State semi-finals in 4AA Illinois. Stevenson with Jalen Brunson against Whitney Young, with Jahlil Okafor, Paul White and Miles Reynolds--all going D1. Stevenson trailed all game, could not stop Okafor, who was 6 inches taller than anyone on Stevenson. Okafor finished with 33 pts and 15 rebounds. He's the real deal, and he can handle the ball. God he would have looked great in the green and white.
Brunson scored 56 including setting 4AA state records for points, 3 pt-ers made (7-14) and FTs made (16-22). He was nearly unstoppable in a 39 pt second half as he brought the Patriots within a basket twice in the 4th quarter.
C'Mon Izzo. Work you magic on this kid.
