Jahlil Okafor finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds in Whitney Young’s (IL) latest vicotry, and the Duke Blue Devils commit has looked in better condition than ever in the early season.
It was quite a rare game for Okafor, because he was not being double-teamed.
“They thought one man could guard him I guess,” Young coach Tyrone Slaughter said to the Sun Times after the win. “There isn’t one man in the country that could guard him.”
It was apparently a very intense crowd atmosphere, and if you want to check out the full piece then encourage you to do so.

“It was intense,” forward Paul White said. “We stayed focused on the game and not the crowd or anything going on. We’re an experienced team, we learned from our sophomore year here.”
Enjoy White’s game a lot too, and he should be quite a productive player at the college level in his own right and his journey will be a cool thing to keep an eye on. This is probably his last year as Okafor’s teammate. Got a couple more Rant Sports Prep pieces coming your way and then will be calling it a night until tomorrow.
