News and Notes 8/24/08 7:23 PM

-Michigan is looking really good for Nate Lubick a 6'8 F from Southborough, MA/St. Mark's and Trey Ziegler a 6'5 G from Mt. Pleasant, MI/High. Both are 2010 prospects, and top 25-30 players nationally.

-Chris Driscoll, General Manager of the BABC elite travel team, has informed us that both of his star 2010 guards Phil Pressey of Dallas, TX/Episcopal School and Gerard Coleman of Tilton, NH/Schools recruiting is in the early stages...but as of right now, Pressey's list includes UCONN, Texas, Missouri, Florida, and Providence. Coleman's has solid offers from UCONN, Louisville,Providence, Kansas State, Boston College, Clemson, Purdue, Wake Forest, LSU and Georgia Tech.

-Darren Washington, a 6'9 2011 C from Detroit, MI/Southeastern has picked up an offer from Cleveland St. Don't be surprised if this kid goes high major. He will most likely be 7 feet, he plays extremely hard, and has a passion for the game. Expect Detroit Southeastern to have 3 high major players in the 2011 class, with Washington, 6'8 PF Percy Gibson and 6'5 G Brandan Kearney.

-Although the Elite 24 Boost Mobile Game was nothing more than a open gym run, and even open gym's have more structure, players that did play well included Lance Stephenson 2009 6'5 Wing Brooklyn,NY/Lincoln, Dominic Cheek 2009 6'6 Wing Jersey City, NJ/St. Anthony's, 2009 Dexter Strickland 6'3 Wing Elizabeth, NJ/St. Patrick's, and Brandon Knight 6'3 2010 PG Ft. Lauderdale, FL/Pinecrest.

-We are hearing that St. John's could be the college destination of 6'6 Wing Kevin Parrom of South Kent, CT/Prep and 6'5 Wing Lance Stephenson of Brooklyn, NY/Lincoln. Expect St. John's recruiting to take off with the recent hires of two New York City travel basketball powerhouse coaches Oz Cross of the NY Panthers and Kimani Young of New Heights.

-Some expect Marc Loving a 6'5 Wing from Toledo, OH/Deveaux Middle to be the best player ever from Toledo. That's saying something since former NBA Player Jimmy Jackson and McDonald's All-American William Buford are both from Toledo. Loving is in the class of 2013.

I have a hard time believing Zeigler will pick a school that by the time he gets there will have missed the NCAA tourney 12 straight years. He and his dad are smarter than that.
