Dorman HS vs High Point Academy (Spartanburg) 8:00 P.M.
The Cavaliers lost their season opener earlier in the week to Charlotte Christian. The Cavaliers the defending back to back Class 5A State Champions played without the services of P.J. Hall (2020) #1 player in the Palmetto State Rankings. Myles Tate ranked #2 player in the Palmetto State behind Hall will have to pickup the slack early on this season. Ta’Lon Cooper a Morehead State University signee and Kamal Desor fresh off a football season with the Cavaliers.
High Point Academy plays in the Class 1A ranks in the Palmetto State. The fairly new charter school has a talented group back for Head Coach Marcus Watts. The Grizzlies are current (2-2) on the young season with losses to Traveler’s Rest HS and Blacksburg HS. Jayden Byrd (2020) has been a fixture here since we first saw him play as 9th grader for the Grizzlies.
