I love the coaches composure in this clip. On the inside they are saying this to the college basketball world for locking MJ down. Now let’s close on JB!

It seems to me good things happened when our coaches kept doing full court press.

St Rita lost. Just couldn't score down the stretch. Can't a high school coach just get some plays off the internet to run? I'm always shocked at how helter skelter high school basketball is.
Wow!!! You are an Illini fan and you are saying this?!?!?!

Brad needs some plays and an offense as well... very frustrating!

Was at the game and have seen St Rita previously. The good is both Morez and Brown have very good (college) size and already have some quick spin post moves while being fairly active big men. The bad is they are both average athletes and relatively poor shooters. Morez specifically is much thicker than last year but it appears to have taken away some of his athletic ability imo. As one if my buddies said I would have both of them shooting 1000 shots a day.
I feared St Rita's guards could struggle and they did mightily.

Just wome thoughts...How does St. Rira lose when they are up 14 with 4.30 minutes left in game? Especially when you have 3 high major recruits on the floor?

Morez much bigger than last year, seems to be bigger and better than JB. Body shape reminds me of Dainja. Mostly inside player now.

JB, similiar game to Morez. Seems a little stiff and mechanical. Showed some ability to dribble but often dribbled into double teams. A junior, but I dont see him as a Duke recruit. Wonder if a Coleman Hawkins type big would work better. Once again his game can develop the next two years.

Indrus..., not overly impressed. Needs weight room and stronger with dribble. Made several mistakes like dribbling to bucket to far and into traffic with no where to go. Wasn't automatic from outside. Was surprised by how many "coaching" mistakes he made, expected better fundamentals.

Serious question, how good are their guards? How well do they shoot free throws?

If you can’t get your dudes/FT shooters the ball when the pressure is turned up in a desperation situation for the other team, you’re gonna be in trouble.
