Tuesday Preview:
Semaj Christon can really turn some heads
if he can help lead WW to a victory Tuesday.
Several intriguing games including one must-see event highlight Tuesday's schedule:

*
LaSalle @ Winton Woods: One of the most exciting non-conference games of the season, this will be a playoff like battle. With Brandon Neel, Josh Lemmons, Semaj Chrison, and more there is no shortage of star power either. Winton Woods seemed destined to meet up with LaSalle in the playoffs last year but fell short (blowing a big lead against St. Xavier), then lost a lot of talent to graduation. So far this year they have proven the doubters wrong however; Seniors Semaj Christon, Dion Dearmond, and Dennis Thomas have all been awesome this year for Winton Woods. For LaSalle it's mostly the same team as last year: tons of talent, experience, and a group that plays really well together. This one should be exciting and a high scoring, up-tempo affair.
o
Prediction: Winton Woods is good enough to compete but not good enough to win. LaSalle looks like the top team in the city (along with Moeller), they should win this one.

Dec 31, 2010
Thursday Results
:

***
Dwyer (FL) 53 LaSalle 50: Lancers take their first loss of the season in the championship game at the Kingdom of the Sun Tournament. Dwyer, a top 25 team nationally, is ranked #1 in the state of Florida and has several D1 commitments on their team. Brandon Neel, the star senior guard for LaSalle, again led them in scoring but it wasn't quite enough. Neel did make the all-tournament team.

***

Taft 55 St. John's College (DC) 44: Senators take the championship at The Piggly Wiggly Roundball Classic in Charleston. Taft, who is still undefeated, beats a St. Johns team that is known for producing D1 talent year in year out. Junior power forward Dwayne Stanford was named the tournament's most valuable player and junior center Adolphus Washington won the most outstanding player award. Jalean Lowe, a junior sharpshooting small forward, also made the all tournament team for Taft.

*
Adolphus Washington- '10 Piggly Wiggly
Roundball Classic Tournament MVP

Jeffersontown (KY) 86 Middletown 63: In the championship game at Gaslight Holiday Classic the Middies just didn't have enough firepower to compete with nationally top 25 ranked J'town. Jeffersontown is led by Louisville signee Zac Price a 6-10 center (who transferred out of Cleveland this year). Sounds like there might have been a little bit of home-cooking from the officials tonight but never the less Middletown takes the loss. Geovonie McKnight again led the Middies in scoring, the junior guard is really starting to stuff the stat sheet.

***

Lakota West 70 Hughes 54: It was all West in the consolation game of the Hughes Holiday Classic. Sophomore shooting guard Monty Boykins had another nice night for West, Monty is starting to gain confidence as the leading scorer of that team; other GMC coaches better take notice.

*
G. McKnight had 3 good games for
the Middies at their tourney.

***

Wednesday Results:

Another great day for Cincy teams out of town, we're really showing the country what we can do! Good luck to teams playing in championships tomorrow. A few pics from the Hughes Holiday Classic

***
*
Middletown 73 North Oldham (KY) 48: Game two of the Gaslight Holiday Tournament in Kentucky went a little more smoothly for The Middies as they cruised. Geovonie McKnight, freshman forward Vince Edwards, and Mikey Brown all scored at least 15 points. Edwards is another freshman in the area to keep an eye on right now.

***

LaSalle 46 vs University School (FL) 44: LaSalle advanced to the championship at the Kingdom of the Sun Tournament in Florida, winning their first close game of the year. Josh Lemmons led LaSalle with 20 points and Brandon Neel added a dozen.

***

Columbus Desales 62 Lakota West 46: Cincinnati struggled in the opener of The Hughes Holiday Classic. It was one of those nights for Lakota West as they struggled against DeSales pressure and depth. The lone bright spot was the play of Monty Boykins. Monty, a sophomore guard, connected on a few jumpers and was better attacking the rim then he been in the past, he finished with 15 points.

