle Beach Sports Center covering the Big Shots Myrtle Beach Live I and II events. Who were some of the 2024 Top Performers we were able to see while in attendance? Read more inside right here on your source for basketball coverage in the Palmetto State.
Travis Stickney Travis Stickney 6'1" | PG Oceanside Collegiate | 2024 State SC – Oceanside Collegiate (Mount Pleasant) – Lowcountry Storm 2023 (pictured on front)
Stickney continues his hot play from the June High School Camp season with the Landsharks. Travis plays up an age group and sure doesn’t show no hesitation of backing down at all. Stickney is a savvy guard who can finish at the rim with both hands. He has a nice pull-up game to go along with his perimeter shooting. Travis is constantly around the ball to make a play and cause havoc at times.
Ellis Graham Ellis Graham 6'9" | PF Gray Collegiate | 2024 State SC – Gray Collegiate – Team USC 2024 Premier
Ellis is recently picked up an offer from Jacksonville University. Graham is a rim protector in the paint and really can alter and challenge shots on the defensive end. He feels very comfortable playing face-up to the basket and knocking down some short corner jumpers from time to time. Ellis will be a welcome addition to an already very talented War Eagles roster come this season.
Cayman Collins Cayman Collins 5'10" | PG Chapin | 2024 State SC – Chapin HS – Team USC 2024 Premier
Collins came to play today for Team USC 2024 Premier. Cayman is not big in size at all, but he makes up for it with his quickness. He was able to penetrate-kick and get the ball into the paint today. Cayman was able to connect on some mid-range jumpers when he wasn’t being disruptive on the defensive end of the floor.
Kavon Chisolm Kavon Chisolm 6'4" | PF Hampton County | 2024 State SC – Estill HS – Team USC 2024 Premier
Chisolm is a load in the paint at times with his size. Kavon is an undersized thicker post player who really likes to push defenders around. He plays off the grid down in the Lowcountry off I-95 in Hampton County. Kavon is a deceptive athlete for sure and really does a good job of knocking people around down on the block.
Gabriel Cusack Gabriel Cusack 5'11" | PG Marion | 2024 State SC – Marion HS – Big Shots SC Premier 2024
Cusack does it all for the Swamp Foxes up in the Pee Dee. He has been starting Quarterback since his freshman season and sees plenty of minutes on the hardwood for his squad. Cusack plays very well within a team concept with his approach on the hardwood. Gabriel was able to stick some open jumpers today and play solid defense.
RJ Simmons RJ Simmons 6'0" | CG James Island | 2024 State SC – James Island HS – Big Shots SC Premier 2024
Simmons looks to be on the move to James Island HS after helping Cathedral Academy win a SCISA Class 1A State Championship last season in which he dropped 44 points in the game. RJ is geared to score the ball from the backcourt. Simmons and Cusack are fairly new to the Big Shots SC Premier program.
Devin Grainger Devin Grainger 6'1" | CG Conway | 2024 State SC – Conway HS – Ascend Ballers
Grainger is just up to his usual game play. Devin was able to attack the cup or the baseline today at will. Grainger has solid court vision and really likes to utilize the old school bounce pass to his teammates. Devin was very active in the passing lanes to lead to some steals going the other way for easy buckets.
Josh Helms Josh Helms 6'0" | CG Laney | 2024 State NC – Laney HS (Wilmington, NC) – Wilmington Excel
Helms picked up the MVP honors for his services this weekend for the Port City program based out of the Hoop State. Josh is a very productive scorer with his shot selection and understanding of the game. He never looked to force his shot or his passes to his teammates. Helms as a nice all-around skill set for his age.
