I think that the 1-2 combo at St Joe (Morsell and Smith) are comparable -

I put the JC combo slightly ahead of MSJ combo because IQ and MM are more complete players.  Sticks and Morsell are also high major players, but Sticks is still coming into his own.  He has an extremely high ceiling, but I don't think he's peaked just yet.  To me, the JC combo will pose a greater scoring threat.  Clatchy needs to let Sticks play more this year.  Let him play through mistakes.  Hopefully he will now that he's an upperclassman.

I do too, slightly. Both are great 1-2 combos. Quickley will visit UVA this weekend, after Midnight Madness' trips to Kentucky and Kansas, and visits with Georgetown and Maryland.

You're right on. Sticks has to prove it this year. So far, he hasn't shown that he's a Top 20 player like his ranking says. Not saying he won't, just that he has to prove it in the high school setting.

It depends on who they put around 6-6 freshman G Che Evans. Definitely looking forward to seeing him.

 

 

I don't follow area Bball as much as most of you all, but I heard Che was held back twice in grade school and is at least 15 entering high school. I just know I was finishing up my sophomore year of JV basketball when I was still 15. Just curious if he is really as old as I have heard.

No doubt about this!  Anyone who knows Bmore basketball isn't what it used to be needs to pay attention this year.  The town is LOADED with high major talent.  Just off the top of my head in no particular order:
 

Immanuel - JC

Mathis - JC

Adams - CHC

Lewis - CHC

Longpre - GCS

Morsell - MSJ

Sticks - MSJ

Rafus - LC

Evans - Dulaney

Locke - McD

 

And many more....Should be a great year to get out and watch the talent!

If he was held back twice(which he wasn't), he would be 16 or older not 15. He was reclassed once.

You can't leave Marvin Price off this list. Price can ball and is a scoring machine.

According to his handler, Che is not eligible for next year's 16U USA basketball. So that means he's older then 16 as of 12/31/2017 per FIBA international rules. In order to not qualify he turns 17 anytime during the year of 2017.

 

You have a habit of talking about others you don't like but not know the facts on the ones you like.

What does that have to do with anything? You're not very smart are you? Most kids start high school at 14 and if they have a late birthday(after September) turn 15 during their first semester of high school. I don't know Che's Birthday and don't know anything about his handler, but grew up with both his father, Big Che Gotti and uncle Kwame. Still very good friends with both. I'm told by people who would know, that he's only been re-classed once. He very well could have a late birthday and then re-classed.

Let the kid at least lace them up before beginning the conversation on being the best ever at Calvert Hall -

A lot to put on a 9th grader. Way too soon to compare him to Duane Ferrell, who was the best freshman player that I ever watched.

I was spouting GA-speak. It was an inside joke. However I saw Duane Ferrell practice and play for three years, too. I wouldn't do that to Lewis.

Justin Lewis already has an offer from Georgia Tech, as a freshman. I'm old school, but I like my freshman to play JV and use the year to develop. I believe Lewis is only 14 too, so he may need a little time.

JC has the best 1-2 punch in the league with Quickley and Mathis. Both high major players.

Longpre best big man in the area. Kid is a nice pick up for St. Joe's.

CHC holiday tourney is in San Diego, California. Don't know which tournament yet.

Could be the San Diego Surf 'n Slam tournament. Last year's tournament had 30 boys teams from around the country playing in four different brackets and 12 girls squads in two brackets.

I agree. If the freshman is better than the upperclassman then he should start. The name of the game is putting in the kid that best helps you win. Not that old-fashioned CHC "politics".

I'm 100% most concerned for a 14 year old kid that shouldn't have to have a ton of pressure on him during his first year in hs. Trust me, it's a discussion I've had With his AAU coach, who discusses it w his parents. Coach jb is a good guy and will do what's best for his team but especially for each student athlete.

Pressure?Nobody is expecting Lewis & McNeil to dominate as freshmen, just rebound, block shots and play defense which is something that CHC lacked last year.

No, according to their website no Maryland team has ever competed in their tournament.
