We caught a metro east battle on Monday night between two up and coming squads in Mascoutah and Highland.  It was close throughout, but Mascoutah’s Justin KingJustinKing6'3" | PGMascoutah | 2022StateIL had the best game of his career and that was the difference as Mascoutah won on the road 51-45.  We look at the game in our 5 Takeaways: Mascoutah vs Highland!

 

Justin KingJustinKing6'3" | PGMascoutah | 2022StateIL Performance of Career

I have seen Mascoutah 6’4” point guard Justin KingJustinKing6'3" | PGMascoutah | 2022StateIL play about as much as any prospect in the 2022 class.  Monday night was absolutely the best I have ever seen him.  He was dominant from the jump, did it on both ends, and most importantly played with the dog that we have been waiting to emerge!  It started off with his defense as he got three steals early where he converted for two dunks and an assist.  Utilizes his length to pick the pocket of his opponent.  So smooth in transition turning defense to offense.  Silky smooth driver that had several slithering drives for layups.  Passing was on point as well dishing off to his teammates in the paint when the defense collapsed on him.  What is left?  Oh yea
