Figure it would be good to have one thread for this.

Max Martz had 27 points as host Upper Arlington (2-1) downed Springfield (2-2). Martz made 10 of 11 free throws.

Martz had a strong showing at the Ohio Nike Shootout earlier in the month. Details are behind a paywall unfortunately.

Jordan Dingle scored 28 vs. Perkioman, including three 3-pointers.

Lucas Monroe named 2nd team all-Southeastern PA in the Inquirer's preseason report.

Max had 26 points in their loss and I think 12 or so in a blowout win in which my guess is he did not play a whole lot. So a good start for him.

Martz' Nike showing was impressive enough for him to start receiving Ohio Mr. Basketball consideration.

Will Martz be playing the 2 at penn? If so, picture the backcourt of Mashburn Jr and Martz lighting it up.

I'm going to try and watch Lucas Monroe in the next few weeks. The last time I did that it was watching Jamal Lewis and I came away blown away by Josh Hart instead. Hoping it's not a repeat with Dixon doing it all.

Martz is like a small-ball '4'. Picture something of a Matt MacDonald except he can actually shoot. He might play some '3' later on in his Ivy career. But he's definitely not a '2', especially with all the other actual guards on the roster (Betley, Washington, Dingle, Monroe, Charles).

Thanks for the insight, Josh. Glad you're still posting here.

I certainly like the idea of Martz playing the 4. It helps that the true guards are tall.

Martz continued his hot hand on Friday, scoring 18 in a 45-43 win.

Charles scored 15 (3 3's) in a blowout win.

On Saturday Monroe scored 15 as well for Abington in a win.

Any details on the game? Where, when, and against whom? There's also Villanova recruit Dixon on that team.

They're playing my high school and soon to be new school district again, Upper Dublin. It's at UD. The UD girls came back from down 17 with 7 to go (I love the symmetry of those numbers, don't you Palestra?) to beat the Abington girls last night, but I have to think Abington is favored big time.

If you want to see Abington basketball this year and get a somewhat-honest evaluation of their talent, don't go see them against Upper Dublin, lol. Starters might be sitting the whole fourth quarter for that one. Go see them play P-W at Abington on Jan. 4. Or Cheltenham on Jan. 15. Or Sankofa on Jan. 26 (at West Chester). Assuming their MaxPreps schedule is correct.

Upper Dublin was definitely outmatched but if they didn’t shoot free throws like Penn they would have had the lead with 3 mins left in the first half. Instead, Lucas and Dixon put on an end of half show to lead Abington on a 14-0 run the last 2:15.

I’ll start with Nova-bound Dixon. He is just massive and if he gets himself into college shape by sophomore year he will make an impact. These hs kids had no chance when he puts his head down and he has a very sweet lefty stroke which he used to sink multiple 3s.

Onto Lucas. The first word that comes to my mind is athletic. I only wish you guys could see what he attempted to do to a poor UD kid. Out of nowhere he just takes off in the lane, flies over him, and almost pulls off the posterization. The dunk came up short but he went to the line. He also just missed two other alley oop attempts but he certainly plays above the rim.

His handle is solid and he found himself bringing up the ball a good deal even though they have smaller ball handlers. Abington likes to go so that’s probably why he had it so much, and he and Dixon don’t sub out. I didn’t see him break anyone down one on one but he’s quick and certainly can finish on the break. He favors the left but he did finish one nicely with his right hand high off glass.

I believe he was about 9-10 from the free throw line so that was comforting. He has a very confident lefty stroke. However I did not see him attempt any real jumpers. There might have been one but I dont remember it. He was also a load to handle on the o-boards and at one point took control of the team and told his guys to slow down. He had at least one block but not much else could be learned defensively vs that team.

Overall I came away impressed with his athleticism and think he can contribute if he has a jump shot. I told him after the game to remind Eric about what happened last week.

Top Performers, Standouts at Hoop Group NJ Tip-Off

http://basketballsocietyo nline.com/hoop-group-show...

Jordan Dingle (UPenn) / ’19 Blair Academy

Really showed his ability to take over the game and pace the offense with both scoring and playmaking.

Jonah Charles (UPenn) / ’19 Rutgers Prep

The senior made potent and poised plays at every level for Prep and showed off true Ivy League talent.

Looks like Dingle and Charles are off to a great start (and Dingle’s team is quite good).

Also saw that MLL had a good game in a close loss with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Good game after a slower start for him it seems.

Personally love that we have a Philly area kid and 2 NJ kids in this class.

That’s been Steve’s blueprint. Recruit the greater philly area first and get kids who value the Big 5 and the Palestra. He feels like he can build great teams with high quality kids who are local and get what it means to be a Quaker

Donahue also seems to have a good local reputation with HS and AAU coaches, which will further reinforce local recruiting. There's plenty of talent.

#10- What I admire most about your Coach Donahue is his humility; he's worked hard, consistently; clearly amassed a ton of knowledge in 35 years of coaching; but doesn't need to be acknowledged as the smartest guy in the room wherever he goes.
I only wish you'd take that blueprint you write about and forward it to Jim Engles at Columbia, along with some of your personalized instructions and points of emphasis, starred. Any school MUST do the best job possible in the recruitment of student athletes within the geographic region of the school's location. If your school's in New York City and you can't/won't/or refuse to recruit New York City kids, whatever the reasons; then just get the hell out of there and give some interested party a chance to do the job right!
