This game is one that we feel could have some fireworks to it, there are players from each class that are college prospects from both squad. Fans from Pender and fans of New Life should make the trip over to Village Christian to check this one out without a doubt. 

Pender HS is a program that made some noise last season and should have a very nice year this season as they are a year older and have gained some nice talent in transfers and players moving up from middle school.

2020 Guard Jajuan Carr is the highest ranked prospect on this squad as of now, he is a talented 2020 prospect that can score the ball and is athletic. 2019 Guard Chance Poole will look to make some noise in his senior season for the squad as he will spend quite a bit of time on and off the ball. Poole is a pass first type of guard which is something this team will need. 2021 Guard Kahlil Marshall is another talented player in the very loaded NC 2021 class that can score the ball in bunches, we look for Marshall to take that next step in production this season.

New Life Christian is a team that is deep with talent and college prospects, 2019 Wing Latrell Jones is a player that has caught the attention of college coaches already. 2019 Forward/Center Jalen Love is a player who JUCO programs should be showing interest in, he still has some room to grow but has nice upside. The 2020 Class for New Life Christian is loaded, Guards Phil Martin & Reggie Walton are both players that D2 programs should be all over. 2020 Wing Reggie Raynor and 2020 Forward Jeremyah McWilliams are all next level prospects as well as 2020 Guard Dahaun Jones who is a spark plug off the bench for the Monarchs. 

If you’re a college coach of any level program, this is a game that you will want to be at without a doubt, plenty of good prospects in a highly competitive atmosphere.
