It was a terrific season for many private school programs around North Carolina, so Phenom Hoops is taking a look back a few to provide a recap of the season they had.

We first take a look at Concord Academy, led by their head coach Frank Cantadore.  The Eagles finished with a 21-8 overall record and 5-2 in conference play, which ultimately helped seal up the No. 1 seed in the 3A Division this year. 

This is a program that has an array of talent, which ultimately helped them secure some big wins.  Some of which came in Phenom Hoops’ events but also continued to find success throughout the rest of the season, racking up some big wins vs. Trinity Christian, Greensboro Day, Northside Christian, Gaston Christian, Westminster Catawba, and coming away with a tournament win down in Florida.

Even though Concord Academy came up short in their efforts of a state championship, this team was fun to watch offensively, averaging nearly 70 points per game.  Lipscomb commit Trae Benham was the leader offensively, averaging nearly 20 points per game and showing his range and scoring impact on the floor, knocking down 86 3-pointers this season.

Seniors Javian Cannady and Tyler Fearne also played well this year, as Cannady provided a nice two-way impact on the floor, really being a swiss-army knife for the Eagles while Fearne brought nice size and the ability to stretch the floor as well with his outside shooting.

Junior Logan Threatt was a nice addition this season for Concord, as the point guard scored the ball effectively, used his speed out in transition, and helped lead the charge in finding his teammates with 4.4 assists per game.  Expect his numbers to continue to rise next season at Concord.

This season also gave us a chance to watch a few new names in Sergej Cvetkvic, who is a 6’7 shooter, and Nikola Mircic, a 6’10 developing big.  Junior Tucker Johnson was a name that started to appear more in the boxscores, really being a strong force on the boards.  Let’s not forget senior KJ Perry, who was a nice role player, and freshman Langston Boyd, who averaged seven points in 10 games and should be a bigger name as he continues to grow.

It was another year in which the Eagles notched a 20+ win season, something they have been able to do since the 2011-12 season.  Even with a few guys leaving after this, expect Concord to be back as a competitor once again, and huge congrats to them after a successful season.
