Galal Cancer Takes Center Stage in New York State Semifinals

The Post Star previews the NYSPHSAA Class AA New York State High School Basketball Championships in Glens Falls, New York this weekend which features Christian Brothers Academy (Albany) facing Jamestown in one semifinal and Mount Vernon squaring off against Half Hollow Hills West (Dix Hills) in the other semifinal. Cornell recruit, Galal Cancer (Christian Brothers) Albany, NY, 6-3, G, is one of three elite point guards in the semifinals with Half Hollow Hills West featuring 5-9 Tavon Sledge (Iowa State commit) and Mount Vernon boasting 6-2 Jabarie Hinds (West Virginia commit). Cancer, a traditional "pass-first" point guard, is averaging 13.1 points per game for his 23-0 team but averaged 27.5 points per game in two sectional playoff wins. Members of the Cornell coaching staff are expected to be in attendance.

I saw that CBA lost, but any kind of recap as to Cancer's performance?

Also, did any of our other recruits teams' do well? Last time I checked, there was a lot of mediocrity.

Recaps of Galal's final game are in the Sunday News and Notes for March 20th.

Devin Cherry's Meridian team won the state title in Mississippi. Cherry won the state's scholar-athlete of the year award.
