The High Point University Panthers(Purple Panthers) stomped Appalachian State last night 86-64, but App did put up a fight and they are fighting and playing baskeball with a busload of Guilford County kids this season, in 2012/2013 with:
Jay Canty(Ragsdale/Oak Ridge Military) he had 23 points last night vs. HPU
Michael Obacha(High Point Christian Academy) Obacha with 4 points and 2 boards for ASU, plus he and Canty are in the starting five for APP…
Frank Eaves(Page) Frank had 1 point coming off of the bench last night for the Mountaineers….
Mike Neal(Northern Guilford/Oak Ridge Military) DNP(Did not play) and sure why, he played a lot and even started many games last season for ‘Neers….
Jonathan Frye(High Point Central/Northern Guilford (DNP) Frye was at Tulane and the word was he had transferred back to the state of North Carolina and he was attending school at UNCW, where the man that originally recruited him to Appalachian, Buzz Peterson is coaching, but now Jonathan is on board, and soon to be hitting the boards and the scoreboard at Appalachian…Got the feeling he will be playing quite a bit as the year moves on…Same for Neal, one would assume….
JaIrus Simms(High Point Central/North Forsyth) was on the court and doing some things out there last night, for HPU…..
