What was the outcome?

St. John’s and Bullis played four quarters with each quarter starting at 0-0. St. John’s won the 1st quarter with a score of 21-7, Bullis won the 2nd quarter 22-17, St. John’s beat Bullis 15-5 in the 3rd quarter and Bullis beat St. John’s 15-13 in the 4th quarter. If it was St. John’s or Bullis, the reason a team would win a quarter was because of their guard play.

Who was the dominant player on the court?

Without a doubt it was Ishmael Leggett. The 2020 point guard stood out all game long as he was in attack mode in every quarter. Bullis did not have an answer for his transition layup finishes and his ability to explode to the rim. He hit jumpers from all over the court and really looks like a prospect ready to take that next step in his game.

Who stood out for Bullis?

The two guys that led the way for Bullis were 2019 Nendah Tarke and 2020 Malcolm Alexander. Tarke is currently slated at 46 in our “2019 Maryland/DC rankings” and Alexander is currently 49th in the “2020 Maryland/DC rankings”.

Who is new to St. John’s?

The Cadets brought in two junior transfers in 6’3 point guard John Wilson and 6’6 forward John “Mikey” Square. Square will be ready to take on a big role down low for St. John’s. The Cadets lost some post presence due to graduation so Square will come and expect to play pivotal minutes right away. Wilson was smooth last night with the ball in his hands leading the offense for St. John’s.

What to expect from the teams this season?

This season is going to be another grind for both of these teams. They both play in well respected conferences with a lot of other good teams. Right now St. John’s starts at 8 in our initial “DMV Top 30 Power Rankings” and Bullis starts at 14. On paper we expect them to finish middle of the pack/top half on their conferences but if they can squeak out a few big wins here and there, they could end up finishing closer to the top.
