Greensboro Day School is the preseason #24 team in the nation in the Preseason High School Basketball Poll from FloHoops.com…..
No. 24: Greensboro Day School (NC)
2016-17 Season Record (Result): 34-4 (NCISAA Class 3A State Champions)
2016-17 Final FloHoops Top 25 Ranking: 13
Key Player To Watch: 2018 SG John Newman (Clemson)
Outlook: Trying to replace the leadership and production of J.P. Moorman (Temple signee) and the stability at point guard with Jordan Perkins (NC Central) is not going to be easy. However, the Bengals still return plenty of experience from last season’s team, which won another state title and earned a DICK’s Nationals berth, and head coach Freddy Johnson found some impressive players to help reload the roster. Senior guards John Newman, Will Dillard, and Alex Michael are the foundation players, but expect transfer 2018 point guard Tripp Greene, who averaged 18 points per game at Forsyth Country Day last season, 2019 forward Nicholas Evtimov, and 2021 guard Carson McCorkle to have solid, contributing roles throughout the year.

Coach Freddy Johnson opens the season with a career record of 992-283 in 40 seasons, meaning that he should hit the 1,000 win milestone relatively early in the season.
