Notes: Virginia Basketball Recruit Casey Morsell Propels St. John’s To WCAC Title Game

No. 5 seed St. John’s College (Washington, D.C.) upset top-seeded DeMatha Catholic, 53-52, to reach the WCAC postseason tournament finals. The Cadets, led by University of Virginia-bound guard Casey Morsell, will meet Gonzaga in the WCAC championship game on Monday, February 25 at 8 p.m.

After losing by 13 earlier in the season, St. John’s had the Stags on the ropes in the second regular season matchup between the two teams. The Cadets led by two as Morsell, who had 29 points in the contest, stepped to the line for a 1-on-1 with 16 seconds remaining. He would miss the front end, though. DeMatha would force overtime before escaping with a 6-point win.

Morsell kept DeMatha from capturing another close win over his team with a game-clinching block of Villanova-signee Justin Moore as time wound down on Sunday.

Morsell, a 6’2” senior, scored 16 points in the win, including eight in the fourth quarter. Full game highlights are below, courtesy of Capitol Hoops. As mentioned, up next is rival Gonzaga, which swept St. John’s (23-9) during the regular season, winning 56-53 at St. John’s in December and 68-63 at home less than one week ago. Gonzaga features UVA class of 2020 recruiting target Terrance Williams. Watch the game live here.

Greensboro Day Wins NCISAA 4A Championship

North Carolina prep powerhouse Greensboro Day captured the 2019 NCISAA 4A state championship in impressive fashion, winning all three playoff games by double-digits, including a 67-53 victory over Christ School in the title game this past Saturday. The Bengals have captured the state championship three straight years, the last two with University of Virginia class of 2021 commitment Carson McCorkle on the team.

Per the Greensboro News & Record, which has a full game story you can read by clicking here, McCorkle poured in 14 points for the Bengals in the championship game. He was one of three double-digit scorers for Greensboro Day, which was led by class of 2021 point guard Cam Hayes with 17. Hayes has received a scholarship offer from Virginia.

Greensboro Day assistant coach Jeremy Spidell tweeted the following about McCorkle following the Bengals’ latest championship victory.

As the no. 2 seed in the state playoffs, Greensboro Day (31-5) enjoyed a double-bye before taking on Charlotte Country Day in the quarterfinals. Head coach Freddy Johnson’s squad defeated CCD, 55-42, before dispatching no. 3 seed Durham Academy, 64-43, in the semifinals.

Recruiting Notes

– Holly Springs (N.C.), which features Virginia class of 2019 forward/center recruit Kadin Shedrick, earned the no. 5 seed in the 4A state playoffs. The Golden Hawks (19-4) therefore receive a first-round bye and will face the winner of Tuesday’s (February 26) matchup between Broughton and Green Hope in second-round action on Thursday, February 28.

– Virginia head coach Tony Bennett has been seeing a lot of prized class of 2020 forward Henry Coleman III lately.

First, the Trinity Episcopal (Richmond, VA) junior was in Charlottesville on February 9 to see the Duke/Virginia game. Then, on February 15, Coleman III was in Charlottesville helping his team defeat St. Anne’s-Belfield (Charlottesville, VA) in a road contest. Bennett and UVA associate head coach Jason Williford were among the spectators on hand.

This past Saturday, following UVA’s road win over Louisville, Bennett was in Richmond to see Coleman III and TES defeat St. Anne’s-Belfield for the 2019 Prep League championship. Coleman III poured in 33 in the victory.

Virginia is one of many Division 1 scholarship offers being considered by Coleman III, who recently added Oklahoma to his offer sheet. Duke is among those showing serious interest.

Trinity Episcopal moves on to the VISAA Division 1 state playoffs. The no. 7 seed Titans host The Potomac School in first-round play on February 26. With a win, Coleman III and company would move on to face no. 2 seed Bishop O’Connell.
