EMERSON, Ga. - University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino was front and center for Courtney Ramey vs. Romeo Langford on Friday night in the adidas Gauntlet event.

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino was front and center on Friday night.

It was a game in the adidas Gauntlet event in the Atlanta area against one of his 2018 commitments - Courtney Ramey - and his biggest target in the '18 class - Romeo Langford - at the LakePoint Champions Center.

Langford, the No. 3 prospect in the '18 class from New Albany, Ind., led his Twenty-Two Vision team to a victory but both players put up some impressive numbers in front of Pitino and several other high-profile coaches.

"It was a lot of fun," Langford said. "They're a good team. This is just the second week we have played together as a team and I think we are playing pretty much as a team overall. I like these guys."

Langford was 7 of 17 from the field, including 2 of 6 from three-point range, and finished with 20 points and four rebounds. He also had one blocked shot, one steal, one assist and three turnovers in 31 minutes of play,

The 6-foot-5 Langford said after the game he didn't have plans on cutting his list anytime soon.

Ramey is a 6-foot-3 point guard from Webster Groves, Mo., who finished with 19 points, seven rebounds, seven steals and four assists in 29 minutes. He was just 4 of 10 from the field but finished 11 of 13 from the free-throw line.

Ramey's team - the Ramey Jets United - hit just 17 of 53 from the field, including 3 of 18 three-pointers.

"It was a great battle and (Langford) made some tough shots," Ramey said. "But his team came out with the win. He's a great player and I would love to have him with me and Anfernee Simons at Louisville."

Ramey said he has been doing some recruiting for the Cardinals.

"I think a week ago, coach (Rick Pitino) texted me and said we are looking for a small forward do you have any suggestions?" Ramey said. "I gave him a couple of games."

The event continues in the Atlanta area until Sunday.
