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.
