B137, many of us are not Twitter users like you. Where is Hicks (point guard for Malvern) going to college? Or is he still a junior?

I have seen him play multiple times-- he is fast and has improved his overall game. I think he could play in the Patriot League.

Just wondering....appreciate your research on this. His Dad, Ricky Hicks, is one of the all-time leading scorers for West Chester U (Division II).

Does anyone else think we could use a small, shifty PG who can set up our 3 point bombers?? IF not Hicks, then who are the targets for this need.




Hicks is a junior. Agree that he might be able to play PG at the PL level. No idea if his grades/SAT's fit under the AI.

As for Bucknell's PG plans, it is hard to tell. I would not be excited to see Xander Rice as the starting PG. Deuce Turner has said he is preparing to play the point, at least on occasion, so that may be a possibility - although I'd have to see a lot more of him playing there to form an opinion. Right now, there is only one known outstanding scholarship offer for the available scholarship for the Class of 2020. And that one is to a PF and may well be off the table. I imagine we will eventually see more offers for that open spot, although I would be fine with holding it back to use on a transfer (assuming the BU administration cooperates). That strategy has been very successful for Matt Langel at Colgate.

Also there is one known PG offer for the Class of 2021, Denham Wojcik who plays for an Indiana prep school. I would be surprised if he ends up at Bucknell however. Assuming the final scholarship this year is not used for a PG, then I think that would automatically become the #1 need for the 2021 recruits. And I agree that it would be good to get a small, quick PG.

We should be able to watch Deuce’s tournament game via Facebook this evening. I think the tip time depends on the game before it?

They list the other semi-final as starting at 6 PM and then Malvern Prep's game starting at 8 PM. That should be about right if there is no OT in the first game.

MP faces Phelps tonight. Should they win, they likely would meet #1 seed Westtown. Westtown has only lost one game to a PA team this year - and that was to Philly power Neumann-Goretti, which may be PA's top team.

Turner ended up with 30 points as Malvern Prep pulled away from Phelps in the fourth quarter. They will have a tough time with #1 seed Westtown, whose roster is loaded with high-level D1 recruits, including a couple of 6-10 big men.

Turner scored 22 points but Malvern dropped a 72-59 decision to Westtown School in the. PA independent school championship game. Westtown was the clear favorite with a taller front court than most college teams and 6-5 junior guard Jason Warley who is a rising star. The Moose also have TJ Berger who is headed to Penn as a senior guard.

Turner had 8 field goals with one 3 pointer and was 5 for 5 from the line.

Also does anyone have more details on how Andre Screen is doing this year? Been a little quiet on his stat lines.

Like many private schools, there is very little press coverage of Screen’s team. And they don’t post their stats on maxpreps or on their own schools website, So therde is very little information out there. Just judging from the tweets by the school site and a few fame videos, however, I don’t think he is having a big scoring season. In the games Where there has been any info, I would guess he’s averaging no more than 12 to 14 points per game. No idea about the rebounds, but he is surrounded by a lot of good players and doesn’t seem to have a real high motor where he wants to get every ball.

Deuce's season is not over. Malvern Prep will play in the eight-team Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament, which will also include his future teammate Andre Screen and St Stephen's and St Agnes School.

Tournament is at Frostburg State University (MD) March 12-14.

No Final Four, but the next best thing is a new 7-minute video of Deuce Turner highlights.

I especially dig the coast-to-coast dribbling exhibition at 5:25 and the no-look, behind-the-back pass at 6:25.

That’s quite an honor. I am looking forward to watching him play as a Bison.
