Sosa puts up 41 points in win at IS8 tourney

Louisville recruit Edgar Sosa continues to tear up the competition at the IS8 league, considered one of the best events in the tri-state New York area Tuesday night, the 6-2 point guard from the Bronx went for 41 points in a 98-79 win over the Long Island Lightning and's Mike Sullivan has a full report.

Louisville recruit Edgar Sosa continued his smoldering play at IS8 at Tuesday night, torching Long Island Lightning (Walsh) for 41 points in Bingo's All-Stars' 98-79 win. The 6-foot-2 senior combo guard from Rice High School in New York City scored from virtually everywhere on the court -- the perimeter, the paint, off the drive, and off the pull. He darted through traffic to set up teammates for easy finishes and wreaked havoc in the open floor.

Sosa has been very effective thus far in the IS8 league, considered one of the best events in the tri-state New York area. He has demonstrated the ability to control a game from the backcourt with his handle and his shooting.

Bingo's also received 17 points from 6-foot-3 shooting guard James Feldeine from Cardinal Hayes, who recently committed to Quinnipiac. A pair of junior guards from Wings Academy in the Bronx, burly 6-foot-1, 210 pounder Josh Spivey and 6-foot-1 Kidani Brutus, added 10 points each. Andy Garcia, a 6-foot-5 1/2, 175 pound junior combo forward from Cardinal Hayes has also impressed at IS8 this fall, contributing 10 as well.

The Lightning, composed mostly of players from the All Hallows High School team, were led by shooting guard Darryl Crawford's 21 points. The senior is one of the most underappreciated players in the city. Guards Mark Lake and Nick Walsh added 17 and 12 in the loss.
