This weekend was filled with great high school hoops games from Kentucky targets and commits. Let’s go right into how our future Cats played.
If you have not been following Marcus Lee, start immediately because the 6’9″ stud is putting up ridiculous numbers. In one of the most highly touted games in California this season, Marcus Lee posted 30 points 15 rebounds 4 assists and 8 blocks in a 97-92 loss to Sheldon High School. He is super long, super athletic, and plays “angry” on the court especially hitting the boards. He has the same type of in game intensity you saw from last year’s Cats. Here’s a highlight video of the game. There is plenty of footage of our future center.
Keeping in the Bay Area, Aaron Gordon is a bad, bad man. He has Blake Griffin dunking ability, and, no, that is not an exaggeration. He puts up ridiculous numbers for ArchBishop Mitty including 27 points and 12 boards despite his team losing 81-46 to Lone Peak HS of Utah (#3 in ESPN Top 25). Gordon is down to Washington, Arizona, and Kentucky. If Calipari is able to pull in Gordon, Kennedy’s will want to start making “Lob City” shirts for the dunks this team are about to throw down. Here is Aaron Gordon punishing some poor kid for being in his general path.
If you have the TV on right now, tune it to ESPNU to watch Dakari Johnson and Montverde Academy play national powerhouse Findlay Prep in the Hoop Hall Classic. Montverde suffered their first loss to Paul VI High School in overtime in the Tournament of Champions. Dakari Johnson had 12 points and 10 rebounds but struggled from the field shooting just 5 of 15. Johnson was honored with being selected to the All-Tournament team
Kentucky’s own Derek Willis had a strong finale of the Tournament of Champions for Bullitt East posting 27 points 8 rebounds and 3 blocks in a victory over Hillcrest of Missouri in the consolation bracket. Like Johnson, Willis was also awarded with the All-Tournament team honors.
James Young keeps putting up James Young numbers which means score above 25 points and grab double digit rebounds. Young recorded 27 points and 15 rebounds in a win over Ferndale HS.
That’s it for now, I leave you with 2014 PG Emmanuel Mudiay punishing a very inferior player while Calipari watches.
