Check out the full recaps from each game at the Top 80


This was a close game as each team battled back and forth. The story of the game was 6'10" freshman Mark Williams. The lengthy forward showed off his complete skill set as he finished with 26 points and did so through a variety of rim runs, put backs and made 3s. Big EJ Williams, a 6'10" 2018 center showed touch around the basket as the lefty finished with 10 points and a number of rebounds.

For Team 2 6'8" 2018 Josh Whelan led the way with 16 points. He was a scrappy player who did a lot of the dirty work with good touch. 5'9" junior point guard Titus Lawrence made his way into the lane as he wanted. He is a quick player who plays with a chip on his shoulder. Tough.

Team 1 - 70
