Bengals At A Glance

Coach Freddy Johnson has 1,104 career wins (all at Greensboro Day) and 11 NCISAA state titles since 1977, coached in the McDonald’s and Jordan Brand all-star games and received the Morgan Wootten Award from the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020 – but this marks his first City of Palms appearance, a self-described “bucket list item” for the eighth-winningest coach in national high school basketball history. But whether it’s a pair of all-staters, sharp-shooting Mercer commit 6-5 SR Michael Zanoni (12.9 ppg, 3.7 rpg) and 6-4 JR Jaydon Young (11.8 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 3.8 apg), or athletic point guard and UNC-Charlotte pledge 6-3 SR Nik Graves (6.9 ppg, 4.4 apg) or rim-protectors like Princeton-bound 6-10 SR C.J. Collins and Navy commit 6-7 SR Jackson Noble, the Bengals have earned their invitation with one of the most balanced lineups around. … A deep junior class also includes re-classified 6-4 JR Julius Reese, Jr., and transfer 6-6 JR Graham Worland (17.5 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 2.2 apg at Cornelius Hough NC), and touted 6-5 FRESH Addison Newkirk (16 ppg, 7 rpg, 3 apg at Caldwell Academy NC as an eighth-grader) could make an immediate impact.
