CBS/MaxPreps Xcellent 25 Boys High School Basketball Rankings

Courtesy of Jim Stoudt and and we only have one North Carolina team in here this week and that is Northside Christian, out of Charlotte, N.C.(#6)….You can see the church and the school right when you enter Charlotte…On the right hand side going in and just off of Sugar Creek Road, I think it is….Northside Knights, I think they are and they are coached by Byron Dinkins, who used to be Keith Gatlin’s assistant coach over at Wesleyan….I remember taking teams down to Northside back in the 89’s when they were not as well known as they are now….They had some good soccer, basketball, cross country, baseball and other teams back them..Last softball game I ever coached was at Northside and I would love to have that one back…Might have spent the night in jail over that one, who knows……
