    • UPlay vs Rotary Rebels (Court 1)
    This one was a nail biter. Five-star forward Will Riley hit two free throws to put UPlay down one at 58-57 with 36 seconds left., but the Rotary Rebels were able to score on the other end and UPlay could not mount the comeback. Unranked shooting guard Kaden Powers led the way for the Rotary Rebels with 24 points, drilling 5-of-8 shots from 3-point range.

    • Oakland Soldiers vs. Arizona Unity (Court 2)
    One of the best games of Friday ended the way any great basketball game should, with a game winning shot. And who else to do it but the No. 1 player in 2025 AJ Dybantsa?

    It was a big day for Dybantsa, as he also transferred high schools earlier in the morning. Click the link for his breakdown of the move to Utah Prep.

    The No. 1 player in the 2026 class, Brandon McCoy, played his heart out in this game and finished with 15 points and 12 rebounds. He did everything he could to help AZ Unity without fellow class of 2026 five-star Kaden House and his twin brother Kalek House. He was guarded by No. 2 overall player in the 2026 class Tyran Stokes most of the game.

    • SFG vs. Georgia Stars (Court 3)
    SFG cruised to victory after another masterclass from five-star guard Brayden Burries, who had 24 points on 10-of-15 shooting in the 83-62 win. Four-star combo guard Elzie Harrington contributed 21 points. LeBron James again in attendance.

    • Team Final vs. Houston Hoops (Court 4)
