The 2nd round of the NCHSA Tournament is underway and we are truly excited about the matchups that will be taking place. As usual there were a few upsets in the first round but for the most part the higher seeds survived and advanced which leads us to some big time matchups.

Pender vs Henderson Collegiate: Pender was disqualified from the playoffs last season so this is their first state playoff challenge and they have a tall task as they will be on the road against the regional champs from last year. Henderson Collegiate Guard Kalib Matthews has been as good as advertised, taking home the Conference Player Of The Year Award and is definitely one of the top seniors in the state. Pender will need a big time performance from their Senior Guard Jajuan Carr as well as Sophomore Jakwon Moore if they hope to pull of this upset as both players can go for 20-30 points.

Wilson Prep vs East Carteret: Wilson prep picked up a big time win in dramatic fashion over Voyager Academy and will need another good game to pull of a win at ECHS. East Carteret Junior Wing Bennie Brooks
