This past weekend we had the opportunity to check out the action at Coast2Coast’s Music City Premier event in Nashville, Tennessee. The event was co-sponsored with the Nashville Youth Basketball Association, and although a majority of the teams in attendance were from the region, there were several teams from the Midwest including Illinois, Michigan and Ohio.

Over the course of the weekend we spotted over 40 kids who logged in standout performances. However, there were a handful of kids that really impressed us such as Keylon Thomas (4’11”/PG/2032/Nashville, TN), Harrison Knotts (4’4”/PG/2033/Marietta, GA), Damani Oliver (5’0”/PG/2029/Detroit, MI), MJ Dean (4’2”/PG/2033/Rome, GA), Dontay Chivers (5’7”/PG/2028/Dayton, OH) and Chris Pollintz (6’1”/2028/Toledo, OH). Below is our complete list of standouts.
