Jahlil Okafor made a few questionable decisions in the recent CPS title game, but the Whitney Young Dolphins still have a shot at winning the state title so do not count them out just yet. You can watch a replay of the game below, if you have a cable provider that hits you up with ESPN3. Apologies to tease for those who do not have that kind of set up.

Four overtimes was quite impressive for the Dolphins, and especially considering Okafor fouling out; Paul White stepped up in a big time way though, and a near buzzer beater by Miles Reynolds also helped to advance things for Whitney Young.
These two teams could meet again in the 4A sectional playoffs, so keep your fingers crossed for that and we will keep you posted either way here at Rant Sports Prep. If they do meet it will essentially be the state. because the winner will likely go on to win the whole thing. That is all for today, but will leave you with a bit of fortune cookie wisdom to ease our parting.
