Adidas Presidents’ Day National Championship brought talent through out the country here to Portland, Oregon. Each day was full of tough competition from programs like Team CP3 to F.O.E. Forcing players, coaches, and even officials to bring their best game each tip off until the final horn sounded. Three days of 425 teams competing at a high level & making each other better. Overall great experience for everyone in attendance. Shout out to Hoopsource for another successful event.
2023 Champions -CP3
Runner up - Team Dynasty Red
8th grade was dominated by arguably the best team in the country in CP3. They are stacked from top to bottom and a well coached group with chemistry. The #1 player in Canada, Elijah Fisher, was also in attendance. He lead his team to the semi finals with his unreal athleticism and toughness. Donald Stephens, the in state stud continued to prove that he belonged in the conversation with the elite players of the class leading Dynasty Red to the championship and earning Co-MVP Honors.
2024 Champions - Team F.O.E.
Runner up - Team Thrill
Coming into the weekend teams the most anticipated game of the event in my opinion was the battle for #1 with F.O.E. vs Team Thrill. Both teams have high caliber players that thrive in big time situations and it was the first game out the gate. F.O.E. Got the win and we finally were able to see that the hype was real with Deontrell Barrett who we’ve been hearing about for a while. He’s a physical, athletic guard that thrives on getting in the lane and finishing. He showed to be as good as advertised and he played on both ends. Nigel James of Team Thrill showed poise and maturity running the show offensively and scoring when needed. He understands the game very well at a young age. DaQuan Davis is the ultimate glue guy, he plugs all holes for team thrill and play so much heart on both ends. This kid is just a winner. Marlon Linton Jr. of F.O.E., Danny Carbuccio of NY Gauchos, Derrick Queen of Team Thrill, Terrence Hill Jr. of Northwest Athletics are some others that stood out in a loaded field of 2024 players.
