Gaston Christian 65 – Rabun Gap 42

GC: Gabriel Mabor 18pts, 14rebs, 3asts, 3blks/ Cameron Newman 13pts, 4asts, 4rebs/ Joe Rhyne 9pts, 4rebs, 5asts
RG: Zayne Vernon 12pts, 7rebs/ Andia Siamashvili 10pts, 6rebs/ Rares Trandafir 8pts, 5rebs, 1blk


2024 Gabriel Mabor (Gaston Christian): Another day but the same story for Mabor, as he physically dominated the paint all game long as well as put his stamp on the boards. Time after time, he controlled the paint with his frame and size, creating second-chance points, finishing with touch around the basket, and being a defensive presence as well. He continues to rack up double-doubles throughout the season, and he was the leader once again on Day 1.

2024 Andia Siamashvili (Rabun Gap): Siamashvili had a good overall impact on the court for his team. He understands how to use his size well, created and showed touch in the paint as well as stepping out with comfort from the perimeter. He also impacted the game on the boards, stepping up when his team needed him.

Forsyth Country Day 73 – Concord Academy 69

FCDS: Bobby Cannon 21pts, 10rebs/ Q Williams 22pts, 6asts, 4stls/ Jahon Foster 10pts
CFA: Ian Howard 16pts/ Jake Benham 15pst, 6asts, 3rebs/ Sean Birmingham 13pts, 5rebs


2026 Q Williams (FCDS): Williams led the charge for his team in a strong win, as he excelled in attacking and penetrating the defense, finishing strong off the dribble, getting multiple paint touches, and finishing through contact while also getting to the line. True leader on the floor and playmaker, as he played at a high level to help his team. Strong dribble and IQ point guard.

2025 Ian Howard (Concord Academy): Howard really stepped up offensively for his team, leading the charge with 16 points. Howard continues to thrive in making plays off the dribble, driving and getting to the rim, finishing with touch but also being able to knock down open shots. You can see his confidence is growing game by game with this team, and has been having a good season.

Central Cabarrus 84 – The Burlington School 55

CC: Carson Daniel 22pts, 7asst, 5rebs/ Desmond Kent 20pts, 15rebs, 5blks/ Chase Daniel 12pts, 10rebs, 5asts
TBS: Zion Walker 25pts, 7rebs/ King Gibson 10pts, 5rebs/ Jordan Durham 10pts

2024 Desmond Kent (Central Cabarrus): Kent was tremendous with his overall impact on both sides of the court. He uses his length extremely well, keeps the ball high, and has great touch in finishing around the basket and at the rim. But his activity level on the boards and also altering shots is impressive, as he filled up the stat sheet tonight.

2024 Zion Walker (TBS): Walker is a competitor on the court. He continues to thrive as one of the best physical guards in the state, creating things out of nothing, finding ways to get inside the paint, finish or create contact, and get to the line consistently. Walker also is a tremendous competitor on the defensive end as well, as he finished with 25 points to lead his team.
