Tip-Off Classic features nationally ranked O’Dowd, Gorman
Talk about hitting the ground running.
The Bishop O’Dowd-Oakland boys basketball team ended last season with a loss in the state Open Division final to the nation’s No. 1 team (Mater Dei-Santa Ana) and No. 1 player (Stanley Johnson).
The Dragons are starting right where they left off, opening the 2014-15 season against nationally-ranked Bishop Gorman-Las Vegas, which features two of the country’s top 10 seniors, according to ESPN, in 7-footer Stephen Zimmerman and 6-9 Chase Jeter, a recent Duke signee.
The matchup of national heavyweights headlines the Prep2Prep Tip-Off Classic at Newark Memorial on Saturday.
The last of seven games is scheduled to tip-off at 8:30 p.m.
“Dare to say, he has to be the best non-starter in the nation,” said event organizer Gerry Freitas, a former college assistant and current West Coast scout.
Among the participating players who have already committed to colleges are:
Drake’s Jesse Hunt (Eastern Washington), Modesto Christian’s Anthony Townes (Pacific) and Jeff Wu (Sacramento State), and Folsom’s Colin Russell (Portland) and Moreau Catholic junior Oscar Frayer (Cal).
Johnson caught 11 passes for 146 yards with a pair of first-half touchdowns, and the Lions boosted their postseason hopes with a 34-17 victory over the Chicago Bears on Thursday.
Johnson had been held under 60 yards in two of three games since returning from an ankle injury, and there were rumblings that the 29-year-old receiver was slowing down, but he quieted a lot of those concerns Thursday.
After losing at Arizona and New England and falling out of first place in the NFC North, the Lions (8-4) spotted Chicago a 14-3 first-quarter lead before rallying with relative ease in the second.
Detroit finished with a season-high 474 yards in its highest-scoring game since a 35-14 victory over the New York Giants in its opener.
The Bears opened the scoring on Cutler’s 10-yard scoring pass to Alshon Jeffery, and they scored again after Jared Allen sacked Stafford, forced a fumble and recovered it at the Detroit 5.
Bell put the Lions ahead with a 1-yard scoring run on fourth down — leaping toward the goal line and extending the ball just far enough for a touchdown.
