The contest between Northside Christian and Bull City Prep-Durham started off in a somewhat sluggish fashion but remained competitive throughout. After going back and forth for the duration of the quarter, Northside ended the first period with an 11-8 lead. However, the Knights only seemed to get better as this game carried onward. They found their footing in the second quarter, extending their lead to 33-18 going into the break. 6’3 ’21 Glynn Hubbard shined as the leader for Northside, but their entire team excelled within their individual roles, which led to a fairly lopsided victory. The Knights beat Bull City Prep-Durham by a score of 67-53.
6’9 ’24 Isaiah Sutherland (Northside Christian)
Though young and still developing, the appeal should be fairly obvious with Sutherland—especially as a long-term prospect. He’s a strong, aggressive, fluid athlete with great length and overall physical tools. Sutherland plays incredibly hard at all times and seems to naturally cause havoc as a defender and rebounder. He’s only going to continue to trend upward and should be a prospect for Division I programs to monitor over the foreseeable future.
6’3 ’21 Glynn Hubbard III (Northside Christian)
It’s fairly easy to identity the leadership of Hubbard with this group, as he seems to naturally assume the role on both ends of the floor. He sets the tone with his decision-making and, although capable of controlling the action as a scorer, does a great job of affecting all facets of the game within the team setting. Hubbard already holds multiple offers and certainly has the makings of a next-level player.
6’7 ’22 Jalen Mattocks (Northside Christian)
Although there were many productive contributors throughout this contest, Mattocks ability to consistently do the little things makes him extremely valuable for this group. He plays with a high motor, and utilizes his blend of length and strength to outwork opponents around the basket for rebounds. Mattocks alters shots very well inside and runs the floor hard in transition.
6’0 ’22 Adam Omar (Bull City Prep)
There were various different contributors for this Bull City Prep squad, but Omar was arguably their most reliable throughout this contest. He handled the ball well under pressure, made smart decisions as a playmaker, and offered a useful scoring presence. Omar is quick and changes directions well, which allows him to touch the paint and make plays with regularity.
