Phoebus hoops’ Khyree Temple soars over Peninsula


PORTSMOUTH, Va.  (WAVY) — Khyree Temple of the Phoebus Phantoms has caught the eye of many across Hampton Roads because of his high-flying dunks. He’s looking for the highlight reel slam every time he touches the ball. 

“When I’m on a fast-break in my head, when I’m gone, I’m thinking about what dunk should I do,” says Temple. 

But he’s more than just dunks. 

The 6-foot-6 forward leads the team in assists, rebounding, as well as points. He’s also led the Phantoms to an 18-2 record, which leads the Peninsula District. 

This comes after he spent much of last year as a spectator, missing nine games due to a broken left leg.

And unknown to many, Temple didn’t even see a doctor. He left the broken leg to heal all on its own. 

With a multi-dimensional game that can really wow, he’ll look to lead the Phantoms into the history books by bringing home Phoebus’s first boys basketball state title.
