<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">Two highly ranked teams in the state of Arizona with some serious prospects, <strong>Eduprize Gilbert High School</strong> and <strong>Tri-City Christian Academy,</strong> faced off at the state of the art <strong>PHH Facility</strong> in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday evening.  Both teams, coming into the game, were undefeated in conference, and were playing for the #1 spot within the conference. </span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">Coming into the game, Eduprize was 5-0 and Tri-City was 4-0 in conference play. Two big-time 2020 prospects faced off in this matchup - 6-foot-9 junior <strong>Shon Robinson</strong> for Eduprize and 6-foot-10 junior <strong>Fallou Diagne</strong> for Tri-City.</span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">The game started out very competitive, as both teams competed hard and traded baskets from end to end.  However, Eduprize's full-court pressure and intensity helped them pull away slightly, as the first half came to a close.  Eduprize went into the half with a 48-32 lead over Tri City. </span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">At half for Eduprize, 6-foot junior guard <strong>Unisa Turay</strong> had 12 pts, 6-foot-3 junior <strong>Isaiah Floyd</strong> had 16 points and Shon Robinson had 9 points.  For Tri-City, Fallou Diagne had 12 points and 6-foot-7 senior <strong>Mamane Yaou</strong> had 9 points. </span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">In the second half, Tri-City handled the pressure of Eduprize's defense and battled back to cut down the lead.  The lead was cut to 59-50 at the end of the 3<sup><span style="font-size: small;">rd</span></sup> quarter, but that’s as close as it would get.  Eduprize was able to maintain a double-digit lead for most of the 4<sup><span style="font-size: small;">th</span></sup> quarter, even though Tri-City was battling back with tough plays from Fallou Diagne, Mamane Yaou, 6-foot-3 junior <strong>Justin Solis</strong> and 6-foot-7 senior <strong>Jeikel Davis</strong>.  </span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">Eduprize was able to maintain that lead with big plays from 6-foot-1 junior guard <strong>J. Flowers</strong>, who was a factor both defensively - forcing turnovers and also knocking down some key jumpers late.  6-foot-1 senior<strong> Jalani Williams</strong> also stepped up down the stretch, as he had a couple tough finishes, knocked down a pull-up jumper in transition and hit a three to help keep the lead extended for Eduprize.  Floyd and Robinson also made some big plays finishing at the rim down the stretch in order to eventually help lead their team to a 76-64 win. </span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">Fallou Diagne for Tri-City finished with a game-high 20 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks, while even mending a rolled ankle that happened early in the second half.  Fallou had an impressive game - showing he can get it done on both ends of the floor, as he played with a high motor.  Fallou also has a very good skill-set on the offensive end, as he can score from all three levels and has the ability to attack the rim at a high level.  His size, length and athleticism also makes him a very tough matchup. </span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">Shon Robinson for Eduprize finished with a team-high 16 points, 8 rebounds, 5 steals and 4 blocks.  Robinson also proved he is a factor on both ends of the floor, as his activity and motor were very impressive.  Robinson offensively can also do a little bit of everything, as he can score from all three levels.  He’s very effective attacking the rim off the bounce and is very good in the open floor In transition.  Robinson has a very unique size, athleticism and skill-set combo, which makes him hard to match-up with.  Look for both teams to continue their strong seasons, as the season gets closer to the playoffs.</span>
