HSBBB: Whale Branch star Pringle picked for Carolinas Classic

The honors continue to roll in for Whale Branch boys basketball star Nick Pringle, who on Wednesday was announced as part of the South Carolina team for the 2020 Carolinas Classic All-Star Basketball Games. 

Pringle is one of 10 players selected for the South Carolina boys team, which will square off against a team of North Carolina all-stars on March 28 in Wilmington, N.C. The Wofford signee was the only area player selected this season but is the second in the past three years. Bluffton’s Jermaine Patterson was picked in 2018.

A 6-foot-8, 200-pound, forward, Pringle will get a chance to play alongside some outstanding talent for the Palmetto State squad. He will be joined by Emorie Knox (Myrtle Beach), Kelton Talford (Great Falls), Patrick Iriel (AC Flora), Myles Tate (Dorman), PJ Hall (Dorman), Latavian Lawrence (Gray Collegiate), Ja’von Benson (Ridge View), Kaleb Mack (Mauldin), and Raekwon Horton (Keenan). 

Pringle is averaging 15.2 points and 10.9 rebounds for the Warriors, who won the Region 5-2A title and are set to open the Class 2A playoffs at home Wednesday, Feb. 19.
