Olympic’s Trojans are back on top of the Sweet 16. The Trojans are the reigning N.C. 4A state champs.

Last season, Olympic finished 30-0 and nationally ranked, but graduated nearly all of its top players. Despite that, coach Ty Baumgardner has rebuilt around senior guard C.J. Jackson, who was a major contributor in last year’s title run. Jackson is averaging 27 points per game and Olympic has won six straight. Included in that streak is a win over Ardrey Kell at the Wild Wings Cafe Hoops Classic. Ardrey Kell is the only team to beat Olympic this season.
