Laurinburg loaded with top prep talent

Laurinburg (NC) Prep is annually one of the country's top prep teams and this upcoming season should be no exception as they may have more talent than ever. They finished 40-2 and will add a who's who of high school talent to their rosters. Laurinburg also has a deep and talented high school team. They will be the first prep school team to ever play at the Slam Dunk to the Beach. They will also appear at the War on the Shore and may return to the Timberwolves Shootout at the Target Center.
