Wheeler beats Top-10 Rival...Wood Crosses 1,000 Point Mark...Harrow and Wall in the News

Richard Howell seems like the type of player that can take care of business when he needs to. Through following his play all year, I have noticed that he doesn't seem to be a selfish player. Rather, he seems like a player who lets the game come to him and can take the game over for his team when they need him to. That is exactly what Howell did last night when he led Wheeler (12-6, 6-1) to a tremendous victory over Milton (#8 in Georgia) by a score of 76-63. Howell scored 25 points in the game, setting the tone early on by pouring in 20 points in the first half.

Last night's win over Anderson was more than just your ordinary Friday night High School basketball game for Scott Wood. In route to leading Marion to their 9th straight win by a score of 81-65, Wood also became the 13th player in Marion history to score over 1,000 points. He added 33 more points to his career numbers last night in the win.

Check out the Chronicle-Tribune's write-up on Wood's great accomplishment.

We love to share the wealth when it comes to articles that we find on the web. We are about to present to you one of our favorite finds. In this morning's Marietta Daily Journal there is a feature story on Ryan Harrow. The article is a biographical sketch of Ryan's life, painting a picture of how he learned to love the sport of basketball, how he ended up at Walton, and why he chose to commit to the Wolfpack.


"Harrow, who made his verbal commitment to North Carolina State at the end of his sophomore year, has been playing basketball in some form [since] he was 2 years old. He says his father taught him to play, but he also picked [up] a few things watching television."

"I watched TV and just tried to do whatever I saw on the screen," Harrow said. "I was always just working on my game and trying to get better. It makes me feel good to see that all my hard work is paying off finally. I still have another year to maybe do even better than I did this year."

"I think it (NC State) is the best place for me, and it looks like it is going to work out," he said. "We are going to have some other pretty good people going there."

Also, we would like to share an article the Lawrence Journal-World & News put out on what it is like to live in John Wall's World. The article is insightful and very well-written. Give it a read...

By the way, in the article John says that everyone is just going to have to wait until April. No problem John, we'll wait as long as you like.
