WCAC Semifinal Thoughts
Some thoughts from watching the WCAC semifinals last night. DeMatha sophomore Quinn Cook already is on the radar for many top programs and he continues to show why, playing with poise and under control while also knowing when to turn thigns up. Teammate Jerian Grant, a 6-4 junior forward, already has scholarship offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Clemson and Providence, according to Coach Mike Jones, and showed why he is a top prospect, making all the key plays as the Stags edged Bishop McNamara, 59-56.
It's been a tough season for McNamara guard Rashad Whack, a George Mason recruit, but his final high school game (unless the Mustangs garner an invite to Alhambra) was a good one. Whack showed great range and explosiveness, finishing with a season-high 28 points.
In the second semifinal, Ian Hummer and Tyler Thornton were the leaders for Gonzaga. Hummer, a 6-7 senior forward who is going to Princeton, had 22 points and 7 rebounds in the 57-48 victory over Paul VI Catholic, while Thornton, a junior point guard committed to Duke, coolly added 11 points. But the mid-major assistant coaches along press row had their eyes on some of the other underclassmen in the game, notably Gonzaga junior guard Cedrick Lindsay and Paul VI forward Eugene McCrory. You'll hear more about them in the future, no doubt.
The final, between DeMatha and Gonzaga, has been postponed until Thursday at American U.
