Has Gilman ever had a HM basketball player?

What’s HM? HM All Metro? Yes. During my time at Gilman, Gilman had 5 players that ended up playing D1.

CHC wins their first game of the year at Gilman 69-61.  Even in a terribly down year like this year, CHC puts Gilman where they belong

This is what I wrote on the other thread: 

CHC gets their first win of the year, beating Gilman 69-61. Gilman was winning by 8 at the half, was up by as much as 14 in the first half. 

This loss goes squarely on the coach’s shoulders. He left the Sandy kid in there in the third quarter, when he literally turned it over 10 times himself in the quarter! He had another kid in there, who kept turning the ball over. I know a couple of kids had three fouls, but when you see the tide of the game turning like that, you have to get your best players back in the game! 

CHC got three buzzer beating three pointers, to end each of the first three quarters. CHC was hitting threes, but the coach stayed in a zone. Really bad coaching game for the new Head Coach. Like what he’s done most of the year, but this was a bad game on his part.

Well, Do the names Lefty, Tark, Rollie, Dean, and Izzo mean anything to you. Coach K? Well those are the names of unfortunate souls that never had the chance to coach a Greyhound grad. Something missing in their resumes if you ask me. IMHO GA is the best guy ever out of Gilman. Ask the DeMatha guys. He had serious game. No BS. a shorter Melo before Melo.

CHC’s press turned the game around in the third quarter. Gilman had at least a dozen turnovers in the second half.  Kudos to Coach Bauersfeld and his team.  It was very enlightening to hear him coach up his kids and will them to play harder.  I take back my prediction that he would be fired.  He’s a very good basketball coach.

Logan Curtis and Brendan Adams put the Cardinals on their shoulders and personally demoralized the Greyhounds with timely buckets and clutch free throws.

Also, hats of to SR G Vincent Adofina, JR F Kevin Collier and FR PG Darius Tilghman for their efforts tonight.  Adofina had multiple hustle plays and scored several times at the line and from the field when Gilman made their 4th quarter run.  Collier provided strong interior defense and rebounding all game long.  He must have played 30 of the 32 minutes in the game.  Finally, Tilghman was the primary ball handler against the Gilman press and was able to get across half court when it seemed that Gilman would force the 10 second violation or steal the basketball.

I feel better about this team because they have heart.  They still could lose 15-20 games but I look forward to seeing them play again.

Good game, not the first time CHC started slow and went on to finish year very strong. Merry Christmas

The 52nd Annual Benedictine Capital City Classic tips off Wednesday in Richmond, VA.  Calvert Hall plays LaSalle HS (PA) &  St. Maria Goretti (BCL) takes on Potomac School (VA) in one bracket.  In the other bracket, St. Stephen’s-St. Agnes School (VA) battles the Haverford School (PA) while James River (VA) faces the host Benedictine Cadets.  

It’ll be interesting to see if Calvert Hall maintains their winning momentum.  It’ll also be interesting to see how the Cardinals fare against the Goretti Gaels in the second round if they win.  Goretti destroyed CHC by 23 points on the opening night of the 2017-18 season, 69-46.

First day at the Governors Challenge, Oakdale took out Randallstown early, turning a 15-2 first quarter lead into a 73-55 rout, as the Bears seemingly couldn't miss. The Bears shot 70% from the field through 3 quarters, where they held a 22 point lead.

Collin Schlee led the way, scoring 22 points, making every one of his 10 2-point field goals (0-5 from 3), grabbing 6 rebounds, and dishing out 3 assists. Schlee, a junior, is coming off a strong campaign on the gridiron as the Bears quarterback.

The #14 Bears (4-1) will face #25 Flowers (4-1) in the bracket championship today. The Jaguars pounded Parkside, 88-51, using a 28-11 second quarter to stake a 22 point halftime lead. Flowers grabbed 20 offensive rebounds. Cornelius Hawkins led 12 Jags scorers with 20 points (9-12).

Among notable games today.

SFA (13-1) goes down to Carolina to take on Carmel Christian NC (14-1) in the Hoodie Hoops Classic at 4:15. The Cougars are led by 6-4 junior wing Donovan Gregory, who has an offer from Charlotte. The Panthers, who hold an overtime win over John Carroll, is coming off a 6 point win over Mt St 

----------

Woodlawn, 3-1, with a 5 point loss to Milford Mill, plays 1-3 Bladensburg, who features 6-7 Daniel Oladipo, in the Douglass PG Holiday Tournament at 6. Oladipo is coming off a 28 point performance in a 58-55 win over Bowie in the Rock Creek Christian Tip Off Classic. All 3 Mustangs losses were to WaPost top 15 teams - Wise, Wilson DC, and Rock Creek Christian.

----------

The Baltimore Sun's top ranked Poly Engineers face Riverdale Baptist (10-3) in the Governors Challenge. The Crusaders have a 20 point loss to Pallotti, but also have two close wins over Wise (59-52) and Eleanor Roosevelt (69-67). The Engineers, who have a 9 point win over #2 MD public Perry Hall, take on another challenging slate of games this season.

The 3A defending champs, not only start their City League schedule in earnest following the new year, but also have #2 St Frances and Chicago's national top 15 power Simeon on the docket in January. The Wolverines are 6-0, with wins over Chaminade IL, Morgan Park IL, and Waxahachie TX, at the National Hoopfest. The Wolverines are led by 6'5 bookends Talen Horton-Tucker (Iowa St commit) and Messiah Jones (Drake commit), and guard Kezo Brown (Chicago St commit).

Being a Chicago native, I would be remiss in not pointing out that Simeon was once home to Benji Wison (RIP), Deon Thomas, Nick Anderson, Bobby Simmons, Derrick Rose, and Jabari Parker. The 6'10 Wilson, was the nation's top player, before being gunned down in Chicago. Thomas, a former NBA first round pick, was a former Fightin' Illini power forward who played for the Mavericks and Tel Aviv. Anderson, the #11 pick in the 1989 NBA draft, helped lead the Illini, aka 'The Flyin'Illini', to the 1989 Final 4, before a 14 year NBA career. Simmons, the former DePaul Blue Demon, played 12 years in the NBA. Rose led Simeon to 2 state titles ('06-07), before playing for Memphis and becoming the #1 pick in the 2008 NBA draft. Rose was selected NBA MVP in 2011. Parker, the #2 pick in the 2014 NBA draft, played on 4 straight Simeon state championship teams ('10-13). Thomas, Anderson, Rose and Parker were all selected Mr. Illinois Basketball.

Several Metro teams are playing down on the shore.  It’s ok, Mamba.  Just trying to avoid the newbies posting about DC/Nothern VA teams.

No offense taken. I know what you mean. The profileration of these bots is absurd. We know, you believe what your last handle said, and the one before that said. Pressed. Geekin'.

Yesterday Dulaney fell to Boys Latin, 59-45 in the final of the Oakland Mills Holiday tournament.  BL plays CHC next Tuesday at CHC.  Might have to get out and see the Lakers.

The Cardinals lost to LaSalle HS (PA) in the first round at the Benedictine Capital City Classic 69-59 but bounced back last night to beat the Potomac School (VA), 68-54.  St. Maria Goretti beat both Potomac and LaSalle to reach tonight’s BCCC championship game.
