    Well, now that helmets and shoulder pads are locked away for the winter, it's time to move from the frozen tundra of area gridirons to inside to where it's warm, loud, and fast-paced. The basketball season is upon us and this past weekend we got an early glimpse at some of the top teams and players in Northeast Ohio.

    While the area has and will always be considered a football hotbed, the local hardwood has seen some superb players over the years. Looking back, Northeast Ohio has produced such future collegiate and pro stars such as Earl Boykins (Cleveland Central Catholic), Melvin Levett (Euclid), Damon Stringer (Cleveland Heights), Sam Clancy & Steve Logan (St. Edward) and of course, LeBron James (Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary). The list could go on. But enough of the past. Who is going to carry the torch and become the next great player to hail from the area?

    Well, the list is extensive. There is a plethora of talent on the courts this season and several names have been mentioned when talking about the state's best. But this season, being among the best in the state just isn't good enough. We have players that are among the best in the country.

    I would be remiss if I didn't start with Solon's dominating big man, Dallas Lauderdale. The 6'9" center/power forward has been a force since freshman year and has become one of the top recruits in the country. According to several recruiting sites, Lauderdale is among the top 25 players in the country for the class of 2007. That's right, he's is only a junior. Lauderdale has a great frame (235 lbs.) that he utilizes very well. With a superb combination of height, bulk and natural athleticism, it easy to see why Lauderdale has caught the attention of most of the major collegiate basketball programs in the country. He has reportedly already been offered by Ohio State and Syracuse.

    Next, but certainly not least, is Villa Angela-St. Joseph senior star David Lighty. A 6'5" swingman, Lighty has already announced his intention to become a member of the "Thad Five" at Ohio State. Lighty, the #2 ranked prospect in Ohio and 21st ranked prospect in the country for the class of 2006, will join the top-ranked prospect in the country Greg Oden and top-ranked prospect in Ohio, Daequan Cook, in forming the likely #1 recruiting class in the country. Lighty is a player that can do a bit of everything. He is an accomplished scorer, but is fully capable of running the point or even banging with the big boys down low. He is the reigning Plain Dealer Player of the Year and should be considered a favorite to repeat the honor.

    Lighty is averaging 20.7 and (as mentioned earlier) had 28 in a 65-57 win over St. Peter Chanel.

    Merged the four Lighty threads together...the original basketball one, the football one, and two other threads that were just floating around when you did a search for "Lighty"...that should clean things up a bit.

    Midseason Awards

    This weekend marks the midpoint of the high school basketball season. It has been an exciting season thus far, with plenty of teams and players in northeast Ohio making a name for themselves.

    Without further ado, here are my picks for the area's top teams and players as we prepare for the backstrech of the season.



    F David Lighty, VASJ.

    Part of the "Thad Five," OSU's fantastic 2006 recruiting class, Lighty has shown no effects from his ACL surgery during the offseason.

    More on the Cook vs Lighty match-up, by Kyle Lamb.
  15. Got a question for you guys. Do you guys think that there is a chance that Lighty could redshirt.

    I honestly have no idea how his knee is feeling, but I think it could still be a while b4 he gets up to tip top form.

    Next year on schlorship we will have Butler, Twig, Lewis, Mayes, Harris, Bell, Oden, Cook, Lighty, Conley, and Hunter.

    That will be 11 guys with this depth chart:

    PG: Butler, Conley
    SG: Mayes, Cook,
    SF: Lewis, Lighty
    PF:Harris, Bell, Hunter
    C: Oden, Twig

    Much like this year, Bell hasnt seen very much time, and with the look of things next year, barring injury, we should have about 3 differnt guys that could man the 3 b4 Lighty. Those being Lewis, Cook, and Harris/Bell, if you go big and put Twig in at the 4.

    I am not asking this question to downgrade Lighty, I am asking, b/c an ACL tear usually take two full years to recover from and we could hope to get him into his best form and then have four years from then.

    Thoughts???
