*****Montverde is still #1 and there was NO upset last night.*****
Final from Friday night:
@ Montverde Academy (Montverde, FL)

Montverde, Florida with Ty Graves 71
Louisville Ballard with Anthony Eaves 57

+++++I’m thinking Montverde is now (5-0) and Ballard is (2-1).+++++

Courier-Journal of Louisville, Kentucky is reporting the score at 71-55 Montverde and the Ballard coach said he knew it might get tough on his Ballard Bruins:
Montverde has a towering roster led by 6-foot-9 power forward Ben Simmons, who has committed to Louisiana State and is ranked by some recruiting services as the No. 1 senior in the nation. Other top players are 6-8 Noah Dickerson (Florida commit), 7-1 Doral Moore (Wake Forest commit) and 7-4 Jean Marc Koumadje (Florida State commit).

“My feelings about our game against Montverde are the same feelings I had when I was younger waiting for my dad to come home and spank me,” Ballard coach Chris Renner said. “I knew it was coming, and there was nothing I could say or do to change the outcome. Good thing is that the spanking was usually never as bad as expected.”