Tuesday's Results:


Lots of great action tonight, another great night to be a Cincinnati fan as we took it to the rest of the nation in the out of town tourneys. Here are the top results: Pictures from Roger Bacon @ North College Hill

*
Moeller 64 Sunnyslope (AZ) 40: Moeller improved to 2-0 at the VisitMesa.com Challenge in Arizona. After a non-Moeller like defensive first half in which the game was tied 33-33 Moeller came out and dominated the second half with full court pressure, winning the half 31-7 for a 24 point victory. Moeller wore down Sunnyslope with their depth, playing 11 guys significant minutes. Alex Barlow led Moeller with 10 points, he also had 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Charlie Byers and Ben Galemmo each scored 9 points for Moeller. Junior post Tony Sabato got involved inside for the Crusaders, Tony scored 9 points and grabbed 7 boards. Moeller also got contributions from reserves Hayden Fry, Josh Davenport, and Keith Watkins who all scored two buckets and provided defensive pressure.

LaSalle 70 Leesburg (FL) 51: LaSalle remained undefeated and won their second game at The Kingdom of the Sun Tournament in Florida. Trey Casey helped lead LaSalle into the semi's with 19 points. Brandon Neel and Ryan Fleming each scored 14 for LaSalle.

***

Middletown 57 Bryan Station (KY) 54: Middletown got the overtime win in their opener at The Gaslight Holiday Classic in Kentucky. Geovonie McKnight hit a three at the buzzer to send it to overtime and Middletown never looked back. McKnight had a big night for the Middies finishing with 24 points.

***

Dec 27, 2010
Monday's Out of Town Results:

Ben Galemmo might be Cincy's
best long range shooter
Tonight's out of town games: Cincinnati went 3-0 for the day!

*
Moeller 62 Dobson (AZ) 41: Comfortable win for Moeller in their first game at The VistaMesa.com Challenge in Arizona. Was able to catch this game online and to describe it in two words the game was: typical Moeller. They jumped out to a ten point lead, held it through three quarters, and took advantage of a worn down opponent to bust the game wide open. Ben Galemmo played the best game that I've seen him play at Moeller, he scored 17 points (hitting 5 threes) and made several nice passes for layups. Ben also did a great deal of ball-handling in transition. Charlie Byers was next in scoring for Moeller with 11 points, Chuck was able to get the better of Dobson star Malcom McKinley holding him to just 9 points (about 10 below his average). Junior wing Alex Voss was also effective for Moeller, Voss is another weapon for the Crusaders who can shoot or take his man off the dribble, and is also a passing and defensive threat. Moeller plays again tomorrow at 12:30 ET, the game can be seen online at: http://www.livestream.com/moellerbasketball1

*
Josh Lemmons had another
double digit scoring game for LaSalle

LaSalle 61 Tampa Prep 28: The Lancers dominated their first game in The Kingdom of the Sun Tournament in Ocala, Florida. Brandon Neel led the way with 14 points and Josh Lemmons was next with 12. LaSalle also got 8 points from both Matt Woeste and Ryan Fleming. This was a convincing win for LaSalle over one of Florida's top programs (Tampa Prep made the 2A state semi-final and only lost three games last year). LaSalle will play again tomorrow.

***

Withrow 80 East Grand Rapids 70: Aaron Thomas and Devin Williams had their second consecutive big nights with 23 points a piece as Withrow moved to 2-0 at Detroit's Motorcity Roundball Classic. Junior forward Kendall Beamon also added 10 points for Withrow. Withrow plays their final game of the classic tomorrow afternoon at 4 PM against Detroit Renaissance.


