Tristan Thompson

Tristan Thompson

Tristan Thompson a consensus top five prospect in the class of 2010 who was dismissed from St. Benedict’s Prep (NJ) team last week for public insubordination has found a new school. The talented forward who is verbally committed to (Texas) has decided to finish his year at Findlay Prep (NV) which is ranked #3 in the ESPN Rise Top 50 rankings.

Tristan has been granted eligibility and started to practice with the team, he will suit up for Findlay Prep (NV) this Friday when they travel to Dallas, TX to take on Duncanville (TX). Findlay Prep is currently undefeated with a record of 28-0. At Findlay Prep (NV) Tristan joins fellow Canadian in Corey Joseph along with fellow Texas commit Avery Bradley.

This is a huge pick up for such an already talent heavy team, it will be interesting to see how he gels with his new teammates. The team has a high level of chemistry so it will take him some time to figure out what his role will be with them. There is no denying the tremendous amount of talent that Tristan has along with his huge upside.

Findlay Prep (NV) has been invited to participate in the inaugural ESPN Rise National High School Invitational tournament being held in Bethesda, MD at Georgetown Prep on April 3-5th.

Tristan Thompson

Tristan Thompson a 6’9 combo forward from Canada who has been playing his high school basketball at St. Benedict’s Prep (NJ) and verbally committed to Texas, has been kicked off the team. Tristan Thompson was leading St. Benedict’s Prep (NJ) with 19.1 points and 9.6 rebounds per game.

This is a huge loss for St. Benedict’s Prep (NJ) who is 20-2 on the season. Tristan Thompson is a consensus top five player in the country for the class of 2010. He combines the ability to play on the wing and inside. He has a ton of upside to his game, where he continues to become even more polished on the perimeter along with his great leaping ability and solid job on the boards.

It will be interesting to see if sophomore and fellow Canadian Myck Kabongo will follow Tristan Thompson to whatever school he lands at for next season. Myck Kabongo who has also verbally committed to the University of Texas is considered a top five point guard prospect in the class of 2011.

St. Benedict’s Prep (NJ) plays on Saturday afternoon in Trenton, NJ at the Primetime Shootout event against Mountain State Academy (WV). The game tips off at 4:30 p.m.

#5 St. Patrick (NJ) Vs. #3 St. Benedict’s (NJ) Final 88-62

Dexter Strickland (St. Patrick, NJ)

Dexter Strickland (St. Patrick, NJ)

In one of the most highly anticipated games of the season two national powers met last night at the “RAC” on Rutgers campus.

This game was between # 3 St. Benedict’s (NJ) and # 5 St. Patrick (NJ) each team boost numerous division one players across their rosters. Some of these talented players include Dexter Strickland (2009/UNC/St. Patrick), Michael Gilchrist (2011/St. Patrick), Kyle Irving (2010/St. Patrick) and Paris Bennet (2009/GM/St. Patrick) from St. Patrick, NJ. The standout players from St. Benedict’s, NJ are Tristan Thompson (2010/Texas/St. Benedict’s), Myck Kabongo (2011/Texas/St. Benedict’s), Tamir Jackson (2009/Rice/St. Benedict’s) and Lamar Patterson (2009/Pitt/St. Benedict’s).

The game ended up drawing in some of the area’s top college coaches and staff, coaches in attendance included Rutgers head coach Fred Hill, Seton Hall head coach Bobby Gonzalez and staff, UConn assistant Andre LaFleur, St. John’s assistant Fred Quartlebaum and Penn assistant Mike Martin.

At the beginning of the game it looked like this one would live up to the hype with each team going back and forth at each other in the first quarter with St. Patrick holding a slim 21-17 lead over St. Benedict’s. Kyle Irving had 10 points in the opening period for St. Patrick and Tristan Thompson led St. Benedict’s with 9 points.

St. Patrick blew a close game wide open in the second quarter outscoring St. Benedict’s 24-8 in the period. They went into the half with a 45-25 lead and never looked back from then on cruising to a blowout victory 88-62.

It seemed like after the first quarter when St. Benedict’s was getting the ball inside to Thompson and scoring buckets they went away from that. It also seemed like they just didn’t come to play last night and were disinterested in the game.

This was a big-time statement game for St. Patrick, NJ who is predicted to win the Tournament of Champions of New Jersey. They showed everyone in the state that when there at full strength they are a team to be wrecking with when it comes playoff time.

The leading scorers for St. Patrick, NJ were senior Dexter Strickland 21 points and junior Kyle Irving 21 points. Super sophomore Michael Gilchrist chipped in 8 points.

The leading scorers for St. Benedict’s, NJ were junior Tristan Thompson 13, sophomore Myck Kabongo 13 points and senior Tamir Jackson added 10 points.

Each of these teams has big-time match-ups coming up in the next week. St. Benedict’s takes on undefeated and #1 team in the country Mater Dei (CA) at the Nike Extravaganza this Saturday February 7th at 12:00 a.m. eastern time on ESPNU. St. Patrick faces NYC powerhouse Lincoln on Friday February 13th at 7:00 p.m. eastern time on ESPN 2.

Michael Gilchrist (St. Patrick, NJ) Recruitment Update


By: Alex Schwartz (Northstar Basketball Blog)

Michael Gilchrist

Michael Gilchrist

Michael Gilchrist ’11 of St. Patrick’s (NJ) is arguably the number one baller in the sophomore class. A 6’7 combo forward, the sophomore sensation has carried the St. Pat’s Celtics this year, as North Carolina-signee Dexter Strickland ’09 has missed a lot of time and Kyrie Irving ’10 is still out due to transfer rules. Just yesterday, Gilchrist led his team to a come-from-behind win at Trenton Catholic (NJ), leading a massive fourth quarter comeback along with Paris Bennett ’09, a future George Mason Patriot. After Michael’s impressive 22-point performance, he was kind enough to talk to me for a few minutes. The lanky superstar, who said the Celtics pulled out yesterday’s win due to “just heart, heart really,” gave me his college list. The five lucky schools to be mentioned by Gilchrist were Seton Hall, UMass, Syracuse, Villanova, and Memphis, claiming offers from all five of them. Many people think he will end up as a Memphis Tiger, but only time will tell.

Update Dominic Cheek (St. Anthony’s, NJ) Final Two

Dominic Cheek

Dominic Cheek the standout wing from St. Anthony’s, NJ has narrowed it down to Kansas and Villanova. He is still set to announce today around 6 p.m. after practice.

There has been reports that he has decided to attend Villanova next season. This would give Nova one of the best incoming recruiting classes in the country, with Maalik Wayns (Roman Catholic, PA), Isaiah Armwood (Montrose Christian, MD) and Mouphtaou Yarou (Montrose Christian, MD). They also will get Duke transfer Taylor King next season.

If this is true that means Kansas has lost out on another top prospect after Xavier Henry picked Memphis over Kansas. They will now turn there focus on Lance Stephenson (Lincoln, NY) and John Wall (Word of God, NC).
