Great time at the Nike Extravanganza. Marvin Bagley III put on a show and broke the single game points record with 43 points which was originally held by Shabazz Muhammad. Looking forward to him square off vs Mater Bol Bol's (who according to the Mater Dei announcer is fro my Irvine??).
I noticed that when Lavar and his wife stepped in the gym, they walked right past Marvin Bagley Sr. & didn't notice one another. Funny thing is Lavar shook hands and exhanged words with the person who was standing next to Bagley Sr. interesting to say the least. Bad blood? Probably so.
Speaking of bad blood, the Sierra Canyon faithful which consisted of parents of the players stayed for the Chino Hills vs Oak Hill Academy game and they were openly rooting for Oak Hill Academy & were even vocal about the officiating (which was another story in its own).
LaMelo is good, will be very good but won't grow to 6'8" as Sondy predicts. #5 from Oak Hill Academy went head to head with him and scored just as many points and a handful of them were an array of touch shots to the basket. Billy Preston wanted to put on a show coming back home (or is CA still considered his home despite how many times he's bounced around?) but didn't stand out as much. However, he did attempt an emphatic dunk in the lane with Eli Scott under the basket which ended up missing. Gelo Gelo Gelo...goodness his shooting was atrocious and ultimately cost Chino Hills the game. I don't understand why they don't run anything for Big O, most of his points are put backs or off of 2nd + 3rd chances. Dinos was also seen smirking after Chino Hills took the loss & Bagley Sr. Sitting in the stands gave Oak Hill Academy a round of applause after ending Chino Hills 60 game winning streak haha! That said, I'm looking forward to seeing Chino Hills square off with Sierra Canyon. There is something brewing there & hope they meet in the Open!
