With bracket play beginning this afternoon, the four schools that advanced to the semifinals of DePaul's team camp were Morgan Park, Thea Bowman (Gary, Indiana), Simeon, and Proviso East.
A bench-clearing brawl ended up cancelling the semifinal between Morgan Park and Proviso East. It was a shame that a fight had to end what was shaping up to be quite a duel between 2013 guards Billy Garrett, Jr. of Morgan Park and Sterling Brown of Proviso East.
Bowman was awarded the championship after Stephan Hawkins tipped in the game-winning shot to defeat Simeon in the other semi-final.
- Earlier in the day, future Simeon guard Jaylon Tate (Class of 2013) paid the camp a visit. Tate wasn't there to play with the Wolverines though. Instead he and his mother stopped by for an unofficial visit with DePaul coach Oliver Purnell.
- The incoming freshman class at DePaul also stopped by to check out the camp today.
- Curie Class of 2014 big man Cliff Alexander led the Condors to the quarterfinals of the camp. Alexander earned a scholarship offer from Purnell today in recognition of his outstanding play throughout the camp.
- Be sure to check out our review of the prospects at Day 1 of the team camp in the below report.
