Pittsburgh Junior Attracting Philadelphia Attention

For Saint Joseph's head coach Phil Martelli and Temple assistant coach Dave Duke to be sitting next to one another watching a high school basketball game is nothing new. In fact, for a number of reasons, most notably the proximity of the two schools to one another, Temple and Saint Joseph's find themselves duking it out for a number of players. The fact that the two coaches were sitting at a gym in Pittsburgh is the part that is most surprising. Last Tuesday night, the two coaches both found themselves in Pittsburgh, watching 6'10 Lincoln Park junior Devontae Watson.

In front of the two coaches, Watson had 31 points, 22 rebounds, and 11 blocks. According to The Beaver County Times (here), both Temple and Saint Joseph's have offered the junior center a scholarship. Temple and SJU have also both offered 6'6 wing Sheldon Jeter from Beaver Falls High School in Pittsburgh.
