Price Is Right With Bingo All Stars

One of Connecticut's top recruits was in action yesterday afternoon at the IS8 playoffs

Yes, it's going to be difficult for the Connecticut basketball program to repeat for a National Championship in 2004-2005. However, having incoming freshmen like A.J. Price of Amityville High School will only increase the odds of achieving such a tough task.

Price continued to show why he is one of the country's top players in the 2004 class. He rattled home 22 points, including two three-pointers to lead the Bingo All Stars to a 63-53 victory over the New York City Heat.

The Bingo All Stars led 20-16 after the first quarter, 37-23 at the half, and 44-43 heading into the fourth quarter. Price seemed more offensively minded in the first three quarters. In the final frame, Price concerned himself more with protecting the ball and finding his teammates for layups.

After Price is done with the playoffs at IS8, it's likely he will head to Connecticut for some summer class work. A.J.'s mom told us yesterday afternoon that her son wants to get off to a good start academically and will likely take six course credits in the summer.

Mrs. Price also indicated her son was ready to get himself in college ready shape and UCONN ready shape by working with the trainers at the University of Connecticut.
