The high school season came to an end last night across the DMV and quite a few Terps commits and targets finished with a bang.
Below is a rundown of some of the weekends top performances from the Maryland state finals, played at Comcast Center, and the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament which took place at Frostburg.
Alhambra Catholic Invitational Top Performers
Romelo Trimble - The crown jewel of Maryland's incoming class, the McDonald's All-American finished his high school career with a bang, averaging 26.7 points per game over three days against some of the toughest competition in the country, including WCAC champions Paul VI. Trimble scored 25 points and added seven assists and six rebounds in an opening win versus Baltimore's Mount St. Joseph's and finished the season with a 35 point outburst, adding eight assists and seven rebounds in a win versus WCAC foe St. John's. Trimble is an elite scorer and solid ball handler with a high basketball IQ and will likely be a key contributor for the Terps next season.
Josh Reaves - Matched up with Indiana commit Robert Johnson in Paul VI's tournament opener versus Richmond's Benedictine, Reaves had an impressive outing, scoring 22 points. Reaves added 11 points in a rout of O'Connell on the second day of play and scored eight points and added seven rebounds in a win over DeMatha to claim the tourney title. Reaves is a do-it-all wing who can score, rebound and create for others. He does all of the little things and is capable of impacting the game without the ball in his hands.
Joe Hampton - The big DeMatha forward took home second team all-tournament honors, helping lead the Stags to the tournament championship. He scored seven points and added six rebounds versus Paul VI in the championship. Hampton added 24 points and nine rebounds in a first round victory over Calvert Hall. Hampton is arguably the most skilled forward in his class. This summer will be important for the big man as he tries to prove to college coaches he can play on the wing at the next level.
Maryland State Playoffs Top Performers
Dion Wiley - After scoring 30 points in Potomac's regional final win last week, Wiley cooled off in the semifinals and finals this weekend, scoring 13 points in each of Potomac's victories as the Wolverines claimed the 2A state crown last night. Wiley is a dead-eye three point shooter who can knock down the long ball off the catch and shoot or off the dribble. This ability plus his ultra-quick release should guarantee he sees the floor for the Terps next season as Maryland really struggled making shots off of set screens this year.
Randall Broddie - The sophomore guard was simply unstoppable during Potomac's championship run. After scoring 27 points in the regional final, Broddie scored 30 points in the state semifinals versus Patterson and led all scorers once again, with 18 points, in the state championship game. Broddie is an athletic, high-energy guard that can light up the scoreboard. The Terps have a very good chance of landing his services should they decide to offer.
Trevor Brown - The Wise big man was instrumental in helping the Pumas win their first-ever state title. Brown was 6 for 6 from the field and led all scorers with 15 points. The Terps are recruiting Brown on the gridiron where he's projected as a defensive end. He was recently on campus for the Terps' junior day.
