Hoophall Classic: Coleman in control- NYCHoops.net
There were some impressive performances Sunday at the Spalding Hoophall Classic, but the top one was delivered by 2012 five-star post player DaJuan Coleman.
Shaquille Stokes is still scoring a lot, leading Lincoln in that category in fact, but he’s also distributing the ball, playing like a true point guard.
Mount Improves to 15-0 with Rout of Bayside- NYHoops.com
Peter Aguilar is one of the most talented players in the CHSAA “A” Division, but in all that talent he has remained grounded about his Mountaineers undefeated start to the season. “One game at a time” is the motto Aguilar and his teammates are going with this season, and they were focused on one team and one team only on Monday and that was Bayside. The Commodores came to the Bronx in search of a statement win, but too much Aguilar in the 2nd half, who led all scorers with 26 points, buried Bayside and led Mt. St. Michael to a 72-52 victory.
City killer LuHi takes out Rice- NYPost.com
LuHi beat a team from the five boroughs for the seventh time this season, knocking off CHSAA powerhouse Rice, 72-63, in the Big Apple Invitational at Baruch College Monday afternoon. Ironically, it was two city kids – Villanova-bound Achraf Yacoubou and guard Shaun Lawton – which did most of the damage.
Omar Calhoun, who has struggled offensively, had the best game of his junior season, finishing with a game-high 23 points on 7-of-13 shooting, 10 rebounds and six assists.
Slaughter caps Kangaroos comeback with OT winner- NYPost.com
Antione Slaughter had his chance. But as he sized up the basket from the top of the key, his potential game-winning 3-pointer was short and Monday’s game against Academy of the New Church (Pa.) was going to overtime.
Blair Academy vs. Peddie School Player Evals- NorthStarBball.com
The top senior on display was Siena-bound 6'9 power forward Lionel Gomis of Blair. Although he battled foul trouble in the first half, Gomis showed what he can do in the final two quarters and led his team to the win.
CBA pulls it out- timesunion.com
"That's a very good win," CBA senior point guard Galal Cancer said. "(Troy's) a confident team."
