Ranked #9 overall and #2 by position in the ESPNU Top 100, senior point guard Myck Kabongo is a nightmare for defenses in transition. Quick with the basketball and a consistent 3-point shooter, Kabongo averaged 17.1 points and 6.0 assists per game as a senior. The 2011 McDonald’s All-American is headed to the University of Texas to play his college ball.
The Pilots of Findlay Prep come to NHSI as the two-time defending champions and look to make it three in a row at this year’s tournament. Ranked #7 in the ESPN RISE FAB50, the team features three players rated in the ESPNU Top 100. In addition to Kabongo, this talented team includes University of Arizona-bound Nick Johnson (#23 ESPNU 100) and St. John’s-bound Amir Garrett (#95 ESPNU 100). Although the Pilots incurred three losses this year, Michael Peck’s squad ended Texas powerhouse Yates’ 66-game win streak in December and won the prestigious Montverde Academy Invitational tournament in January.
