The NCISAA Conference schedule is almost upon us. Here’s a look at some early favorites in the NCISAA 3A Early Favorites, 1st Edition. 


High Point Christian Academy 13-3

High Point Christian Academy has won eight games and counting as they head into conference play. Unsigned seniors Ethan Smith and Thomas McIntosh Thomas McIntosh 6'7" | SF High Point Christian | 2022 State NC are double-double machines and 2023 guard Darius Kane Darius Kane 6'2" | CG High Point Christian | 2023 State NC is an electric guard to keep an eye on with this group. 2024 guard Darius Caldwell Darius Caldwell 6'3" | CG High Point Christian | 2024 NC is also one to watch with his ability to attack off the perimeter/wing. They’ll kick off their conference schedule tonight on the road with a contest against Westchester Country Day. 

Asheville School 9-3

Asheville School is a squad to keep an eye on as the conference schedule approaches. They’re off to a 1-0 start in the NCISAA Carolinas Conference with 2023 big man Gus Yalden leading the way for them on both ends of the floor. He’s a versatile forward with high major offers and interest already that’s coming back from an injury quite nicely. Kaiden Holdbrook and Michael Mora are two other 2023 names to keep an eye on with this group as well.
