: : Like what they've done in terms of player development throughout the year. KMart jr. is now -at least- shooting the rock from outside the paint, working on his form, release, and confidence. Still needs a lot of work but at least he's fighting those demons. SC got Koloko involved very well against Mater Dei. You could see his presence made an impact on the game. The fact that his teammates were actually looking to feed him the rock and he was finishing, was invigorating and a joy to watch. I love seeing elite teams make a conscious effort to run sets and reward their bigs. Against Rancho Christian, in the game of the year, he had 1 FG attempt which some would say, cost SC the 'Dub'. Great job SC coaching staff of making the adjustments, players being ready to accept their roles throughout the course of the season, and just making big time plays at the highest level in HS BBall. We still feel that Cassius Stanley is a one and done. We loved his willingness to play defense on Devin Askew, holding him to under 20 (18 pts), playing lock-down man to man D for the full game family. We think Cassius was snuffed from the Mickey D's Game. Keep your confidence young man. The basketball Gods will be shining down on you soon.
: : Askew is a beast who should be another player from the West Coast getting a long look from NBA personnel when it's all said and done. He's a 5 star PG, no questions asked. Mater Dei will be tough to beat the next two seasons and might go back to back, winning both Open and State both years.
: : SC should steam-roll their way to victory Saturday. We appreciate the hospitality that you show and the high level of play that your teams bring to the table.

: Askew came into the game with a 14pt average. If he got 18pts how was it lock-down man to man defense? Stanley also isn't a one and done by a long shot.
Pressuring someone for the full game, baseline to baseline, I would call that lock down defending. Askew put up big time numbers throughout the season, regardless of his average. I would have to see how many blowout/creampuff games they played and if the average was justified. Stanley impressed scouts with his ability to defend elite guards and stock has risen because of it. He can defend guards with his size and athleticism, and still be productive on the offensive end of the court. How many other elite 5 star players have you seen play an elite guard man to man baseline to baseline for the full game? He was causing issues for Askew and you could see it. I hope that answers your question. He will be a one and done...late 1st, early second round selection.
