In-game coaching will be put to the test when FABC-SourceHoops Class 3A No. 2 Sagemont (10-0) faces perennial Alabama state power George Washington Carver in the Kreul Classic Power 96 Elite Challenge on Thursday.
Without the familiarity of facing each other, Sagemont’s Adam Ross and Carver’s James Jackson will rely heavier on making adjustments on the fly to slow down each other's star small forward.
Jackson has his work cut out against Sagemont’s 6-4 swingman Prince Ali, a Connecticut commit while Ross will try to keep Mississippi State 6-6 commit Demetrius Houston in check.
If Ali breaking the game open with his explosiveness isn’t enough to preoccupy Jackson, then 6-10 UCLA signee G.G. Goloman, 6-5 Jordan Cooper and point guard Lance Crawford each having the potential to put up 20-plus points should pose a challenge.
The Kreul culminates Saturday with championship games in the Publix Challenge, The Rock Challenge and Kreul brackets.
On Friday, the South Florida Holiday Showcase tips off with perennial girls’ basketball state contenders South Broward, Norland, Lourdes, Nova and 2012-13 Class 3A state runner-up Miami Country Day stepping into the spotlight at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Center in Hollywood.
Lourdes faces Oxbridge at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday’s marquee game is highlighted by Miami Country Day (9-1) against Dwyer at 4:30.
Nova and three-point ace Bernadette Devaney, faces Oxbridge at 6 p.m. while South Broward, led by Briyana Lloyd faces Miami Norland at 7:30.
