Chris Fouch
The first state played host to a very strong regional field in the Bay Ball Classic.  Here is a look at some of the top players in Friday's action at Lewes, Delaware.


Rice 72 Roosevelt 37
Caravel Academy 62 Christ the King 61
Kempsville 55 Towson Catholic 50
National Christian Academy 75 St. Markís 66
Bullis 65 Tatnall 37


Chris Fouch (2008, 6-1 SG) Committed to Drexel
This deadly sharpshooter sparked Rice early on. He scored 12 points in the first four minutes, including 3 shots from beyond the arc. One of those was from NBA range. Chris scored on an old fashioned three point play as well. Not surprising, he finished four of five from downtown in less than two quarters of action. Chris also flashed some solid passing ability with a pair of assists to cutting teammates. His passing and driving ability might get overlooked because of his exceptional shooting skills. Chris finished with a solid 15 points in limited minutes during the blowout win.

Dorvell Carter (2008, 6-5 SF)
Dorvell was impressive with a pair of blocks. On the offensive end, he had a drive where he drew contact and also scored on a transition layup. Dorvell also had an offensive rebound which ended up with a three point play as well.

Christ the King

Ryan Pearson (2008, 6-7 SF/PF) Committed to George Mason
The workhorse for the Royals was stellar once again. He is so crafty at scoring around the basket. Heís able to adjust very well around defenders. He hit several of his usual bank shots from in close. Birdman was able to attack off the dribble as well. He had a couple of nice passes in this game too. He was quiet from the perimeter and did have trouble scoring inside against the big Caravel front line from time to time. Ryan was strong on the glass throughout. Game in and game out heís Christ the Kingís most productive player. He scored 27 points and mixed in 11 rebounds in defeat. 

Sean Johnson (2009, 6-1 SG)
Sean is a very active and aggressive guard. The slasher can really get to the hoop off the dribble. Heís smooth with the ball in his hands and also loves to run the floor. Sean finished well around the hoop and hit a tough pull up jumper among his many baskets. He also rebounded the ball well. He has pretty good form on his shot, but didnít have a strong game behind the arc. He also struggled with five turnovers in the contest. With talented teammate Erving Walker struggling, Sean came up big and along with Pearson kept Christ the King in the ball game. He finished with 21 points and 6 rebounds.

National Christian Academy

David Diakite (2008, 6-6 SF)
David is a long and athletic wing player. Heís very explosive and loves to attack the rim off the dribble. At times he was able to finish, but often he had trouble doing so when help defense showed up. He plays too fast and needs to develop a pull up game or the ability to change directions in order to be more effective. David just seems to want to get to the rim as quickly as possible. He needs to be more patient off the dribble. Itís hard not to love his aggressive nature though. The talented forward hit a couple of three pointers in this contest too. His aggression got him to the line quite often as he put up 17 points in the win.

Wilbur O' Neal (2008, 6-7 220 PF)
This big bodied post was relatively quiet early on. He opened the second half with a reverse layup. He had another layup and later on an assist after a steal. Wilbur pulled down a couple rebounds too. He was efficient shooting the ball, but doesnít get a lot of touches on the offensive end.

Will Barton (2010, 6-5 SG/SF)
Will is a lanky guard with a very smooth jumper. He had a nice pull up jumper. He also can handle the ball and get to the rim off the dribble. Heíll often look to use spin moves to get by the defense. He had a dunk in transition during this game. Will did struggle from behind the arc and missed a pair of free throws down the stretch. He rebounds well too for a guard. On a team loaded with talent, Will lead the way with 22 points.

Caravel Academy

Dominic Morris (2009, 6-6 PF)
Dominic was instrumental in the victory for Caravel. He scored the game winning basket on an offensive rebound put back. The powerful forward had a strong impact throughout the game. He possesses good hands and touch around the basket. He scored around the basket on a number of plays and was particularly strong on the offensive glass. Dominic struggled some early finishing near the hoop, but really picked it up as the game when on. He handles the ball pretty well and often will attack from the perimeter. He had a monster game on the boards. Dominic finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds (8 offensive). 

Erique Gumbs (2009, 6-8 PF/C)
Erique is another big bodied talent for the Caravel frontline. He actually didnít have a great game as he struggled converting on a number of plays. Despite that, his skills were quite obvious. He possesses good hands and quick feet and can get around defenders rather easily with his back to the basket. He had a number of impressive plays including a nice spin move in the post. Erique hit a 10 foot turnaround jumper and also looked good despite missing with a jump hook. Like his teammate, Erique can attack off the dribble as well. He displayed soft touch on his shots. With his fantastic size, heís a real force on the boards too. He showed a smooth stroke from the foul line. This young talented post prospect showed some great ability and if he can finish better than on this occasion he should really start to draw some attention. Erique scored 15 points and pulled down 13 boards in the upset victory.

St. Mark's

Peter Kaasila (2009, 6-8 PF/C)
Peter is a good size post player. Heís not very athletic, but has fairly good touch around the rim. He was efficient on the inside. His team is loaded with high major big men and on many teams heíd be a more focal point of the offense. He was efficient shooting the ball and he pulled down several rebounds too.

Dave Johnson (2009, 5-9 PG)
Dave is a quick ball handling guard. Heís very small and thin. He was at his best driving and dishing on this day. Dave did struggle with a number of turnovers though. He also missed shot after shot from the perimeter.

Towson Catholic

Brandon Greene (2008, 6-6 PF)
Brandon is a strong undersized post player. He has great hands and can really finish around the hoop. On one play, he scored after contact. He possesses quick moves down low. Brandon also rebounds very well. He scored 9 points and pulled down 11 rebounds.

Larry Bastfield (2008, 6-0 PG) Committed to Toledo
Larry is a quick guard who loves the crossover move. He had several nice plays where he used his ball handling to get into the lane before setting up teammates with nice passes. Larry struggled throughout with his pull up jumper though, particularly from three. He needs to show a more consistent jumper than he did today. It certainly wasnít one of his better outings.

Leshon Edwards (2009, 6-4 SG)
Leshon is a quick ball handler. He was able to use that speed to convert a pair of old fashioned three point plays. He has good size for a guard. Leshon finished fairly well around the basket. He would benefit by showing more passing ability than he did today. He also was quiet from the perimeter.

Coaches spotted in the gym:  Navy, Towson, Pittsburgh and Central Connecticut St.
