I think to get him would be our greatest get ever and a win tonight vs Duke would be our greatest victory ever for our basketball program.

Tough call. Winning the ACC tournament against North Carolina in our last game in the ACC - on a last second shot off a jump ball (won by Kevin Joyce against a 7'0 player) is also up there.

A win tonight would put us in the Sweet 16 and give us a victory over a traditional ACC powerhouse. But the win in 1971 was also a win over a traditional ACC power and put us in the Sweet 16 - the ACC champ got a bye into the Sweet 16.

Might be a 1A and 1B situation.

Yeah, Duke is one of the other teams that he would be looking at - hard to make the argument that he can't win the big one here. Nice that it happened in his backyard too (although he is actually from Florence - would be nice to pull the Florence Daily Double with ZW and XT).

If we can mix in some one and doners with 4 year guys that develop into good experienced players, we will have a team that can compete with anyone. I hope Zion sees that, and that he also sees how Frank cares about his players, and vice versa.

Zion has it all on offense. Frank could really complete his development on defense.

Hey, does Zion play in private school league? Just asking because in his highlight films the competition looks a little underdeveloped.

Underdeveloped being rather generous. He completely outclasses his opponents in every physical category

Yeah, but look up Zion's mix tapes on You Tube. The kid regularly attends camps and other leagues and he still looks dominant against kids his height and larger.

Yes, he plays in a private school league and, yes, his usual competition is not very challenging. Most of the kids look like they shouldn't even be playing JV. He has played in a couple of summer leagues and the stats from those are referenced earlier in this thread. He did very well in those camps, but his numbers were understandably lower than his high school games since he was going up against better competition. It'll be interesting to see what he does this summer. He's definitely a great talent but I don't take much away from his high school game tapes.

Don't forget this is the same league Aja Wilson came from.Also,notice that many of the high profile national recruits from SC that play in the SCHSL feel the need to transfer to the Oak Hills of the world for better competion.As a whole basketball in SC public or private is not thought that highly of.