Preview of Tuesday's Games

A couple of late Christmas gifts to Cincinnati hoops fans with two great games tomorrow, as well as some coverage of out of town tourneys. Also, a few more top Cincinnati teams will be in action locally:

*
Lakota East @ Huber Heights Wayne: Two of SW Ohio's finest meet up in the Dayton suburbs for this playoff like match-up. Wayne features two high major players in Michigan State signee Travis Trice, the 6-0 SR PG is the son of the coach and a great shooter; and Marcus Crider a 6-6 SR SF who has signed with Providence. Crider is a great athlete that can put points up on the board. While East might not have two players as talented as Trice and Crider they do have a team loaded with senior talent. Expect Mike Boyd, Jalen Goodwin, Cameron Lee, RJ Leppert, and the rest of the team to come out ready to play. The key to this game for Lakota East might be the production of Mark Minch. Minch, who likely will guard Crider, will be counted on to put pressure on Wayne's defense and to match Wayne's superior athleticism.

***

Dec 26, 2010
Withrow @ Motorcity Roundball Classic
Give Devin Williams 10 shots and he'll
put up big numbers no matter who the opponent is.
Withrow 82 Detroit Pershing 73
A great start to Detroit's finest event for Withrow as they defeated Detroit Pershing by nine. Seems like this one was a game of star performances. Aaron Thomas, Cincinnati's top player, led the way with 30 points and 10 rebounds. Aaron shot 10-16 from the field, an efficiency that is tough to achieve in HS, and hit 7-10 from the line. Devin Williams was next for Withrow; the 6-7 sophomore PF scored 19 points and grabbed 13 big rebounds. Devin shot 8-10 from the field and 3-5 from the line. Also for Withrow, Carl Porter scored 12 points and had 8 rebounds, and Kevin Jones added 9 points. Withrow's big four really came through this game when they were needed most.

For Detroit Pershing, sophomore SG Martez Walker (a top 100 nationally ranked player) scored 29 points and his older brother, point guard Sherron Walker (ranked as one of Michigan's top 5 juniors) added 24.

Withrow plays tomorrow at 9pm vs East Grand Rapids HS- Check in tomorrow night for a report from this game, as well as updates from Moeller and LaSalle's out of town tournament games.

Wednesday Night Results:

Thurgood Marshall 72 Hughes 39: The Big Red took another loss in a tough season, Terry Cook led them with a 13 points in the loss.

Lawrence Central (IN) 62 Aiken 55: Willy Moore scored 26 points (for the second game in a row) and grabbed 10 rebounds but it wasn't enough as Aiken lost their third game in four tries. Austin Grimes had a double-double with 12 points 10 boards, freshman PG Tyonte Robertson had his best statistical game with 15 points and 7 assists, and Landen Gaulden scored 10 for Aiken.

=>How some Miami recruiting targets (bolded) did tonight...

Feb 18, 2011
Friday Results:


The last undefeated team takes a loss, and again it's at the hands of Middletown. The GCL title will be shared between LaSalle and Moeller. Princeton takes down Mason again, and much, much more. Here are the top scores from tonight:

*
LaSalle 42 Moeller 28: The Lancers earned a share of the GCL title and sent Moeller to their second straight defeat with a great defensive effort. Moeller simply did not get a good look all night as the pressure of LaSalle kept them on the perimeter and forced them into turnovers. Brandon Neel was excellent tonight for LaSalle, scoring 16 points and grabbing 7 boards. Neel did a great job of attacking the slower but taller Crusader defenders in the first half and then using his body to get to the foul line in the second half when matched with guards. Josh Lemons added 10 points for LaSalle and Ryan Fleming gave them 8 points and 8 boards. Although he only scored 1 point, Matt Woeste was a huge part of the Lancer victory, giving them great energy and dirty work all night. Alex Barlow led Moeller with 9 points and Charlie Byers added 8 in the loss. Moeller is really struggling right now, which is hard to explain after they cruised to a 18-0 start. CPHR would love to see a tie-breaker game between these two teams in the regionals. Game Pictures

*
Middletown 66 Lakota East 65: The Middies rebounded from a 15 point deficit after the third quarter and pulled another upset with a Geovonie McKnight buzzer beater to ruin Lakota East's undefeated season. This was Middletown's second win over a top ten state ranked team this week, they are really coming into their own at the right time of the year. Mikey Brown led the Middies with 22 points, Vince Edwards had 13, McKnight 12, and Josh Johnson 10. East got 17 points from Cammeron Lee and 16 from Mike Boyd.

