"There is no 'i' in team but there is in win." - Michael Jordan
What’s good everybody, I hope all is well as we get into a busy weekend of basketball on The #HoopState Network. We have 3 games, 2 of which are free and we cannot wait to bring them to you live.
Friday Night @ 6:30 ➡️ Apex Friendship @ Fuquay-Varina ⤵️
Both of these teams are off to a hot start and have dynamic trios that lead the way. Apex Friendship is led by Kenny Noland, Luke Proctor, and Gabe Proctor as they are sitting at 3-0 with all 3 wins by 20+. They shoot the cover off of the basketball and are looking to prove themselves as one of the top teams in the 919 after a strong performance in the HoopState Fall League as Papa Pete’s Patriots.
The revitalization of Fuquay basketball is underway and they’re led by the trio of Mayar Wok, Sheick Samoura, and Ryan Maslow. They’ll have the size advantage in this one, we’ll see if they can capitalize in a big time 919 matchup. After years of not making the playoffs this Fuquay team has a chance to give this school an opportunity to cement themselves as a high level program in the RDU area.
Saturday @ 3:30 ➡️ Lake Norman Christian @ Shining Light Academy ⤵️
Lake Norman Christian just underwent a coaching change and in their first game under Pat McCarthy they lost a close one on the road @ Victory Christian. Obviously Mikey Williams is a huge headliner along with Trey Green, Jon Kurtas, AJ Allenspach, Joyful Hawkins, and Shane Fernald.
Shining Light is led by the duo of Nasir Gibbs and Will Rhoades as Harold Cone looks to build a program in year one at the helm.
Miles Masercola will be on the call for this one.
Saturday @ 5:00 ➡️ The Burlington School @ Greensboro Day ⤵️
A clash of Titans in the 336 will be going down live early Saturday evening as The Burlington School looks to take down Greensboro Day in the house that Freddy Johnson built.
There’s elite talent all over the floor. Jamarii Thomas, Nik Graves, Kuluel Mading, Mike Zanoni, etc. This is a matchup that will bring bragging rights to the winner in all of the triad.
