Now, we look to break down each game and what to watch!

7:30PM – Carmel Christian vs. JL Chambers

The highlight of the night and a great way to end a great day of basketball in Charlotte, two of the top teams and title contenders square up to not only secure a big win but to hold some bragging rights as well! 

Carmel Christian and JL Chambers, a game that you will not want to miss whether it is in person or on our livestream.  The amount of talent on the court for this one will be incredible and certainly will be fun to watch.  When you first start with Carmel Christian, you have to look at 2022 Belmont commit Cade Tyson, who is putting up POY type numbers this season in helping him lead his team.  But he hasn’t been doing it all on his own, with players like 2022 Logan Threatt, 2022 Luke Krawczyk, 2023 Kaleb Siler, 2022 Nyles Howard, and several others getting it done on both ends of the court.  They play extremely well on both ends of the court and have shown they can score in a variety of ways, especially with Coach Badgett leading the way.

JL Chambers is another top-tier program in the state and certainly have their eyes set on a title as well and why shouldn’t they.  2023 Jaylen Curry is an absolute show on the court leading the way with his speed, his scoring ability, and his vision.  Alongside of him is South Carolina commit, 2022 Daniel Sanford, who is also putting up some strong numbers and showing why he is one of the top players in his class for NC.  But you also have to add the shot-making of 2023 Nick Dorn, a fast-rising prospect, 2022 Antoine Piper, 2024 Maurio Hanson, and several others as all can and have stepped up for this team this year.

Again, this will be an absolute show and a game loaded with premier talent!  It may be one of the best games of the season, all going down on Saturday in Charlotte!
