Jahlil Okafor Will Redeem Himself Against Cliff Alexander in State Playoffs
Jahlil Okafor’s Whitney Young squad lost a four overtime thriller recently, but do not count out this resilient young player. The instant classic was the Curie Condors first CPS title win and now they have their sights set on a first ever state title as well.
If Okafor has anything to say about it though, then the Dolphins will be the ones cutting the nets down. It must be pretty surreal for Cliff Alexander and Okafor to see how the buzz on this has started to build. They were both named finalists for the Naismith player of the year award, and it will come down to either them or Stanley Johnson. Hard to make a prediction on that one until we have a larger data set, but promise that I will eventually make a pick.
Next thing to keep an eye on will be if these two talented Chicago big men will meet in sectionals; if they do, then do not expect Okafor to foul out this time around.
Even if they do not meet in the playoffs, we will still have them matching up at the McDonald’s All American game at the United Center. Okafor has attended the game for the last two years, and the center said it gave him chills when he watched Jabari Parker’s reception by the hometown crowd last season. Something tells me Okafor will be feeling more than just chills on April 2nd, but in the meantime let us hope for a rematch with Alexander in the state playoffs.
