-Nasir Robinson’s Chester team is taking on Jeanette on Friday night at the Prime Time Shootout in Villanova, a competition that St. Anthony (NJ)- Travon Woodall’s team- is playing in. That’s right, Nasir Robinson is going up against Terrell Pryor. I’ll let everybody know how that one goes.
-Ashton Gibbs’ Seton Hall Prep team beat Morris Knolls 78-42 on Wednesday night, with our new guard pouring in 32 points, including 7 baskets from beyond the arc- very impressive numbers.
-Schenley shooting guard Deandre Kane decommitted from Duquesne, and he’s very interested in Pitt although he has no offer. While he does lead the WPIAL with 30.7 ppg, I don’t see him coming to Pitt because he’s not a Big East caliber player, plus we already have two guards in this recruiting class. He might come on as a preferred walk-on, and I know DeJuan has been pressing for him to come be a Panther.
EDIT: Robinson’s Chester team beat Jeanette 80-70 behind Robinson’s 18 points and 13 rebounds. The Clippers move to 22-1 and will probably be seeded first in the District 1 tournament, with seedings announced tomorrow. “Robinson has given up parts of his game this season for the betterment of the team. He’s looked to pass first before shooting in many games, and has been content on doing all the nitty-gritty work of rebounding and providing interior defense. But last night, he played with a certain vigor, maybe because Pryor played opposite of him.” This sounds exactly like the kind of kid that Dixon loves to coach, and hopefully he’ll be a great player for the Panthers for all four years.