*
Aiken 78 West High 71: Willy Moore led the Falcons with 15 points and 10 boards, Austin Grimes had 13 points and 17 boards, Femi Thompson scored 18 points, and Landen Gaulden added 11 points. Gene Primus and Mikey Thompson each added on 8 points for Aiken as well.

Tuesday Tourney Scores:


Middletown 55 Walnut Hills 44: Intense game that was closer then the score indicates. The Middies survived a scare from the upset minded Eagles of Walnut Hills. Walnut has a lot of talent but many of their top players are young, and their leader Alex McGlothin missed almost the whole year with an injury. Geovonie McKnight was not feeling his jumper tonight so he did what great players do, find a way to contribute somewhere else. McKnight was active on defense, scored 3 times off of offensive rebounds, and passed the ball exceptionally well. He led the way with 17 points while senior sharpshooter Mike Brown added 14. Vince Edwards had another strong night for the Middies scoring 7 points and grabbing 9 rebounds. Walnut Hills was led by sophomore guard Sterling Gilmore's 10 points and also got 8 points from sophomore center Isiah Johnson. Johnson is a wide body down low that really played physical tonight and also possesses a soft touch to compliment his great strength. The Middies next game will be against Winton Woods at UC on Saturday night.

Hopefully Bill and Allen can tell Vince what a positive experience it was playing for Miami. Looks like a kid with a lot of talent like his older brother.

That had to be awkward as Big Bro rained threes and dominated the first half.

Yes on both fronts.

The reality as to Vincent and all other recruits is that Miami recruiting is currently at a standstill until the coaching situation is clear

Nick, its not that I don't the point you are making lacks any merit, but ... you and others have been making this point or a point like it for years. And, we still seem to be able to recruit some pretty good players. Of course, you could say that we could be doing better ... maybe. But, to say that it is at a standstill is, I think, hyperbolic and self-defeating. The constant hammering of this point also comes across as ax-grinding.

Maz, I certainly understand that very often I sound like a broken record (my wife says the same thing) as it relates to miami basketball. Year after year I get more and more frustrated and I apologize. I expect that as things continue on the same course that I will grow more apathetic and that I won't drone on as much. I've tried to constructively affect change by contributing my time & energy but have been unsuccessful.

However, as it relates to your contention I would suggest that my recent post that you reference is in fact different than any of my prior postings.

First of all I would agree that Miami has recruited some very good players over the years. However I am aware that over the past 3 years or so that Miami has been impacted significantly by the lack of certainty with the head coaching position. I think Miami fans would be shocked/surprised by the names of the quality players Miami has recruited that were generally interested in Miami that moved on because of the cloud of uncertainty floating over the program. I would go on to suggest that if the coaching situation had been more defined that the make-up of the current team would be very different than the players that suited up last night.

However, my most recent statement is different in that in the past Miami was able to "reasonably" recruit players (& sign those players) compared to now as potential (quality) recruits are not interested in Miami at all at this time. This is caused by the honesty of our coaches with recruits/family of recruits as well as the comments/statements made by competing coaches. As we all know Miami did not sign any players this past November and that is due in large part to the impending change in coaching staff (along with the lack of succession plan).

