Forsyth Country Day Flexes
Posted Feb 12, 2007
In a game featuring numerous future Division I players, Forsyth Country Day of Lewisville, N.C., knocked off a major rival.
CARY, N.C. - Two of North Carolina’s best teams met Thursday night and provided what might be a preview of a final four game in the North Carolina Independent School 3A playoffs. It provided an exciting game and a great view of several Division1 recruits and potential recruits.
Top-ranked Forsyth Country Day (30-2) visited third ranked Cary Academy (22-4) on Cary’s Senior Night, and escaped with a 60-59 victory. Each of the talented seniors took turns controlling the game. First,
, a 6-footer who signed with Charlotte, showed her interior strength and defensive ability to lead FCD to a first quarter lead.
Cary Academy came back behind the all-court game of
, a UNC-Wilmington signee. The Chargers used Blackwell on the wing for to set up their offense; she used drives and pull up jumpers to help Cary to take a one-point halftime lead.
, Cary Academy’s 5-8 point guard used her blazing speed and unlimited range to push the Charger’s lead to 12 point at the end of three quarters. But in the forth quarter, Carter and
, a 6-2 forward signed by Old Dominion, used their superior post moves to chip away at the lead. When Blackwell fouled out with 3:21 left in the game, FCD was able to gain the lead.
The game features some future players of note as well.
, a 6-0 junior wing showed flashes of her potential and super-quick point guard Najet Quardad has a shot despite her diminutive 5-2 frame. And watch out for Dara Brown, a 6-0 sophomore from Cary Academy, who shows great potential for the future.
Carter led all scorers with 29 points while Voronina added 16. Blackwell led Cary Academy with 18 points; Bryelle Smith, a Clemson signee, chipped in with 15.
