Waters finished with 13 points and 12 rebounds and I might have missed a couple boards. Dickinson went for 14 and six, but Trae Young, the freshman, added 15 on the strength of 13 in the third quarter. Also, Payton Prince, who’s really upped his game over the last month added nine and six, and I might have shorted him a board or two, too.
The tricky part for the North boys may be reaching the state tournament. They’re still so young. But if they can be the team they’ve been the the last few weeks, they should get there and, once there, count nothing out.
They clearly have the highest ceiling of any team in town. It might be debatable, but I’ll take them as the best one, too, just like I’ll take Nate over Ian, at least back in the day.
If I could only make up my mind between Dickinson and Waters. It’s just too tough.