=>2 very public examples of kids second guessing Miami because of the coaching situation that I feel can be revealed:

Ex. #1: Aaron Craft is now a starting sophomore guard at #2 Ohio State (and played 29.6 mins a game last year as a frosh). You might have heard Dick Vitale go on and on about him last night in the telecast of OSU's blowout victory over Duke. Craft played all but 2 minutes last night, dropped in 17 points on the Dookies, and had 8 assists (1 less than the combined 9 assists Miami had against UC last night). Aaron Craft had this to say after his sophomore year of high school in 2008:

Quote:
Recently Craft scored a 32 on his ACT, and because of that the academic prestige of Miami is something that really appeals to him. "Miami, their coaching situation is kind of shaky, but the academics at Miami is the top in the whole conference and coming away with a degree from Miami carries a lot of weight."


http://indiana.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=833382

Ex. #2: Aaron Cosby has started every game this year at guard as a true frosh at Seton Hall in the Big East. The following was posted here on MHT.com in the Aaron Cosby thread in May of 2008 by "kyredhawk":

kyredhawk wrote:
I hear that this kid recently picked up an offer from the Redhawks and is very interested in Miami. According to my sources, he and his family are waiting for the coaching situation to work itself out. I know he really likes Coach Henderson and is waiting to see if Jermaine will be the man to replace Coach Coles.


The registered email address on MHT.com for "kyredhawk" is georgewcosby@bellsouth.net. The name of Aaron's father is "George Cosby." Aaron Cosby is from Louisville, Ky. This was the first and only post ever made by kyredhawk" on MHT.com.

http://www.miamihawktalk.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?p=485725&highlight=#485725

******

2 guards named Aaron C. in the h.s. class of 2010 (Cosby reclassified to 2011 after a year of prep school) were very interested in Miami and very publicly stated (or parent stated) the coaching situation was a concern. Neither of them signed with Miami.

Pretty sure other examples could be cited as well! Wink

Cosby I could see us getting...Craft would have been a huge stretch. The kid originally committed to Tennessee, then switched over to OSU. With those offers on the table, no way he would have picked Miami regardless of the coaching situation.

As I recall craft was ready to commit to Miami before a major summer evaluation period. The entire craft family was giddy about Miami. However there was 1 main question that they asked. They didn't like the answer and moved on.

And he saw no reason to stick to this committment to Tennessee...when those other offers rolled in that summer, he would have split in two seconds

Maybe.

Or maybe he would have toned down his hectic summer schedule and not have blown up.

The point is that he was ready to commit. The reason he didn't commit was because of coaching uncertainty.

By the way....tod gave 2 public announcements. There are many many more. This uncertainty has had a major impact on Miami bball

=>At the time Craft made those quotes, he was leaning towards Miami. He had just taken an unofficial visit and seriously considered committing on the visit but was uncertain of the coaching situation. That was in June, 2008 when he held offers from Miami, BGSU, and I believe Butler (Butler offer may have come shortly after his MU visit).

At the time he made the statement above, August 4, 2008, he had just finished the July evaluation period where coaches from all over could watch him. Tennessee and UD had just offered him a few days before that story ran after watching him help All-Ohio Red to the AAU National Championship.

If he would have committed in June on the visit, he would not have gotten the offer from Tennessee or UD. Much like if Josh Sewell or Q had not committed to Miami before July, they both would have gotten many more offers.

=>Another example of a coach being important to a recruit is Julian Mavunga:

Quote:
The loss of Coach Smith has made Mavunga wonder if Miami can replace the man with whom he had become so close. Similarly, the addition of McKenna has made Mavunga recognize the options available to him in Terra Haute, Indiana.

“Frankie Smith is a very great guy,” said Mavunga. “I love the way he came about me. When I was thinking about why I would want to commit there, I said ‘there’s Frankie Smith.’ But there’s also Coach Pedon, Coach Coles, Coach Henderson. I think I was almost ready to commit there. But it’s like a puzzle. One of the bigger people in the puzzle is no longer there. So now it’s like: What can they do to make up for that? What can I find to fill the missing piece of the puzzle?”

It is unknown to us if Sewell and Q would have received more offers. The way they have been playing, I don't think they deserved a lot of offers
