With the addition of Melo Trimble and Roddy Peters many experts do not believe the hunt remains for St Joe’s Phil Booth and St Frances’ Dwayne Morgan. After watching these 2 last night, there is a talent there is very special. Turgeon has always proved he is not scared to play his 5 best players no matter what position. My gut feel is that he wants both in the worst way.
Coach Turgeon, Bino, IU Coach Tom Crean, Temple Coach Fran Dunphy among many others were all in the house tonight to watch a plethora of future Division 1 players on display on Chase St at a packed St Frances Gym. It should be noted that Coach Turgeon arrived 90 minutes early and watched the JV game intently. Terrapin targets Dwayne Morgan and Phil Booth had quiet first halves but really picked up their games as the battle progressed. The video above is of Dwayne morgan scoring just before halftime.
Let me put this simply–Phil Booth a 6’3 170 sharpshooter is simply stupendous. I watched him for 3 days at the MIAA Series at Stevenson. His talents bely his young age and he as smooth a player as you can imagine. Phil and parents were at Maryland on Monday checking out the campus, according to terrapin times.com. Tuesday it’s Roddy Peters turn. Enough said.
2013 recruits, Phil Booth and Kameron Williams stole the show this afternoon at Stevenson College Gym. By the way what a phenomenal venue to have this tourney in. The 2 lads from Mount St Joe were stellar as they had to be to help engineer a victory over #2 seed John Carroll. The 2 Juniors are exceptionally smooth shooters who excel at all facets of the game. Phil Booth has been offered a scholarship from the Terrapins. Saturday night sharpshooter Greg Brown scored 29 for Archbishop Spalding in a losing effort to Mount St Joe’s. Spalding is coached by former Terrapin great Derrick Lewis, who received Coach Of the Year honors in the Catholic League. My good friend Pat McKindles is Derrick’s assistant.
