I needed to take a week off after the season ended last week, but I'm back now and will continue to talk college and high school hoops here during the offseason. Here are a couple of odds and ends in bullet form:
-Hawk Hill Hardwood is finally up on Twitter. Feel free to follow me here.
-Earlier this week, Vaux High sophomore guard Rysheed Jordan drew a crowd as his team downed Prep Charter 59-44. Among the coaches watching the game were SJU head coach Phil Martelli, Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint, and Rutgers assistant Jimmy Martelli. Jordan had 14 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals in the win. Ted Silary's article on the game can be found here. Vaux faces off against Imhotep Charter tonight at Southern High.
-In other playoff action, Constitution defeated Reading Central Catholic on a game-winning layup by Abdul King. Constitution trailed by 10 with 6 minutes remaining, but came back to advance. Ted Silary's article on that game can be found here. They will face Math, Civics, and Sciences on Tuesday.
-Plymouth-Whitemarsh is currently playing Red Land at the Geigle Complex in Reading. The AAAA quarterfinals game will pit PW's star senior, Jaylen Bond, against a talented Red Land front-court. Red Land starts 6'11 senior Steve Zack, who is headed to La Salle next year, and 6'9 junior Mike Zangari, who is being recruited by Saint Joseph's among others.
