The 2016 Raising Cane’s Desert Challenge returns to Rancho Solano Prep with a lineup featuring some of the top high school basketball talent in the country. Headlining the event is Findlay Prep from Henderson, NV. The Pilots will be led by recent Kentucky signee P.J. Washington. P.J. is joined by 3-Star prospect Donnie Tillman with offers from Utah, Boston College, and Grand Canyon among others. Coronado (NV) returns four starters from last season’s Division I Runner-Up team and will feature 7’0” Jr. Bryan Penn-Johnson.

Local programs bring considerable talent and high expectations into the Desert Challenge again this year. Perennial power Shadow Mountain is led by young talented sophomores Jovan Blackshear and Jaelen House. Former St. Mary’s star and newcomer Marcus Shaver, who recently committed to UC Santa Barbara, brings experience and talent to the backcourt for the Matadors. Apollo is led by an experienced backcourt with Division I commits Holland Woods (Portland State) and Dre Marin (Southern Utah), arguably the best guard duo in Arizona. Defending Division III State Champions Scottsdale Christian bring the reigning Small School Player of the Year in Reed Meyers along with emerging Sophomore forward Ethan Spry.
