Native Son Returns Home

Corey Fisher pays a visit to NYC.

Corey Fisher has taken this ride many times; NJ Turnpike, George Washington Bridge, Cross Bronx Expressway. Yesterday the native son returned to his old stomping grounds to help St. Patrick's defeat traditional NYC powerhouse St. Raymond's.

With a dazzling display of ball handling skills Fisher seemed to penetrate at will against a team that was supposed to be very familiar with his exploits. Fisher finished with 16 points and a handful of assists to help keep the Bronx crowd quiet and entertained for most of the game.

In what's becoming a familiar trend Corey is playing his best games against top competition and on the biggest stages. With his college choice already made (Villanova), Fisher seems much more relaxed, focused and confident. The result has been the ability to make game changing plays when his team needs a spark. Witness yesterday when he steals the ball for a lay-up, turns to get back on defense and does a pirouette to steal the inbounds pass dribble to the corner to nail a three.

These plays have become common place for the junior guard who is starting to convert the former non-believers into believers with his stellar play as of late. Ask Lute Olsen who watched up close and personal as Corey helped St. Pat's destroy a highly ranked Dominguez team led by highly touted sophomore guard Brandon Jennings with a 26 point effort.

No rest for the weary though, Corey still has to help St. Pat's do battle with American Christian led by sophomore sensation Tyreke Evans and Episcopal led by Wayne “Duke” Ellington and Gerald Henderson arguably the best 2 man combination in the country.

And the beat goes on……….
