Francisco’s Finest: St. Bernard vs St. Anthony (Part 2)

LONG BEACH, Ca—It’s almost surreal being in a gym after almost fifteen months watching games on the “big screen”. However, after diving into St. John Bosco and Windward to break the ice, I could see myself getting back into the groove of venturing from one gym to another seeking out prospects for all levels of college basketball—and that is exactly what I received as I watched 2023 standout Tyler Rolison Tyler Rolison 6'0" | PG St. Bernard | 2023 (St. Bernard) slice-and-dice his way to the rim in leadin his team to a thrilling 55-50 victory over host St. Anthony. 

Joaquin Strong (St. Bernard)

2022, PF, 6-foot-7, 200 pounds

Joel’s Take: One of the better up-and-coming prospects in Southern California is Strong. This projected 4-man has a nice frame with good length and he has soft hands. When on the block he can either face-up and take his defender off the bounce or power through for the finish. He rebounds well in and out of his area and he’ll rim run for the finish. With continued polish
