Before his junior year, University of Alabama basketball commitment Shannon Hale transferred to North Carolina's Christ School, a basketball powerhouse known for producing the Plumlee brothers who play for Duke.

Hale, a 2013 recruit, and the rest of the team came up short this year and lost in the state semi-finals. But it proved to be a productive season that helped the future Crimson Tide star improve his game.

“The season went pretty good,” Hale said. “It was what I expected. I think I did pretty well. During the year, I tried to improve on rebounding and scoring inside, and I was just trying to help my team win.”
