Slam Dunk Contest

The field for the second ever I’m Possible Training Shore Sports Network Dunk Contest is set for Thursday at Pine Belt Arena in Toms River. The contest will take place at halftime of the boys Senior All-Star Game, which begins at 7:45 p.m.

Below are the six contestants for Thursday night’s contest, five of whom will be competing in the contest for the first time. All six have confirmed their participation, but the lineup will be subject to change.

 

Scottie Lewis

School: Ranney

Class: 2019

Height: 6’5″

Bio: The defending champion in the contest, Lewis is one of the most exciting players to pass through the Shore Conference in a long time. He is considered a five-star recruit who already has offers from programs like Kansas, Florida, Maryland and Villanova, as well as N.J. locals Rutgers and Seton Hall. Kentucky has also shown interest. Lewis averaged 16.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and two blocks as a sophomore and was a First-Team All-Shore selection by the coaches.

 

Bryan Antoine

School: Ranney

Class: 2019

Height: 6’5″

Bio: Another five-star recruit from Ranney, Antoine made Shore history this past season when he became the first ever player from the Shore Conference to reach the 1,000-point milestone for his career as a sophomore. He finished third in the conference in scoring at and even 21 points per game and helped lead the Panthers to their second straight 22-win season. Like Lewis, Antoine has received offers from some of the nations top programs.

 

Travis Holland

School: Toms River North

Class: 2018

Height: 6’5″

Bio: Holland settled in nicely in his first season as a varsity regular for the Mariners and served as the team’s tallest weapon. He averaged 8.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.6 steals while becoming a force on the defensive end with his length and athleticism. With Toms River North losing three key starters next year, Holland will be among the players to carry the mantle for the Mariners next season.

 

Jaden Rhoden

School: Toms River North

Class: 2017

Height: 6’2″

Bio: One of the Shore’s top players this season, Rhoden led Toms River North to its best season in program history by averaging 15.8 points, 10.2 rebounds (third in the Shore) and 4.2 assists per game. He was a First Team All-Shore selection and the Class A South Player of the Year, according to the Shore Conference coaches and will also be participating in the Senior All-Star Game.

 

Jared Kimbrough

School: Neptune

Class: 2018

Height: 6’6″

Bio: Kimbrough was a force of nature during his junior season, which turned out to be his breakout season as a Shore Conference star. The junior forward averaged 14.7 points while finishing second in the Shore Conference in both rebounds (11.8) and blocked shots (3.0). Some Division I interest has begun to trickle in for Kimbrough, including looks from Farleigh Dickinson and LaSalle.

 

Nasiem Brantley

School: Howell

Class: 2018

Height: 6’3″

Bio: Brantley returned to Howell from Georgia last season and brought an element of explosiveness to the Rebels lineup. In his first full year with the team this past season, he averaged 17.6 points and 6.1 rebounds with, of course, some highlight reel throw-downs mixed in. Brantley is also a standout receiver for the football team and is receiving college interest in both sports.
