Continues to Grow
A lot has been said about Mikey WilliamsMikeyWilliams6'3" | CGLake Norman Christian | 2023StateNC
at Lake Norman Christian but his backcourt mate, Trey GreenTreyGreen5'10" | PGLake Norman Christian | 2023State#139NationNC
, is just as lethal. Green and Williams are emerging as a top backcourt so far in the state after knocking off The Burlington School, 91-79, this past weekend. While Williams made a statement with 40 points on 13-of-20 shooting, so did Green with 25 points, including six 3-pointers. It helps Williams is ranked No. 1 in the class of 2023 and Green is No. 11 but one is certainly making their case that they may not be ranked high enough.
The duo overcame 23 points from Jamarii ThomasJamariiThomas6'1" | PGThe Burlington School | 2021StateNC
and 22 points from Howard commit Kuluel MadingKuluelMading6'10" | CThe Burlington School | 2021StateNC
as well. A backcourt matchup that many are asking for: Mikey WilliamsMikeyWilliams6'3" | CGLake Norman Christian | 2023StateNC

vs. Robert DillinghamRobertDillingham6'2" | PGCombine Academy | 2023State#70NationNC

of Combine Academy. That would make for an entertaining game.

Making Early Noise
Picking up where left off this summer with Team Curry, Bryce CashBryceCash6'5" | SFCharlotte Christian | 2023StateNC
is making waves with Charlotte Christian. He posted 23 points, seven rebounds and six assists in a 72-65 victory over Rabun Gap and a top 2022 prospect in Nate Brafford this past weekend. Brafford finished with 29 points, 10 rebounds, three blocks and three steals. Cash showed off his ability to do multiple things with his size and strength at 6-foot-5 as the Knights are off to a 2-0 start to the season. College coaches would be wise to track him now. He holds an offer from Liberty. Next up for them: United Faith Christian on Dec. 1.
