Seventh Woods leads Hammond to big win over Spring Valley at Chick-fil-A Classic

Seventh Woods isn’t one to rest on his laurels. The Hammond senior and UNC commit has spent so much time in the gym during the past 48 hours, there’s a good chance he’s put up over 2,000 shots. It seems to be carrying over to games. He scored 33 points to lead the Skyhawks to an impressive 71-54 victory over Spring Valley on Monday night in the Chick-fil-A Classic. (The State)

North Carolina star recruit Seventh Woods knows days of wearing No. 23 dwindling

From early morning runs with the sun nowhere in sight to late-night shooting sessions until his arms ache, combo guard Seventh Woods is fully aware that, once he gets to college, he’ll have to make sacrifices in order to reach his full potential. The transition will be a lot smoother since he already made a huge sacrifice when he committed to UNC. “I’ve gotta find another number,” Woods said matter of factly. (USA Today)

Tony Bradley, Jayson Tatum get early start on UNC-Duke rivalry

Jayson Tatum, a Duke signee, had 36 points and five rebounds in his team’s 64-54 win at the City of Palms Classic.

Seventh Woods once turned down the Ellen DeGeneres Show

Ellen DeGeneres is one of the biggest stars on the planet with one of the biggest daytime talk shows in history, this much you know; what may surprise you is that once upon a time, roughly three years ago, reps from her show reached out to a 14-year-old basketball prodigy named Seventh Woods.

City of Palms showcases talented junior Kevin Knox

One of the best things about having so many elite players at the City of Palms Classic is the opportunity for comparisons. Scout.com’s No. 10 junior, Kevin Knox of Tampa (Fla.) Catholic, and No. 4 junior, Michael Porter Jr., of Father Tolton (Columbia, Mo.) played in back-to-back games. Knox, who is listed at 6-8 and 195 pounds, had 27 points and 12 rebounds to lead his team to a 66-54 win. (USA Today)

City of Palms: Five-stars dominate first day of action

Five-star junior forward Kevin Knox performed well in the Sunshine Series on the opening day of the City of Palms Classic. An impressive athlete, Knox is quick off his feet and active and aggressive on the glass. For his size (6-7), Knox has a good skill level and has clearly spent a considerable amount of time working on his ball handling. Knox finished with 27 points and 12 rebounds. (Scout.com)

Seventh Woods' and Jalek Felton's teams to face each other

Future Heel Brandon Robinson Evolving

Covering basketball recruiting can sometimes be a tough job. Some kids never answer the phone or texts. Some won't do interviews, period, unless you catch them in person. Even then, some of them might sneak out. Some won't really offer up much information in response to the best probing questions....Brandon Robinson does not fit into that category. He's an open book.

Report: Roy Williams visits 2017 center Mohamed Bamba

Some of the biggest names in coaching have passed through the Westtown (Pa.) School in recent days to watch Mohamed Bamba, the 6-foot-11 Class of 2017 big man. North Carolina coach Roy Williams was in on Tuesday. Bamba, who has a 7-foot-8 wingspan according to Scout.com, is also being courted by the likes of Duke, Kentucky and Syracuse. (Zag's Blog)

Rawle Alkins scores 51 points in game, 33 in second half

Rarely do you see high school players score more than 30 points in a game. The quarters are shorter, there is no shot clock, and there is generally less scoring. On Sunday, class of 2016 shooting guard Rawle Alkins dropped 51 points at the Bluegrass Showcase in Lexington, Ky. Yes, 51. (Carolina Blue)

With UNC offer, life changes quickly for Rechon Black

Three days earlier, Roy Williams had come to Harrisburg to watch Rechon play against Hickory Ridge. And when the Blacks called Williams Thursday, “He said that in North Carolina history, there were only three kids that had been offered scholarships as sophomores, and that was Reggie Bullock, Kendall Marshall...” Williams paused. “...and Rechon Black,” Rechon's father recalled. (Concord Independent Tribune)

Roy Williams offers 2017 center Jeremiah Tilmon

Jeremiah Tilmon, a 6-10, 235-pound center in the 2017 class, got a call from Roy Williams on Thursday evening. Tilmon took a break from studying for finals to hear the North Carolina coach extend a Tar Heel scholarship offer. Williams was at La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere to see Tilmon on Wednesday night, watching the talented post player score 20 points in a win. (Inside Carolina)
