WASHINGTON, DC — Gonzaga College High School defeated St. John’s College High School by a final score of 55-50 earlier this evening. Here are the 10 best from this intriguing matchup between two respectively formidable teams.

EAGLES FOLLOW DREAD’S LEAD

Myles Dread did a bit of everything in order to help his team get this important win. The Penn State commit, who scored a team-high 19 points, also chipped in with 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 made threes. Dread’s continuously improving skill set, along with his strength, high basketball IQ, and unselfishness make him almost unplayable at this level.

MORSELL CONTINUES TO SHOW SIGNS OF IMPROVEMENT

The biggest offensive threat for St. John’s in this game was Casey Morsell, and this really wasn’t even debatable. The highly touted class of 2019 recruit showed a versatile offensive skill set, and the ability to make shots from all over the floor as well as finish inside with either hand in traffic. Morsell came up with one of the best plays of the game when he rejected an opponent’s dunk attempt at the rim.

SOPHOMORES EMERGING FOR GONZAGA

Terrance Williams, Myles Stute, and Chuck Harris each made key contributions to help their team secure this victory. Williams was a big reason why the Eagles won the battle of the boards. The 6’7 sophomore pulled down a game-high 12 boards, while also adding 4 assists. Myles Stute came off the bench and provided energy. The athletic wing recorded 8 points and 6 rebounds. Chuck Harris started at the point and scored 11 points, including the go ahead three pointer with under a minute left. He also added 5 rebounds and two assists.

D LO FLASHES BRILLIANCE FOR SJC

2020 guard DeLonnie Hunt was the standout off the bench for the Cadets. The silky smooth southpaw scored 5 points, including a timely three pointer from the corner in late the fourth quarter. Hunt is a pesky perimeter defender on the ball who consistently gets in the lane and creates for his teammates, but can also put the ball in the whole when asked.

QUICK HITS
