Monday night kicked off action in the Chicago Catholic League.  Well kind of.  Fenwick was supposed to play Loyola, but because of covid precautions they hosted Mt. Carmel.  It was a thriller that went to OT and came down to the best player on the floor making the play of the game as the clock ticked down.  Here are our Top Performers: Fenwick vs Mt. Carmel.

 

Bryce HopkinsBryceHopkins6'7" | PFFenwick | 2021State#32NationIL (Fenwick – 2021)

Hopkins is a Kentucky signee and the #2 prospect in the state.  He is preseason co-favorite for Mr. Basketball and PHI Player of the Year.  Early on he was a little tentative, but then he got it going by taking it right at Mt. Carmel splitting the defense.  For such a physically player he is actually very light on his feet and shifty in tight spaces.  That was what he was most effective at throughout the game.  Getting the defense back peddling and then having a go either way for buckets.  Scored on numerous occasions going right at his man then making a move at the last minute.  Finished with either hand at the rim.  Played quite a bit as the primary ball handler for Fenwick
