In a match-up of Number 1 vs Number 1, Totino-Grace beat Park Center by a score in an excellent game.  Top ten player performances?  Here you go!

One. Demarion Watson Demarion Watson 6'8" | SF Totino-Grace | 2022 State #150 Nation MN of Totino-Grace (2022).  Watson was the game changer.   He scored 17 points, blocked seven shots, and grabbed eight boards.  More importantly Watson made five of his last six shots including three threes and one of those threes was late, and clutch.  Watson’s defensive impact not only blocked shots but his length caused Carrington a lot of problems forcing misses in the second half.  

Two.  Zy’lerre Stewart of Totino-Grace (2024)   The Park Center Pirates are a strong defensive team but I don’t think they took into account what Stewart could do nor did they seem to locate him quickly each possession.  Stewart’s ability to get to the cup and finish or create was essential to this win.  The Eagles sophomore has a toughness that his team loves and I think big things are ahead for his future. 

Three.  Braeden Carrington Braeden Carrington 6'4" | SG Park Center | 2022 State #141 Nation MN of Park Center (2022).  Carrington broke this game open early using that beautiful stroke after a dribble to lift into space and hit four first half threes.
