- Sheldon Huskies
- Marcus Bagley (2020): The #1 player in Norcal is having a monstrous junior season and offers are rolling in. Recent offers include the University of Pittsburg and Long Beach St.
- Josh Morgan (2019): The Long Beach St. signee will need to protect the rim against a hand full of high fliers on the Vikings.
- Justin Nguyen (2019): Will be the quarterback for the team and will be responsible for setting up the pace and his teammates.
- Kaito Williams (2019): The CSU East Bay signee will look to be the scoring threat with his sweet 3 point shot.
- Other Notable Players: Marquis Hargrove, Xavion Brown, and Josh Williams
- Rainer Beach Vikings
- Marjon Beauchamp (2020): The #23 ranked player in the nation is an elite scorer with a deadly jump shot. A game that rembles Klay Thompson. Currently holds offers from practically every west coast school.
- Jamon Kemp (2019): A elite defender that does a little bit of everything. Just like his pops Shawn Kemp, Jamon plays well above the rim. Currently holds offers from Washington State & University of San Diego.
- Micah Monroe (2019): Super athletic wing that does all the little things. Played summer ball with Marjon and Jamon for the last 2 summers.
- Kenny Curtis (2019): Maybe the X-factor of this game at only 5’8, he has a sweet 3 point shot with NBA range. Players may forget about him as they key in on Marjon and Jamon.
