Local Coaches Watch on as Friends' Central Upends ANC

On Wednesday night, in the frigid cold, three of the area's most recognizable college coaches were seated in a high school gym in Bryn Athyn. What would drag Phil Martelli, Fran Dunphy, and Jay Wright to a suburban high school gym on a 25-degree December night? How about two of the most talented teams in the area. Academy of the New Church boasts a starting frontcourt with players committed to Pitt, Villanova, and Syracuse. On the other side of the ball, Friends' Central stars one of the best juniors in the nation, in 6'8 forward Amile Jefferson. They also feature one of the better unsigned seniors around: athletic combo guard Devin Coleman.

While I was unable to attend the game, Rick O'Brien of the Inquirer was on hand. His write-up of the game is below, and it's a good one.

Worth highlighting from the article are the college lists of both Amile Jefferson and Devin Coleman. Coleman, who had 19 points and 11 boards, said that he is hearing from "Saint Joseph's, La Salle, Rice, and Maryland." His teammate, Amile Jefferson, who went for 12 and 12, mentioned visits to Temple, Villanova, Maryland, Georgetown, and Duke. He also said that he is considering "Syracuse, North Carolina, and Saint Joseph's."
