Yesterday’s NHSI semifinal action at Georgetown Prep didn’t go quite as I expected, but one thing it did prove was who is at the head of the class when it comes to boys high school basketball teams this season. I’ll be brief.
Oak Hill vs. St. Benedict’s:

The anticipation continues to build as Lance will delay his decision a little longer. The New York prep star originally planned on announcing his college committment this morning before the McDonald’s All-American game.
Lance Stephenson has picked the college he would like to attend next season, but the rest of the world will have to wait until April 1st at the McDonald’s All American game to find out where he has chosen to suit up for in the fall.
