Worcester beat Vanier College (Montreal) 70-60. No word on how Blake played. I should have McLimans video all chopped up and ready to go this week.
Jordan Morgan was in Ann Arbor for Michigan’s win over Iowa on Saturday but he also had a solid week on the court. Jordan had 14 points in U-D Jesuit’s win over Dearborn Divine Child.
Trey scored 24 points to go along with 11 boards, 4 blocks, and three assists in Mount Pleasant’s 69-66 win over Flint Southwestern. Trey also hit the game winning three pointer at the buzzer.
“We had a couple big shots, a couple big defensive stops,” Mount Pleasant coach Sam Taylor said. “Trey made the big shot. He has to make the read. It’s either him or, if they double-team, a couple other shooters spotting up. It’s nice to have some success in a tough situation.”
Will Regan keeps on rolling…
Regan had 16 points in an easy 75-58 win over Niagara Catholic.
He followed that up with an even bigger day, against St. Francis Regan had 37 points and 19 rebounds in an 83-71 win. Regan also managed to score his 1000th point on his career in the St. Francis game.
There is an interview with Regan that was posted on the sometimes-reliable BleacherReport. The interview seems to be legit and Regan lists his top four as “Michigan, Maryland, Arizona State, and Stanford” but says that he is still wide open and wants to make a decision before the end of AAU season. Regan would be an A+ get for Michigan and hopefully they keep on working hard on this recruitment.
Eso Akunne (pref. walk on) and Josh Herbeck
Gabriel Richard gave state powerhouse Detroit Country Day a battle but just didn’t have enough talent to knock off the giants. Eso had 21 points and 12 rebounds while Josh Herbeck netted 18 points in the 67-54 loss.
Glenbrook-North knocked off Maine East 61-59 thanks to Alex pouring in 18 of his game high 26 points in the fourth quarter. Dragicevich also added 7 boards:
“At halftime I was just thinking, ‘Don’t let your teammates down,’ ” Dragicevich said. “They didn’t give up on me and I didn’t give up on them.
Both Alex and U-M commit Matt Vogrich are listed as “players off the fast starts” in the Chicago Tribune’s mid season report.
Casey Prather scored 31 points in front of Wake Forest head coach Dino Gaudio in a 78-69 win over South Side despite not starting because of missing practice to visit UVA.
Allen Payne appears to be able to stuff the stat sheet though. Against Walnut Hills Payne had 12 points, 7 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, and 3 blocks. He followed that up with 14 points on 6-10 (2-3 3pt) shooting, 8 assists, 5 rebounds, and a steal against Loveland.
We haven’t heard a lot about Allen Payne lately but his balanced numbers definitely make him an intriguing prospect, especially considering the fact that he has already been on campus.
Tim Hardaway Jr.
Palmetto lost 66-47 to Miramar and Tim Hardaway Jr. was held to only 8 points.
Ayers had 12 points in the loss thanks to 9 free throws and but only managed 5 points in the win over Haverford.
Another guy we haven’t talked about enough on here, Carlton Brundage is the real deal. The sophomore point guard scored 25 points (including three triples) in a 67-60 Southfield win over West Bloomfield.
“Carleton is one of the top sophomores in the state. He doesn’t have a premeditated game — he can get by people,” Teasley (Southfield’s coach) said. “He’s buying into the defense-first mentality.”
The sophomore duo from Detroit Southeastern kept up their stellar play in a 54-47 win over Detroit Denby. Kearney posted 15 points and Gibson chipped in 12 of his own.
Poches continues to be a scoring machine and posted 31 points in a 86-64 victory over Fowlerville.
The 6-foot-10 Detroit Country Day sophomore claims a Michigan offer in his latest Scout.com update.
