Does the name Keith Belfield ring any bells. He is better then every freshman you have listed he plays the 1,2, and 3. He is a a 6"5 freshman at Concord Cannon, and you might one to see him play because this tournament is missing out on alot. This kid is good and your missing out on alot you'll see what your missing out on.

Sorry - there are many missing from this list. You have to understand how much many of these players daddys have to do with their selection of players.

Hey man. Josh Benoit, Dallas Best, Dorian Hines and Marquez Jones from Kinston High should get some consideration. They did help win a state championship this year, and they all are sophomores buddy. The kid Wyatt from Greenville Rose should have an eye kept out for him as well.

Three other combo guards from NCISAA 1A Greenfield School missing--everyone will see 08-09 season (Word of God; twice). Most of these guys on list are very deserving
