The Illinois recruit stepped up and led the Rising Stars to victory…

Roy and Harv Schmidt live from the Peach Jam:

Rising Stars (16 and under) 76, South Caroilna Ravens 55:

The Rising Stars were impressive. It was the best game Jereme Richmond has played so far. He had 25 points and stepped up to show leadership as Chris Colvin missed the whole second half with a knee injury. Marcus Jordan had 16 points and eight rebounds. He’s going to start generating some big time interest. Some of the high-majors are just starting to find out how good he could be. Illinois coach Bruce Weber, North Carolina caoch Roy Williams and Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl were all watching the game.

Meanstreets (17 and under) 58, Howard Pulley 50:

Meanstreets rebounded nicely today. Michael Dunigan was the star of the game with 20 points and eight rebounds. He was very aggressive. Farragut guard Isiah Wililams is playing with Meanstreets. He has played pretty well, backing up Dillard at the point. AJ Rompza got hurt and hasn’t played at all. He’s been icing his foot the entire time.

Team Melo 48, Illinois Warriors 47:

It was all Luke Fabrizius. He had 15 points, all on three pointers. Bryan Hall continues to impress us. He is showing that he might be a Division I player. Shepard’s Derrick Pulliem, who we mentioned as a sleeper yesterday, was offered by Northern Illinios today.
