The Piedmont region of North Carolina is home to some of the basketball players in the state from top to bottom. We take a look at some of the Division II prospects in the region in this article.
Malcom Wade 6’0 PG United Faith (Charlotte)-Sees the floor well, finds open teammates and deft at scoring the ball. Wade is a 1,000 point scorer during his career.
Caleb Mauldin 6’6 PF West Rowan HS-Nice size at 6’8 with big shoulders, very skilled post. Great feet & hands w/ touch out to 18′. He is a stretch-four player at the next level and can consistently knock down the three-point shot.
Kabian McClendon 6’4 SG West Lincoln HS-College ready body, takes the lead as being the go-to-guy, knows how to score and has a high basketball IQ.
Cooper Crawford 6’1 SG Hough HS-Gym rat who does all of the little things really well, understands the game, gets rebounds, does what it takes to win.
Tripp Greene 6’1 CG Greensboro Day-Tripp is a player that coaches love simply because he brings all the intangibles that you want from your PG, defensively he gives it’s a 100% and has solid lateral quickness and hands. Tripp is what many would call a ‘‘pesky’’ defender, you may get one step on him but he recovers quickly and contains his opponent very well. Had a great game in the NCISAA finals in another win for Greensboro Day
Blake Wilson 6’5 W Hunter Huss-Long wing at 6’6 who can score in bunches and grabs rebounds. Causes offense to change shot selection with size.
Prince Lemon 5’10, PG Queens Grant (Charlotte)-speedy PG with good vision and ability to hit the pull up. He is a high academic student-athlete. He is a fierce competitor and tireless defender.
AJ Gallagher 6’6″ F Queens Grant (Charlotte)-big kid (220lbs) with college ready body. He can bang down low or step out with range…very good on “pick and pop”. Tenacious rebounder and shot blocker.
