Boys’ No. 12 Charlotte Latin Hawks

Head coach: Chris Berger (7th year as Charlotte Latin head coach)

Returning starters: Parker Julian (6-7, F, Sr.); Caleb Jordan (5-11, G, Sr.); Bates Jones (6-6, F, Jr.)

Why them?: The Hawks return a wealth of talent, led by seniors Parker Julian and Caleb Jordan, and have the talent to challenge, Providence Day, for the CISAA crown, and make a deep run in the playoffs again.
