St.Michael’s College 51st Annual Tournament: Day 3 Recap

Posted on 09. Jan, 2011 by Nolan Shulman in Canada Spotlight, High School, Tournaments


Day three at the St.Michael's College 51st Annual Tournament was the best day yet.  It started with two close games on the consolation side, then gave us an opportunity to watch the stronger teams remaining in the championship bracket flex their muscles.  Here's a look at the results, play of the day, and standout prospects.  



Consolation Semi-Finals
G13: Henry Carr 60 (Richard Audu 12) - Oakwood 55 (Kevin Blake 21)
G14: Loyola (Oakville) 67 (Mike Lafricain 22) - Holy Names (Windsor) 61 (R. Osuntola 23)

Championship Quarter-Finals
G15: Mother Teresa 49 (Adika Peter-McNeilly 20) - Holy Trinity (Oakville) 46 (Anthony Pate 15)
G16: Denison 76 (Kevin Pangos 36) - Jarvis 55 (Aaron Shadrach 14)
G17: Vaughan 51 (Cy Richard-Samuels 10) - Beal (London) 34 (Chauvan Miller-Bennett 9)
G18: Eastern Commerce 67 (Kevin Kambola 22) - Pickering 47 (Shaquille Francis & Asher Tulloch-Lewis 13)



It wasn't one play that we felt worthy of being play of the day, but rather an entire performance.  For those of us lucky to attend, we were treated to a show.  For those of you who got sidelined by the snow, here's a look at raw highlights from Kevin Pangos 36 point performance.  




Mike Lafricain, Loyola (Oakville) (5-10, 2011, PG)

Mike once again displayed an outstanding overall floor game.  He's got tremendous IQ and court vision, and is a classic pass first point guard.  He can run a team at full speed or in the half court, and is capable of changing speeds better than he's given credit for.   His jump shot is still a work in progress but looks to be improving steadily over the last 10 months.  We've been high on Mike for a while now, and day 3 only strengthened how we feel about his upside. 

Isaiah Watkins, Oakwood (6-6, 2013, PF)

Isaiah is a load inside in Toronto high school basketball.  He has a body built for contact and he's not afraid to use it.  He showed the ability to play with his back to the basket, with our favorite move being his right hook over his left shoulder.  He also proved he can play facing the basket, as his jump shot and ball handling are rapidly climbing the curve.  He hasn't fully morphed into a hybrid four, but he's well on his way.  

Rotomi Osuntola Jr., Holy Names (6-5, 2011, F)

There's nothing better as recruiting analyst then finding a sleeper and that's exactly what we found watching Junior for the first time.   He's got a great wingspan and terrific feet, allowing him to guard multiple positions and giving him a base to potentially become a lockdown defender in the CIS.   Junior is outstanding in transition, runs the floor like a guard, and has the bounce to finish at the rim in traffic.  While he still needs to upgrade his ball skills, he's certainly a guy we should have had on our radar by now.  Luckily we're not the only ones who let him slip though the cracks.  Junior has exactly 1 CIS offer.  It's fitting that it comes from University of Windsor,  as they're located right in Junior's backyard.  

Kevin Pangos, Dr. Denison (6-1, 2011, PG)  

Not many negatives to draw from Kevin's performance vs. Jarvis, as he carved them up for 36 points and double digit assists.  He didn't turn it over, controlled tempo at all times, and showed off a brand new floater which will allow him to be effective in the gaps at the next level as guys get bigger.  While it was his ability to score the basketball which had the crowd buzzing, I was impressed with his ability to find his teammates in spots they were comfortable in.  Kevin has great awareness of the capabilities of his teammates and as a result probably gets more out of them then they even realized they can give.  That's the ultimate compliment you can give a high level point guard, and there's little doubt that that's exactly what Kevin is.  

Braydon Gohn, Dr. Denison (6-5, 2011, PF) 

While Kevin gets 99% of the shine at Dr.Denison, there is no way they are playing in the semi finals without Brayden Gohn.  He was outstanding vs. Jarvis and gave Denison a viable 2nd scoring option.   He made open shots, defended the post, ran the floor, set good screens, etc…  Basically, Brayden did his job and did it well.  He doesn't try and do more than he's capable of, he just plays the game as hard as he can with the skill set he's got.  He may not ever be placed in the limelight at Denison with Kevin in town, but that doesn't mean his efforts have gone unnoticed !!
