DeMatha vs. Gonzaga Tonight, 8:15 p.m.

stephen rileyCorrespondent IMarch 20, 2010

Two of the more storied high schools in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference will meet tonight in Frostburg, Md for the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament championship. It will be the fourth meeting this season between the two rivals. DeMatha (32-3) has taken the last two meetings against Gonzaga (27-6) but Gonzaga has won the ACIT for the last two seasons.

Both teams feature high profile point guards. The DeMatha Stags are led by WCAC Player of the Year Quinn Cook (who’s been deadly from three point land in two games so far this tourney) while the Gonzaga Eagles are led by Duke-bound Tyler Thornton. DeMatha is one of the most talented high school teams that I’ve ever seen. They’re deep, fast and athletic and anything else you can associate with a dominant basketball team. The Eagles aren’t as deep as the Stags but when their backcourt of Thornton and Cedrick Lindsay are playing well, they’re tough to beat.

Follow tonight on Twitter at 8:15 p.m. and be sure to check afro.com or back here for your full tournament recap tomorrow.
