It seems to be carrying over to games. He scored 33 points to lead the Skyhawks to an impressive 71-54 victory over Spring Valley on Monday night in the Chick-fil-A Classic. (The State)

Seventh Woods once turned down the Ellen DeGeneres Show

Ellen DeGeneres is one of the biggest stars on the planet with one of the biggest daytime talk shows in history, this much you know; what may surprise you is that once upon a time, roughly three years ago, reps from her show reached out to a 14-year-old basketball prodigy named Seventh Woods.

City of Palms showcases talented junior Kevin Knox

One of the best things about having so many elite players at the City of Palms Classic is the opportunity for comparisons. Scout.com’s No. 10 junior, Kevin Knox of Tampa (Fla.) Catholic, and No. 4 junior, Michael Porter Jr., of Father Tolton (Columbia, Mo.) played in back-to-back games. Knox, who is listed at 6-8 and 195 pounds, had 27 points and 12 rebounds to lead his team to a 66-54 win. (USA Today)

Future Heel Brandon Robinson Evolving

Covering basketball recruiting can sometimes be a tough job. Some kids never answer the phone or texts. Some won't do interviews, period, unless you catch them in person. Even then, some of them might sneak out. Some won't really offer up much information in response to the best probing questions....Brandon Robinson does not fit into that category. He's an open book.

Rawle Alkins scores 51 points in game, 33 in second half

Rarely do you see high school players score more than 30 points in a game. The quarters are shorter, there is no shot clock, and there is generally less scoring.

With UNC offer, life changes quickly for Rechon Black

Three days earlier, Roy Williams had come to Harrisburg to watch Rechon play against Hickory Ridge. And when the Blacks called Williams Thursday, “He said that in North Carolina history, there were only three kids that had been offered scholarships as sophomores, and that was Reggie Bullock, Kendall Marshall...” Williams paused. “...and Rechon Black,” Rechon's father recalled.
