The Memphis-bound Robinson was a human-highlight film as St. Patrick's got the 6th annual Academy National Invitational going with a lone game on Wednesday night.
Robinson finished with 30 points on eight dunks. Fisher (Villanova) added 28 points in a sub-par performance for the senior guard.
Strickland, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound sophomore, hardly put up eye-popping numbers – but he also hardly played like a sophomore.
Unlike Fisher, Strickland let the game come to him. He didn't take any ill-advised shots, make nearly all the correct decisions and played hard for every minute he was on the court.
Strickland finished with nine points, six rebounds and four assists, but he only attempted a half-dozen shots from the field.
``He has a chance to be a really good player," St. Pat's coach Kevin Boyle said after the 77-68 win against Alief Hastings. "He can score in a variety of ways and it's tough to stop him. He reminds me a little bit of Dewayne Wade." Strickland was unselfish, slithered to the basket virtually whenever he wanted and showed he was more poised than his senior teammates.
``In the summer, it's just me and Paris Bennett," Strickland said of his contrasting roles from the summer to the high school season. "Jeff Robinson and Corey are the two main guys on the team, so I need to do other things besides score."
COACHES IN ATTENDANCE
Believe it or not, we spotted just one coach for the St. Pat's-Alief Hastings game and it was Florida assistant Donnie Jones.
