Five Takeaways: DeMatha vs Rock Creek
Posted On: 03/6/18 12:10 PM
On Monday night I attended the Maryland State Private School Championship between DeMatha and Rock Creek. DeMatha won by a final score of 64-58 and below I break down five takeaways from the game.
Hunter Dickinson Looked Like A Top 10 Player In The Country
2020 Hunter Dickinson of DeMatha notched a career best against Rock Creek last night scoring 31 points in about every way possible. He is already getting tons of national attention and with performances like last night, he deserves all the talk he is receiving for being a top ten player in his 2020 graduating class.
Jermaine Harris Will Be Great At Rhode Island
Jermaine Harris ended his high school career on Monday night but did not go down without a fight. He will be a great presence down low in the post on offense and defense. He will get tons of rebounds at the next level and has shown that he can score from his jump shot as well as in the paint with his back to the basket.
Justin Moore Looks Close To 100 Percent
Coming off ACL surgery, the 2019 guard did not look like he was fully healthy all year long but ever since the postseason started for DeMatha, Moore is playing his best basketball. He had 22 points and 7 rebounds last night in the Stags victory. Maryland and Villanova do not seem bothered by his injury as they were in attendance last night and have been constantly tracking him all year long.
Jermaine Harris and Hunter Dickinson Can Shoot
We knew it was going to be a fun battle down low between Harris and Dickinson but I do not think a lot of us predicted for them to shoot as well as they did. They both made three triples and at one point during the game they were going back and forth matching each other on made shots.
DeMatha Is On A Roll
A lot of people including myself predicted DeMatha to be the best team in the area when the season started. They finished second in the WCAC to finish the regular season and then ended up winning the conference tournament. With the Maryland State Championship under their belt they now have two trophies this postseason. They will be looking to finish the triple crown this weekend when they will participate in the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament.
