Sylvester Mayes (official thread)

    I think it will be nice for some folks around Columbus to get a preview of what Mayes can do, but Worthington is just a terrible gauge for what is going to happen the next winter. I've seen it time and time again where someone explodes in the Summer only to be a dud for the hoops season. Ricardo Billings is only the latest example.

    That being said, I think Mayes is the real deal, and regardless of what he shows in Worthington (I am expecting to hear raves), he should be able to step right in next year and be a leader on the team along with Terrence Dials. The recruiting haul of 2006 is understandably getting us hyped about the program, but Mayes, Dials, and Lewis coupled with the nice assortment of role players we have should legitimately compete for honors in the Big Ten this coming season.

    A lot of top programs were recruiting Mayes, he was a steal for Matta. Do not be suprised if he is our best shooting guard next year.

    I saw this kid play on tuesday
    He was amazing I left a more detailed description of him over on the buckeye basket ball board in the worthington league thread.
    I could re post it in this thread if anyone is interested.

    goodguy I loathe goodguy

    I noticed the same thing. To me, Mayes has looked a little lost out on the court when he's played.

    Mayes missed 2 out of the 3 with an injury. He could have played today, but didnt. I was suprised, especially with them being short handed without Sylvester.

    BTW, did anyone else notice Matta didnt make ANY subs in the 2nd half?

    Grades may be an issue, I think someone said.

    Purely a rumor at this point, keep that in mind.
