In what became an instant classic, Pine Crest (Ft. Lauderdale) and Santa Fe (Alachua) battled it out today for the FHSAA Class 4A State Championship. The highly anticipated matchup boasted two of Florida’s best teams and was full of high collegiate talent. Here’s how the game panned out: 

Santa Fe v. Pine Crest, FHSAA Class 4A Finals, 83-90 (2OT)

Here were the game standouts:

Amen Thompson, Pine Crest, 6’5", 2022

Thompson put on one of the craziest performances I’ve ever seen in today’s game. Thompson finished with 43 points and 13 rebounds, as well as 8 steals. Thompson is lanky scorer with the size of a good combo guard, and is strong enough to draw contact and get to the line. He can change his shot in the air with ease and is dangerous around the rim. He is also athletic and can block shots and disrupt passing lanes. With twin brother Ausar fouling out in the early 4th quarter, Amen completely took over and showed that he has the ability to completely dominate a game. He walks away with a state championship and the hope for another one in his future.
