The NCISAA 2021-22 season is right around the corner. Take a look at some backcourt prospects to keep an eye on at the NCISAA 1A level.

 

Greenfield School: CJ Alston CJ Alston 5'11" | CG Greenfield | 2023 State NC & Matt Kirby Matt Kirby 5'9" | CG Greenfield | 2023 State NC & Kyshon Atkinson Kyshon Atkinson 5'11" | CG Greenfield | 2022 State NC

Alston, Kirby and Atkinson are a trio that has the potential to be very good together in 2021-22 at Greenfield School. Kirby and Atkinson are newcomers while Alston returns after playing the lead guard spot in 2020-21. Alston is an underrated finisher and playmaker that can knock down shots on the perimeter. Kirby and Atkinson are two quick guards in NC’s 2023 class that starred on Team DGBH this past grassroots season. Kirby has the ability to get to his spots on all three levels off the bounce while Atkinson should excel as the top defender in the backcourt. 

United Faith Christian Academy: Xavier McKelvy Xavier McKelvy 6'2" | CG United Faith Christian | 2022 State NC & Landon Johnson Landon Johnson 6'4" | CG United Faith Christian Academy | 2022 State NC (2022s) & Lance Gill Lance Gill 6'3" | CG United Faith Christian Academy | 2023 NC (2023)

United Faith Christian Academy looks to return to the 1A State Title game with new leadership in head coach Tamar Slay. Slay will have McKelvy and Landon Johnson Landon Johnson 6'4" | CG United Faith Christian Academy | 2022 State NC back and also add Lance Gill Lance Gill 6'3" | CG United Faith Christian Academy | 2023 NC
