High School Basketball Over The Weekend - Frank Spencer Classic

Marcus ShockleyCorrespondent IDecember 24, 2008

This weekend is the conclusion of the Frank Spencer tournament in Winston-Salem. The tournament includes Mount Tabor High School, whose star players are C.J. Harris (PG/SG, 6′2″, 2009), a Wake Forest commit, Mike Grace (PG, 6′0″, 2009), who has committed to Yale, and Josh Hicks (SG, 6′2″, 2009).


Mountain Tabor is the defending Spencer champs and are still the team to beat this year.

Here’s a preview write up on the tournament:

“We have finally got some time to practice without preparing for a game,” Muse said.

“We have had three of the hardest practices of the year - the day after the Page game and Monday and Tuesday of this week. We worked on our fundamentals - shooting, passing, dribbling and footwork as well as a great deal of conditioning to be ready to play on a college size court."

Meanwhile, at the City of Palms Classic title was won in a UNC basketball recruit studded affair. With Travis and David Wear (PF,6′9″,2009) going against UNC commit Dexter Strickland (PG/SG, 6′3″, 2009) and St. Patrick.

Mater Dei is ranked No. 1 in the country in some polls. In other City of Palms action, future Tar Heel John Henson scored a triple double with 22 points, 12 rebound and 10 blocks.

I’ve always been very, very impressed with Henson’s game and think he’s got an NBA paycheck in his future, as long as he can build his frame up to withstand the contact. Playing in the ACC will help.
