Knights At A Glance

No player last spring had a more dominating performance in a state-championship game than 6-10 SR center Wendell Carter – one of the nation’s top four seniors – whose 30 points and 20 rebounds propelled Pace past Manchester 65-43 in the Class AA final at Macon. The Knights, without Carter for three games at the Chick-Fil-A Classic in Columbia, S.C., wobbled to a 2-8 start, but head coach Demetrius Smith didn’t panic and Pace regained its confidence as Carter averaged 21.6 points, 13.6 boards and 5,5 blocks. Second-team All-State selection Isaiah Kelly, a 6-7 JR forward, provides a reliable compliment.
