The opening game of the 2018 Championship Showdown hosted by Shawnee Mission East saw Olathe East defeat St. James Academy 70-57 behind a balanced scoring attack as four players cored between 12 and 15 points for the Hawks.

Here, Prep Hoops Kansas takes a look at ten things that stood out in the contest.

MVP: Charlie Bell (6’5, F, 2019, Olathe East). Bell is an underrated forward who can play out of the high post, step out and shoot a 3 and as he showed on Tuesday, is a terrific rebounder with good, strong hands. He scored 15 points and hauled in a game-high 14 rebounds.
