The Cox Mill Chargers (4-0) absolutely throttled the Sun Valley Spartans (2-3) 80-40 on Tuesday night behind the play of Duke Signee Wendell Moore and UNC Charlotte Signee Caleb Stone-Carrawell. Let’s take a look at some of the standouts from the nights action.
6’5 2019 Wendell Moore: Cox Mill High School (Duke Signee) (26 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk, 8/11 From the Field, 4/5 From Three)
On a night where he was honored with a pre-game ceremony celebrating his achievements with USA Basketball, Wendell Moore was in total control in his attack, shooting the ball with a high level of confidence and always playing within himself at all times throughout the contest. He had some electrifying moments, including, but not limited to a high flying windmill slam that put the student section into a frenzy. He fits in incredibly well with his future teammates at Duke due to his versatility, ability to initiate offense for others, and just his general intangibles that make him such an attractive player to play with. Encouraging teammates, providing direction, and positive reinforcement are just a few things Moore does that adds to his value as a prospect that a lot of people don’t notice. I’m excited to see what he does at the next level.
6’7 2019 Caleb Stone-Carrawell: Cox Mill High School (UNC Charlotte Commit) (20 Pts, 3 Reb, 6 Ast, 3 Stl, 7/12 From the Field, 6/6 From the Line)
Carrawell is a super versatile wing that has a bevy of tools to work with that will benefit him at the next level. He’s always one step ahead of the game when it comes to moving the ball, finishing with six dimes on the night, Carrawell showed a knack for making the extra pass in the half court in order for his team to come away with an easy bucket. When he gets to UNC Charlotte expect the staff to work on his explosiveness off the bounce, if Caleb can ever add an ultra quick first step its going to be incredibly beneficial to his basketball career. He already has the touch, savviness, and natural physical gifts capable of succeeding at the next level, once he adds that quick first step to his game he should have a MAJOR impact at Charlotte in the years to come.
6’3 2019 Cody Cline: Cox Mill High School (10 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast, 4 Stl, 3/7 From the Field, 3/4 From the Line)
Cody Cline continued to play his role at the highest level for this Cox Mill team, as he’s done for going on three seasons. He’s been an integral piece for two consecutive state titles, with his willingness to do the dirty work, help run the team, and make life difficult for the opposition every night out. He’s a high level athlete with some crazy explosiveness and does a great job scoring the ball at all three levels when needed. Mid-High Level D2s should watch closely throughout the year due to his tenacity, willingness to do whatever it takes to win, and winning pedigree.
Other Top Performers:
6’1 2022 Jaquave Propst: Cox Mill High School (8 Pts, 4 Stl, 4/4 From the Field)
A young Freshman to watch, was extremely efficient and should be one of the guys to carry the torch when Wendell, Cody, and Caleb leave.
6’0 2019 Hunter Sedergren: Cox Mill High School (2 Pts, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 4 Stl)
Sedergren is a true glue guy for this group, providing a ton of depth with his ability to make the right play and hustle his heart out. A favorite among teammates for his effort.
6’3 2020 Michael Grovanz: Sun Valley High School (13 Pts, 1 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl)
Grovanz was his teams best offensive player with a smooth mid-range game, one to watch for D3s over the next 12 months. A smooth scorer that knows how to play the right way.
6’10 2020 Joe Flucus: Sun Valley High School (6 Pts, 5 Reb)
Flucus is an extremely raw prospect with some interesting tools. He has a chance to become a scholarship player if he continues to work on his understanding of the game and put some serious time towards skill development. A reclass/prep year would greatly benefit Flucus.
