2022 WIBCA Showcase to feature 160 Washington high school prospects — all hoping to turn heads

Top players grades 9 through 12 will look to make an impression on college coaches, like 2B Davenport's Tennessee Rainwater: 'I’m trying to play against the best competition I can'

Tennessee Rainwater got his first name from his dad, Brandon Rainwater, who said it means “Mighty Warrior” in Cherokee. It’s a representation both of his family’s Cherokee Nation heritage, and of who he is and strives to be.

When Tennessee Rainwater, a bouncy 6-foot-6 junior talks with college basketball coaches, his name is one of the first things they’ll bring up.

“My dad said ‘if I give you a name like that, you’ve got to do something with it,” Tennessee Rainwater said. “So that’s what I plan to do.”

This weekend, the standout guard/forward will make yet another trip from Davenport, a small eastern Washington city of fewer than 2,000 residents, to the greater Seattle area to compete in the 19th annual WIBCA state basketball showcase, presented by WATTS Basketball.

It’s an event that divides 160 Washington high school basketball prospects — freshmen through seniors — up into a 10-team tournament Saturday and Sunday at Bellevue College and culminates with a championship game on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Coaches from the Division II, Division III, NAIA and junior college level are expected to attend.

The showcase, which is usually in the spring, took place in October for the first time due to COVID-19 restrictions. Before that, the event was dormant since 2019.

In October, Washington State signee Dylan Darling led an Eastern Washington team to the event championship. Darling went on to be named SBLive’s All-Classification State Player of the Year as a senior. He averaged more than 33 points, 8.5 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 4.4 steals per game and led his team back to the 4A state tournament — a season that drew a late offer from Washington State that flipped his commitment.

The event gives the 17 freshmen rostered an opportunity to make an impression on coaches at a young age and the 30 seniors who graduate in the next two months the chance to be seen in hopes of picking up a late offer. That’s why coaches like Evergreen of Vancouver’s Brett Henry urged their standout seniors to play.

“I wanted to try to get them one last look,” Henry said.

The bulk of the attendees, however, are sophomore or juniors, like Tennessee Rainwater.

Admittedly, Tenessee Rainwater started to get nervous about his recruiting prospects after his sophomore high school season was delayed to the spring, shortened with strict attendance restrictions.

He had a feeling his jump-out-the-gym athleticism and versatility as both a lead guard and capable post scorer would be of interest to colleges, but his chances to show that were limited.

Then a standout 2021 summer of AAU basketball with Eastern Washington elite started bringing in interest from college coaches. He followed that with a strong junior season, leading Davenport to a 17-6 record, which earned him a spot on SBLive’s 2B all-state first team.

Shortly after the season, Rainwater trekked across the state and packed in an 18-point showing in the WIBCA Futures Game in University Place in March and a head-turning weekend at the WATTS Basketball Showcase to one weekend.

His recruitment has picked up as he’s gotten more opportunities to play against top talent from Washington. Rainwater said he’s talking to Division I Idaho and Idaho State, Division II Central Washington and Division III Carroll College.

Now, just over a month later, he’s ready to make the most of another cross-state trip. When people learn his name, he wants to make sure they don’t forget it.

“To me right now, I’m trying to play against the best competition I can,” Tennessee Rainwater said. “That’s what gets me better and brings the best out of me. Playing against people from all around Washington and the best players, that’s honestly all I want to do."
