St. Anthony's Guards: This was the difference as Amityville had a decided interior advantage going into this one with Jason Fraser patrolling the paint. Elijah Ingram (19 points) didn't have an efficient evening (5-16 FG) but he led the charge. Donald Copeland and Dwayne Lee were super combing for 32 points and pressuring the ball enough to knock Amityville on its heels.
Jason Fraser, C, Amityville: Kind of a subpar rebounding effort for Fraser with a "human" 8 rebounds. There's something to be said for getting the big man the ball and when Amityville dumped it to him, he dunked or layed it in. However, Amityville didn't get him nearly enough touches and helped fuel the blowout. Fraser's five offensive rebounds led to four close range buckets. This is the best rebounder in the Class of 2002.
Justin Gray, PG, Oak Hill: He was at it again from the outside as he drained 7 3-pointers. This is vintage JG when he's connecting from deep while running the show efficiently.
Sani Ibrahim, PF, Oak Hill: Fine performance with the double-double (see Oak Hill story).
Carmelo Anthony, SF, Oak Hill: Big weekend for Anthony as he takes the SAT on Saturday and trades paint with LeBron James on Sunday. Anthony is at his best when he rebounds and he wasn't active on the glass tonight but did score 17 without hitting a 3.
Paul Williams, PF, St. Patrick: He continued his fine play at the Prime Time leading the way with 19 points in a loss to Oak Hill. We said it last night and it bears repeating: Siena has itself a fine prospect. 2003 Standouts
Terrence Roberts, 6-8, PF, St. Anthony's: Bob Hurley chuckled at the media throng around Roberts after the game, but the big fella earned the attention. He wasn't phased by the presence of Fraser and was super en route to 18 points. Roberts attacks the basket and looks to dunk from close range. He ran the floor, battled and his reverse lay in was sweet. This is most definitely a young man to watch as he made his mark at the Prime Time.
Ben Luber, PG, Council Rock: He's headed to Penn State. He had a big game today going for almost 30. He was 8-19 from the field and 11-14 at the line. Luber isn't your typical Big Ten guard. He's skinny and will have to get significantly stronger. Today, his drives to the lane didn't go down and he had problems finishing once contact was involved. Nevertheless, he valiantly led a comeback against Burlington that came up short.
AJ Price, 6-1, Guard, Amityville: His stroke looked sweet tonight and he legit 3-point range to go along with good-looking trigger. He scored 17 in Amityville's loss.
Oak Hill guard Chadd Moore battled stomach problems but was effective in the Warriors win, scoring 6 points. … Villanova head coach Jay Wright was in attendance to watch Jason Fraser. …
