Well, consider me officially stoked and my DVR officially set. Jahlil Okafor and Whitney Young (IL) take on Prime Prep (TX) and point guard Emmanuel Mudiay. It will be one that I watch a couple times to be sure just to get a sense for how they both handle the pressure, and much thanks to Fran Frashcilla for letting us all know who is calling the game. Will look forward to that telecast.

Mudiay and Okafor will not be guarding each other much, but they will be the two most watched players on the floor and one of them will probably be the difference between victory and defeat. They are both going to be pro basketball players one day, and watching their development in the next couple years will be fascinating to observe. They both have elite qualities, but have to say Okafor is still more impressive for his position at this point.
Been quite an interesting start to the year, and will be looking forward to continue doing well for you all in the coming year after all the hullaballoo gets done. Thanks as always for reading and might have a piece on Ben Simmons for you later tonight.
