Julius Randle wins MVP, gets revenge

Revenge is sweet
The City of Palms championship went to Prestonwood Christian after it dismantled Grace Prep 62-42. Less than a week ago, Grace Prep defeated the same team on ESPNU. Prestonwood was led by tournament MVP Julius Randle and dynamic freshman Mickey Mitchell. Prestonwood also received a strong effort from Kansas-bound C Zach Peters.

German power forward is nice
The last time the German team from Urspringschule was in Florida, I made a mistake and gave them a cursory watch. It was my mistake in that they weren’t evaluated properly. This time around, that mistake was not repeated. They have at least five Division I players but their team didn’t show well here. Individually though, the pieces were on display.
