Justin Watts’ Durham Jordan team was upset in the first round of the North Carolina state playoffs. Watts had 22 points in the loss, both Watts and Ebuka’s seasons are over so their recruitments should start to pick up steam.
Some updates on Jordan Morgan’s season as well. Jordan was named to the All-Catholic team, which is the highest honor in the CHSL. U of D got bounced in the first round from the CHSL playoffs but added in a couple extra games versus Detroit City, Grosse Pointe North, and Detroit Western (Thursday @ 6pm @U-D). U of D won the games against Detroit City and Grosse Pointe North. Jordan put up a great game against GPN, scoring 24 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists in a 66-54 win. U of D’s first round of districts will be at Mumford High versus Detroit Pershing on Wednesday 2/27 at 4pm. Jordan will be in the house Saturday for Jalen Rose night versus Illinois as well.
Stuart Douglass’ Carmel team fell for the 2nd time this season with a loss to state power Lafayette Central Catholic.
Carmel (17-2) tied the game in the fourth quarter on a three-pointer from Stuart Douglass, but could never regain the lead. Instead, the Knights scored 37 points in the final period to preserve the win.
Here is a little fluff piece on Stuart Douglass and the Carmel Greyhounds capturing their first Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference championship. Carmel coach Galloway had this to say on Stu:
It didn’t take long for senior Stuart Douglass to find his mark Friday night. The University of Michigan recruit made four 3-pointers in the first quarter.
When he comes off of screens and he squares his shoulders and gets his feet set, I think he’s one of the best shooters around,” Galloway said.
Corey Person, a probable preferred walk-on from Kalamazoo Central (via the Kalamazoo Promise) Had a monster game this last weekend scoring 21 points, 15 rebounds and dishing out nine assists against Loy Norrix. Person is reportedly a good student, leader and ball player and will be a great addition next year.
