It worked. Jones erupted for 38 points.
But an important part of this process was the paly of Dwan McMillan, who hails from Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn, New York. McMillan will compete this season for Danny Hurley at St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, New Jersey.
"Dwan has a lot of talent," Charles said. "He can get to the basket and score. And he can find his teammates with his passes."
McMillan scored 19 points and had six assists. He also drained a couple of jumpers to keep his defender honest. "He is very aggressive," Charles said.
A member of the 2008 class, McMillan has some time to polish his individual game. But he has some interest from schools already.
McMillan has plenty of time to work on his game. He will continue to play for Charles' Panthers program at IS8 on weekends.
