Detroit East English Village 62, Detroit Pershing 53
Detroit East English senior guard David DeJulius, ranked the No. 8 player in Michigan before the season, continued his hot start to the season on Tuesday night.
DeJulius, a Michigan commit and three-star prospect according to 247Sports, recorded a triple-double to lead East English to a 62-53 win over Detroit Pershing.
East English (6-2, 2-1 PSL East Division 1) is ranked ninth in Mick McCabe’s latest Super 10.
The 6-foot point guard finished with 20 points on 6 of 14 shooting, while adding 12 assists and 10 rebounds.
By being productive in multiple ways, he believes it will set him apart and get him on the floor next season as a freshman at Michigan.
One of his assists Tuesday came on a dazzling alley-oop to senior Zavon Godwin.
DeJulius’ triple-double comes a game after he finished with 42 points on 17 of 27 shooting in an 80-71 win over Clarkston, the No. 3 team in McCabe’s Super 10.
DeJulius and the Bulldogs play next at 4 p.m. Friday at Detroit Edison.
New Haven 81, Warren Fitzgerald 58
New Haven, the reigning Class B state champion, remains peerless this season after defeating Warren Fitzgerald on Tuesday night, 81-58.
A large reason why the Rockets, ranked the No. 4 team in Mick McCabe’s latest Super 10 rankings, remain undefeated (7-0, 2-0 MAC Blue) is junior forward Romeo Weems.
Weems, a four-star recruit, according to 247Sports, recorded a triple-double against the Spartans (2-2, 0-2 MAC Blue), finishing with 28 points, 11 rebounds and 10 blocks.
One of his 2-point baskets – he went 5 of 9 from 3-point range – came on a monstrous two-hand slam in the first half.
Weems, ranked the No. 3 player in McCabe’s preseason list of the top 100 players in Michigan, also chipped in four assists and four steals.
The Rockets next play at 7 p.m. Thursday against Warren Cousino.
