The public high school basketball season (NCHSAA) is a few weeks away. Here’s a look at five backcourts that should impress in 2021-22 at the 1A level.


East Carteret - Shamel Baker Shamel Baker 6'0" | PG East Carteret | 2024 State NC (2024) and Jacob Nelson Jacob Nelson 6'1" | CG East Carteret | 2023 NC (2023)

Baker and Nelson were quite the 1-2 combination in the East Carteret backcourt and with the departure of Bennie Brooks Bennie Brooks 6'4" | CG East Carteret | 2021 State NC , one or both will need to step their production up after solid sophomore seasons. Baker put up 16.6 ppg, 4.3 apg, 2.8 rpg and 2.5 spg while Nelson averaged 7.8 ppg, 4.5 rpg and 2.2 spg as they went 10-0 in conference action before falling in the state tournament playoffs.

Heide Trask - Myron McKoy Myron McKoy 5'8" | PG Heide Trask | 2024 State NC (2024) and Isaac Turner Isaac Turner 5'7" | CG Heide Trask | 2023 NC (2023)

McKoy and Turner are two guards who might not be the biggest prospects, but they make up for it with their play on the floor. McKoy is a two-way threat that averaged 14.8 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 3.0 spg and 2.7 apg during his debut varsity season. Turner put up 12.4 ppg, 2.4 spg and 2.1 rpg and knocked down 32 percent of his 3-pointers as a disruptor on the wing Heide Trask
