bildeZak Irvin finished with 29 points and 10 rebounds in his final high school game as Hamilton Southeastern lost to North Central. North Central head coach Doug Mitchell was impressed with Irvin:

Irvin was in tears after the game, an emotional moment for the Michigan recruit who is a top contender for IndyStar Mr. Basketball.

“After (Eric) Gordon, he’s the best high school basketball player I’ve ever seen,” Mitchell said. “That guy is unreal. The way he can handle the ball and create shots … he’s tireless. He’s going to make a lot of money some day playing the game.”

  • For those keeping track, Mitchell coached Eric Gordon at North Central.

  • Mark Worthley

    Irvin played the entire game, and I think that he stopped playing in the 4th quarter out of exhaustion. There were times when he would let the other four guys play offense because he was too tired. It is ugly to lose the way HSE did.
