Faulds is an odd fit for Engles. The kid's gonna need a calendar to time him baseline to baseline. While he's a skilled post, he'd have been great for Kyle's system, but I question how he'll mesh with Engles' more up-tempo aspirations.

For me, Myles Hanson is the best kid you guys picked up and I'm not sure it's close. Depends on how Faulds can fit.

I think it's way too soon to speculate that Faulds will not fit into Engles' transition offense. If Faulds can rebound and make the outlet pass, he'll be a huge asset to Columbia's running game.

And on those frequent occasions when Columbia's transition game will get bogged down in a half court set, Faulds' low post offense and high post passing will be very useful.

Harsh words from the usually decorous mrjames about young Mr. Faulds and his alleged lack of foot speed. I haven't seen many post players who have been speed burners, but in the videos I have seen of him he doesn't appear to " need a calendar" to measure his baseline to baseline speed.

If Faulds is as talented as he's said to be, a smart coach (and Engles is definitely one of those) will figure out how to use him.

Put another way, I'd bet that Faulds could beat Voss baseline to baseline.

Next year, Smith passing to Faulds should be a pretty potent combination.

JARON FAULDS, HOLT: The senior center finished just shy of a triple-double, scoring 22 points, grabbing 14 rebounds and blocking eight shots for the Rams in a win over Jackson.

This is in yesterday's USA Today High School Sports. Imagine what he could do if he could run!

At least our incoming did well last night. Hanson led his team with 22 in a 81-58 W. I think they're something like 18-5.

Faulds led his team, which is 14-4, with another double-double at 18 pts and 14 rbs in a 46-40 W.

Perhaps the best night, but most bitter, belonged to Stefanini. His Bergen Catholic team lost in the county finals 53-52, but the writeup informed as follows: "The best player on the court was Bergen Catholic senior guard Gabe Stefanini. The Italian scored a game-high 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds." Bergen County is the largest in NJ with just under a million inhabitants, and the finals featured the state's # 9 team against the # 10 team.

The reporter for nj.com did a great interview with Stefanini. His team, BC, has two other D1 players who have been eclipsed by Stefanini. His stock has been on the rise all season. One thing he has which we haven't really had all year is an outstanding three point shooter along with a quick release. I spoke to one administrator who is an impeccable source who told me that the coaches are really high on him, Faulds and Hanson.
