Unknowns and Undervalued

Posted On: 11/21/19 10:40 PM

On Thursday night, I took in four games as part of the annual St. Pete High Preseason Shootout.


Game 1 - Tampa Bay Tech 83, Dixie Hollins 42

Game 2 - Boca Ciega 66, Jesuit 63

Game 3 - Berkeley Prep 50, Sarasota Riverview 44

Game 4 - St. Pete 69, Strawberry Crest 33

Here's a look at the standouts from the evening.

Berkeley Prep gets a complete effort from starting five

47 of the 50 points for Berkeley Prep came from its starting five. 2021 6'2" forward Mark Mulfinger led the way with a scrappy effort with 11 points. He is a true team player, who battles on the boards and thrives in his role. 2020 6'1" guard Varun Ajjarupu (10 points), 2020 6' guard Kegan Karnes (9 points) and 2020 6' guard RJ Garcia (8 points) all controlled the tempo and made key buckets. 2022 6'6" forward CJ Hawkins (9 points) dug in deep in the second half after being held scoreless in the first half. The Buccaneers play close-knit ball and are going to be in most games all season.

Athletic trio help Tech cruise

Over 72 percent of Tampa Bay Tech's 83 points came from the trio of 2021 6'1"
