Blue Devil Prospects Prep Updates

Boykin, Scheyer, and Thomas all in action on Tuesday in various events around the nation

Future Blue Devil Jamal Boykin and his Fairfax Lion teammates advanced in the consolation bracket at the Les Schwab Invitational in Hillsboro, Ore. on Tuesday afternoon with a 77-58 victory over Lincoln High.

Once again it was Boykin leading the way for the Lions with a 30 point, nine rebound, and three blocks performance that helped Fairfax advance to face Benson on Wednesday.

The game was tied after one quarter of play, but then the Lions would use a 43-24 spurt over the next two quarters to put the game away.

Boykin finished 10-of-16 from the floor and 10-of-14 from the free throw line in the victory.

Also at Schwab, 2005 power forward target Uche Echefu rebounded from a dismal performance in the opening round to post 19 points, seven rebounds, and three blocks, but it wasn't enough as Montrose fell in overtime to Jefferson, 72-63.

After scoring 41 in his team's opening round upset defeat, Glenbrook North shooting guard Jon Scheyer finally got some help from his friends in the second game of the event.

Despite competing in the consolation bracket, Scheyer's team rolled to a 50-38 victory over Schaumburg behind 18 points from Scheyer.

Yesterday Scheyer reported that he is down to a final foursome of schools including Duke, Illinois, Arizona, and Wisconsin.

After scoring 23 points and grabbing 11 rebounds as his St. Benedict's team defeated Lakeland Kathleen 62-55, junior big forward Lance Thomas followed it up with 13 points and eight rebounds to help the Gray Bees to an easy 61-40 victory over Eustis.
