JD Johnson has Cape Fear Christian Rolling at the Start of his First Season There
JD Johnson took over the reigns from Dwight Miller at Cape Fear Christian Academy before the start of the season and he has them playing at an extraordinarily high level to start the season. The backcourt of EJ Bethea and Riley Adams are in total control, complimenting one another’s games very well, playing efficient ball. Michael Okoye is the anchor of the defense with his excellent rim protection capabilities and touch around the basket, finishing dump-off passes from Bethea and Adams when they get into the teeth of the defense. Their role guys Marcus Owens, and Lucas Capalbo found a way to contribute as well, knocking down shots and initiating offense. This team just has a great synergy between their play style and personnel, they’re a joy to watch and a team to follow throughout the season.
First Love Christian (PA) Is An Absolute Wagon
First Love came into the HoopState with a point to prove, and they did in their beatdown of Moravian Prep. Led by a lineage of talent all around the court with 5’11 2020 Isaiah Wilson being arguably the best of the bunch in this contest. The silky smooth guard was relentless in his attack, scoring the ball, and finding his guys 6’7 2019 JaMier Fletcher (Offers from Depaul and Kent State), and 6’5 2020 DJ Gordan. This team is fun to watch and should attract attention from coaches from all ranks up to High Major. If you have the opportunity to check them out make sure you do!
Aymeric Toussaint and Freedom Christian Are Starting To Find Their Way
After a tough loss in which they gave up a double digit lead with under two minutes remaining Freedom had a major bounce back performance against Wayne Country Day this morning. Yesterday it was Brandon Murray, today it was Aymeric Toussaint and Manrique Alverado leading the way on both ends of the court. Toussaint is one of the most intriguing prospects in the state of North Carolina with his incredible combination of length, touch, and mobility that make him a hot commodity among regional D1s. Alverado showcased his ability to knock down shots, and run his team, making excellent reads on the offensive end of the court to go with vocal leadership. This is a group that’s going to get better as the season goes along, it should be fun to watch.
