Northland Dominates Bishop Luers

A couple of things were evident after the Northland vs Bishop Luers game; 1) the Bishop Luers' coaching staff must not have watch film of the Oak Hill Academy game (Jared Sullinger had a blistering 1st quarter start); 2) Northland can shoot the ball, (the team shot over 66 % from the field); 3) Bishop Luers is really just a one-man show (Deshaun Thomas scored 36 points, more the half of his team's 67 points. In front of a crowd estimated at 5000 plus, the Vikings jumped out to an early lead that was never in jeopardy "All-Everything" Jared Sullinger appeared to channel the scoring frustration he experienced against Oak Hill last week, against the Knights, as he scored early and finished the game with a team-high 24 points. Unlike Thomas' team, Northland benefited from multiple scorers in junior guard Trey Burke who dropped an impressive 23 points and 7 assists and J.D. Weatherspoon contributed his customary high flying antics with several highlight reel dunks and 8 points. Sullinger and Thomas (Pictured) were the two MVPS in the contest. One more thing is Cristal clear, the Buckeyes should be a very good team this time next year, as the members of the much heralded 2010 recruiting class start playing with and not against each other!


  1. Thanks for the update.

    Sullinger and Northland are proving themselves as the elite team and player in the land. They step up to the occasion and get the W no matter what.

    Weatherspoon seems to be an apt Robin to Sullinger's Batman.

    I'd love to see them match up against a healthy St. Pats. Would be quite the game.

    Does Northland have any national-level games left or do they place only local schools?
