The New Castle high school team is know as the Trojans. Kent Benson and Steve Alford were the NBA players from New Castle.

How many Duke or NC players played high school basketball in NC?
In the last 100 years, no state has had more impact on basketball (high school and college) than Indiana, with a close second place to Kentucky. North Carolina comes in around 5th or 6th and that is really only in the last 30 years that NC is relevant.
