12:00 pm – Grace Christian vs. Asheville School
Grace Christian brings in talent that will be must-see and should start popping up more throughout the state. They are led by the strong senior guard duo of 2024 Quasim Oden and 2024 Steven McLeod, both of which can get downhill and be a strong presence on both ends of the court. They also have a rising star that could be in for a breakout season in a big way, as 2026 6’5 Michael Phillips has all the tools to be special. They go up against Asheville School, led by Trent McCallister. This is a team that is a bit unknown and will have plenty of new names to learn about. However, they will be bringing some intriguing size to the table, including 2026 6’8 Heimir Helgason. But also look for 2025 Cedric Kenan and company to lead the way.
1:30 pm – Berean Baptist vs. Caldwell Academy
Talk about possibly two breakout stars on the national level, 2026 Josiah Sanders has all the tools to be something incredibly special here in North Carolina and this could be his introduction to the country. But he will be going up against another national-level talent in 2025 Jaylen Cross, who is looking to make a statement in this game on the big stage. Both teams have incredible talent, as Berean Baptist brings tremendous size with 2024 Harold Lee and 2024 Daniel Mbaeteka. Caldwell though has plenty of talent surrounding Cross, with 2024 J3 Swindell, 2024 Ahmed Jawo, and others looking to capture the eyes of many in this intense and intriguing matchup.
3:00 pm – Concord Academy vs. The Burlington School
We spoke a lot about The Burlington School in Friday’s storylines, as this is a team that runs deep, has a lot of weapons, and can score/operate inside and out. They will continue to do the same, but the guard play will be one to watch with the firepower of 2024 Zion Walker, 2024 Jordan Durham, 2025 Cam Flippen, and others locking in against the new names for Concord Academy. 2024 Sean Birmingham will be the name to know, as the Indiana State commit could be in for a HUGE year with him being the go-to guy. He can score and facilitate, but he will have plenty of players around him that can score from multiple levels, whether inside and out.
4:30 pm – Northside Christian vs. Moravian Prep
Two teams back in action from Friday night, it will be interesting to see which team has the energy and comes out firing on Day 2 at the Carmel Tip Off. The guard battle between Northside’s Josh Bullock and Kyrell Shaw, among others, will be interesting to watch when they go up against Moravian Prep’s spread offense and ability to knock down shots. The energy and fire should be ready to roll in this game, as this should be an electric must-see game to start the afternoon session.
6:00 pm – Forsyth Country Day vs. Cannon School
Forsyth Country Day will be coming off an emotional night on Day 1 going up against Carmel Christian, but they won’t have any time to think about that game as they go up against Cannon and the firepower of 2024 Austin Swartz and 2025 Isaiah Henry. Swartz is an absolute show, as he continues to prove that he is one of the best offensive weapons in the country, and Henry is right there with him. This duo is looking to make a statement in hopes of a title run. But they will learn quickly against a deep and talent Forsyth Country Day that should be able to use their length to create havoc. Look for 2024 Bobby Cannon and 2024 Iverson King to really step up for their team in this one against a talented Cannon team.
7:30 pm – Carmel Christian vs. Gaston Christian
Carmel Christian and Gaston Christian… what a way to end the night and event on Saturday night. Carmel Christian is hoping to open the event with a Day 1 win, but they will have a quick turnaround against one of the top teams in the state in Gaston Christian. Gaston Christian has already been battled-tested and looking for all the smoke, as Coach Duhon brings a balanced and experienced group to the court with 2026 Cameron Newman, 2024 Gabriel Mabor, 2024 Joe Rhyne, and several others. They will have to go up against one of the newest duos in the state in 2024 Kameron Taylor and 2025 Bryce Slay.
