N.C. Top 80 Preview

The Carolina Challenge is no longer, but the N.C. Top 80 is one of two major N.C. events (along with last weekend's Super 60) to step in and fill the void.

The Top 80 is hosted by the Phenom Hoop Report and will feature many of the state's best prospects, along with a few others I've yet to watch in person. The one-day affair should prove very illuminating for the Class of 2015 as well as 2016 and 2017.

Where: Greensboro, N.C.

When: March 29

Reporting Staff: Rob Harrington

Top Players: Lavar Batts, Iran Bennett, David Caraher, Simeon Carter, Ty Gadsden, Jalen Harris, Shaun Kirk, Isaiah Maurice, Luke Maye, Kwe Parker, Steven Santa Ana, Junior Smith.

Looking Forward To: This will be the final North Carolina event for quite some time that doesn't conflict with something on the national travel schedule. Following this weekend, into April and beyond, players will disperse and mostly travel with their AAU teams. For that reason, then, watching everyone closely will be imperative.
