    That's not a bad starting weight for a guy who still has a full year of prep before he shows up on a college campus. He will be 225 in 18 months, after being in a collegiate S&C program and maturing physically.

    How about "Prez"? As in Bourama sounds like a cross between Barack and Obama. (Not meant to get push this thread in any way/shape/form down a political path...just sayin')

    Home - Shirts vs. Skins
    For those that live in the B-More area and DMV can check out that event if interested. Sidibe and St. Benedict's are playing tonight and tomorrow. Putnam Science has both Hami Diallo and Eric Ayala playing on both night as well. The best matchup takes place tomorrow night with St. Benedict's vs Mt. St. Joseph(2018 top 25 Jalen Smith and Maryland commit Darryl Morsell).

    St. Benedict's won last night with Sidibe pulling in a double double with 10 points and 11 boards. He scored 16 points tonight but unfortunately St. Bennie's took the L.

    Thanks, Francis. I haven't seen anything about Mandani Diarra in the first games. Still a mystery.

    I think I did, but ended up losing it to blackout numerous times. I am not sure I can adequately express the frustration I felt. It might be like being a young kid and seeing more of a bounty than usual under the Christmas tree, only to wake up Christmas morning to find the room with the tree and presents had been completely incinerated. That's kind of how it seems to work. Remembering athletics, I will employ dedication to overcome it. I'm not sure anyone who obtains it is allowed to speak of it. I mean even Kermit hadn't, because he sings about maybe someday finding it. The poor sap can empathize.

    Actually I did kind of find a different sort of rainbow connection, but you'd have to look at each word separately to understand what I'm talking about. I think both parts are unmentionable on here, but for completely different reasons.

    Sidibe had 23 points, 8 boards, and 6 blocks in his last game.

    Maybe he turns out to be a sleeper and is great. We sure could use one of those.

    I know highlights films are just that - a few select nice plays and none of the bad ones - but man does he look like he can do a lot of things
