’19 SG Ralph Black

Despite playing in only 12 of 28 games during the 16-17 season, Black took his game to another level during his junior year with an increase in minutes and starting position. He led the team in made three-pointers (with 59) and second on the team in points and steals. Black was a MECKA-4A All-Conference selection. Even with the drastic improvement and winning the most improved team award this past season, Ralph looks to take his game to even bigger heights on both ends of the floor. 2017-18 averages: 24 MPG, 10.4 PPG, 3 RPG, 2.1 APG, & 2.2 SPG

’19 PG Brandon Beidleman

Last season Beidleman was the sixth man, backing up Cam Hamilton. During the 17-18 season, Beidleman was handed the ball to take over the program. He led the team in many statistical categories. Minutes, Points, Assists, Steals, FTs, FT%, and Deflections. He was voted team MVP this past season and was also a MECK-4A All Conference Selection. With a full year under his belt running the program, Beidleman knows what is asked of him and looks to further his impact as a player and coach on the floor for his team. 2017-18 averages: 28.8 MPG, 12.6 PPG, 2.0 RPG, 4.7 APG, & 2.7 SPG

’20 SF/PF Daniel Ransom

The sky is the limit for this rising junior. After playing JV during the 16-17 season, Ransom was pulled up to Varsity for his sophmore season, worked his way into the starting lineup by midseason, and led the team in rebounds as well as blocks. Random has a motor that doesn’t stop and a skillset that has improved with each passing day. Daniel will be one to keep an eye on going into the next two seasons. 2017-18 averages: 17.7 MPG, 7.2 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 0.6 APG, 1.1 SPG, & 1 BPG

’19 Forward Tre’Von Barnes

In the travel ball circuit, scouts and writers have compared him to a young Draymond Green, due to his well around game. He has also earned the name ‘Junkyard Dog’ within the team because of his physical play. Barnes is a bruiser that can run the floor and defend on the perimeter. As he continues to work on his post game, Barnes has added to his offensive game while improving his nice touch around (and away from) the basket. He will be someone to watch as he enters his senior season. 2017-18 averages: 10.6 MPG, 2.7 PPG, 2.5 RPG

’19 Forward Jheison Saunds

New to the city of Charlotte this past season, the New Jersey native was very raw and physical with his game. Under the tutelage of Head Coach Brian Frasier, Saunds has taken his game to new heights and expects more to come. This rising junior reminds Coach Frasier of the old school physical players who would rim-run while getting all the tough rebounds and baskets around the rim. He’s been working on his game everyday, both offensively and defensively. Saunds will definitely be a player to watch over the next two seasons. 2017-18 averages 11.7 MPG, 3.5 PPG, 3.7 RPG

’19 Forward Donald Hill

During his first year on Varsity, the coaching staff really didn’t know what to expect from Hill. As the season went on, coaches saw exactly what this player was going to be known for: rebounding. In his minutes, Hill made a huge impact in the paint with the second highest average in blocks and rebounds per game. Hill shows a sound understanding of the speed and physicality of the game. He looks to improve upon his game and continues to look for ways to help his teammates in any possible form. Keep an eye on this rising senior. 2017-2018 averages: 15.5 MPG, 4.5 PPG, 4 RPG

’21 Guard Courtney “Deuce” Blake

Blake will be a player to watch out for over the next three years. With great handle and shooting ability, Blake looks to take his talents to a new level and continue working on his game under the tutelage of Head Coach Brian Frasier. Blake is well-liked; he’s respected by his teammates and coaches. He has a hard work ethic and asks all the right questions as he continues to grow and develop in this game. There is a ton of upside for this guard that can play on or off the ball due to his unique of skill set. Keep on an eye out for this kid in the years to come.
