Monday's games: 5-star Giles dunking on Pistol Pete's court
Giles unique triple-double: 31 points, 17 rebounds, 10 dunks. Giles faces Orangeville Prep's 7-1 Thon Maker and 6-10 Matur Maker in the lane in Tuesday's 8:30 p.m. final.
Saturday's games: Five-star recruit Brandon Ingram
Don't judge Ingram on this one game. Millbrook had great defensive game plan and Ingram's teammates failed to share ball. He posted a double-double of 27/12 in Friday victory.
Friday's games: Point guards steal show Friday
Campbell-bound Chris Clemons of Millbrook and Boston College-bound Jerome Robinson of Broughton were impressive. They meet in Tuesday's 6:50 p.m. final at Broughton.
