With the second half of the high school basketball season set to kick off this week, here’s a look at the 2nd edition of The Contender Series for the NCHSAA 2A level.


Farmville Central High (9-2)

Farmville Central High has won the last three 2A state crowns so it would be crazy to leave them out of The Contender Series. They’re off to a 3-0 start with Jah Short Jah Short 6'4" | CG Farmville Central | 2023 State NC (20.0 ppg) and Jayden Pitt Jayden Pitt 5'11" | PG Farmville Central | 2023 State NC (12.3 ppg) leading the attack. Senior guard Derrick Cox Derrick Cox 6'3" | CG Farmville Central | 2023 State NC (11.7 ppg) is another contributor to keep eyes on in the rotation. 2024 prospect Alex Moye Alex Moye 6'3" | SF Farmville Central | 2024 State NC is finding his stride as well in the paint. They’re their usual defensive-minded bunch that likes to get out and wreak havoc on the defensive side of the ball. 

Hendersonville High (13-1)

Hendersonville High is a one-loss squad with room to prove themselves as a 2A contender. They’ve won five games in a row since falling by a point to R-S Central back on Dec. 17. 2022 Dwight Canady Dwight Canady 6'0" | CG Hendersonville | 2022 State NC and 2023 Keenan Wilkins Keenan Wilkins 5'11" | CG Hendersonville | 2023 State NC are proving to be a solid backcourt duo once again as Canady is posting 26.6
