A CAA Convention
Quite a crowd last night at American U. for the WCAC semifinals. Aside from Niagara Coach Joe Mihalich, it was almost like a CAA convention with George Mason assistant Chris Caputo, William & Mary assistant Antwon Jackson and Virginia Commonwealth assistant John Brannen were among the crowd, with the two main attractions Gonzaga junior forward Max Kenyi and DeMatha senior guard Jeff Peterson.
Neither player had standout games. Kenyi had four points in a blowout loss to St. John's. Peterson had five points and seven assists in an easy victory over Paul VI Catholic.
The stars played well, with Georgetown-bound Austin Freeman netting 23 points and Chris Wright 26. But the most eye-opening performance might have been that of St. John's forward Vlad Moldoveanu. The 6-10 George Mason recruit was assertive at both ends of the court, blocking shots, rebounding and going to the basket - and the Romanian also showed some range, popping in a 28-foot three-pointer to silence the Gonzaga students' chant of "U-S-A."
