West Bladen’s Rahu Purdie has been selected to the All-Cape Fear Region Basketball First Team by the Fayetteville Observer.

Purdie has already been honored as the Four County Conference Player of the Year and as a North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association District 4 First Team selection. The senior guard has been an All-Conference selection for three consecutive years.

Purdie led the Knights to the Four County Conference Championship and to the Class 2-A Sectional Finals with an 18.5 scoring average. “I don’t know of a better guard in our area than Rahu,” said West Bladen Coach Travis Pait. “I really hope he gets some state-wide recognition.”

Purdie racked up 25 points in a big win over Lumberton in the Woodmen of the World Christmas Tournament. West Bladen went on to win the tournament, and Purdie was named the Most Valuable Player.

The 5-8 guard dished out 4 assists per game and shot 53 percent from the field and 79 percent from the foul line.

Purdie poured in 30 points in a tough loss at Heide Trask, then netted 29 points in a key win over Midway that snapped a 3-game losing streak for the Knights and began a 10-game conference winning streak.
