    Always good for the experience. Let’s go Mt. Vern

    Would rather see a close loss to a nationally ranked squad with elite D-I prospects than a blow-out win over soft, home island players who likely spend more time surfing at the beach than balling.

    Aloha boys and keep the focus!

    can’t agree anymore. Unless of course those surfer dudes were part of Robert Duvals platoon. “Smells like Victory”

    (NR) White Station (Memphis, Tenn.) 22-6

    Key Players: F Leron Black 6-7 2014 (No. 24 Hoop Scoop Top 100, Illinois commit), PG Chris Chiozza 5-11 2014 (Florida commit), SG Davell Roby 6-4 2014 (St. Louis commit), PG Nych Smith 5-9 2015 (Arkansas, Florida International, Massachusetts offers).
    Why This Ranking: The Spartans have the talent, experience and schedule to compete for the FAB 50 mythical national title. It starts with Black, a Student Sports All-American candidate who is highly motivated to erase the memory of last year’s 65-62 playoff loss to Germantown. Black missed a potential tying 3-pointer at the buzzer, but if White Station plays to its potential it shouldn’t have to come down to that against a local team. The other starters have D1 ability and depth is added by sixth man Derrick Dandridge (6-7) and senior transfer Laderius Coleman (6-5).
    The Skinny: With the talent at his disposal, coach Jesus Patino is worried most about chemistry and selfishness more than opponents. He is going to tweak a few defensive schemes to get the most out of this club and prepare for the bigger national teams White Station will face. If White Station jells quickly and beats No. 13 Prime Prep at the Marshall County Hoopfest, it could be headed for a memorable season.

    LOL spacecadet…Only you could come with surfer dudes riding the pipeline near the Mekong Delta.

    Not to turn Varsity Insider into movie trivia but small correction: Duval as Lt. Colonel Kilgore [think ‘kill’ and ‘gore’] commanded a battalion not a platoon…which reminds me of “Platoon” with Charlie Sheen vs. papa Martin Sheen in “Apocalypse Now”. Two great ‘Nam movies which made me grateful my lottery number never got called. Had a couple of classmates [Ron Saporito and John Griffith] who were far less fortunate and gave all in service to their country.

    Now enough of this and back to basketball!

    Let’s just hope Coach C’s 5 minutes of dialog after the game does not contain the words “The Horror”. Sorry about your buddies. Game time I believe is 830 our time. We are being represented by MV71 who I am sure will be sending me texts as he did last night.

    White Station is beyond tough this year, a one team highlight film. What they o not have is MVs discipline and team play. If MV can beat these guys they can beat anybody.

    this team has a lot of growing to do and it may be a little early in the year to face a team like this. Lets hope they are with-in reach at the end and enjoy the adventure.
