Cameron Biedscheid, SG, Cardinal Ritter – With several other solid prospects in the building throughout the day, Biedscheid stole the show. He scored 26 points in an upset of previously undefeated Vianney. The Notre Dame signee was face guarded and double-teamed, yet found space off pullback jumpers and opportune cuts to the rim.
Kendall Smith, PF, Belleville West – Smith dominated the interior against rival Belleville East and dropped 23 points. He has a smooth touch in the paint and at 6-foot-7 and 250 pounds, he’s a big body to handle. Division II schools would be wise to make a move.
Malcolm Hill, SG, Belleville East -- It took a while for the Illinois commit to get going, but showcased a solid stroke from the outside and had some nice moves to the bucket. He was more aggressive yesterday than he has shown in recent weeks, which is a good sign.
Brad Woodson, SG, Vianney – He couldn’t get much of a rhythm on Thursday, but Woodson still has nice size for his position and attacks the basket with vigor. He’s beginning to get Division I looks, and April could be a nice springboard for his recruitment.
Jahlil Okafor, C, Whitney Young – After a sluggish first half, Okafor went to work in the second frame. He possesses tremendous footwork, and his ability to catch the ball in the post is uncanny. Okafor took it upon himself to get deep position on the block, which led to five dunks. He ended the night with 15 points, seven rebounds, and seven blocked shots.
Paul White, SF, Whitney Young – White struggled to find his touch offensively, but was able to contribute in other ways to help the Dolphins. He has a nice first step explosion to the rack and the athleticism and height to create mismatches against smaller defenders.
Rashad Lindsey PG, MICDS -- The diminutive guard handles it well, and can knock down the outside jumper on a consistent basis. He needs to add some weight to his frame, but with his combination of quickness and athleticism, he could be an intriguing prospect.
Missouri State, Indiana State, and SIU-Edwardsville had assistants in the house.
