TOP GAMES: ROMEO WEEMS
Weems: Rare quadruple-double makes bold exclamation pointA special talent when he came onto the high school scene as a freshman, Weems was tabbed as a Mr. Basketball favorite for 2019 back in 2017 when he led New Haven to a state championship as a sophomore. The 6-foot-7 DePaul signee has played all five positions on the floor and he has lived up to expectations this season.
Despite many standout performances throughout the season, none might top the effort it put forth in New Haven's regular season finale against defending Class C state champion Detroit Edison.
Registering a quadruple in the 74-58 win, Weems scored 34 points, 12 rebounds, 10 steals and 10 blocks. He also added 5 assists. He also surpassed the 2,000-point mark for his career in the victory.
That's a heck of an exclamation point for Weem's last high school regular season game.
Weems: Strong opener sets tone for the seasonWith as strong as he Weems ended the regular season, it should come as no surprise that he opened the season with a strong performance as well.
New Haven opened the season against Division 1 powerhouse Detroit U-D Jesuit and, with Jesuit missing its 6-foot-10 big man Jalen Thomas with an injury, Weems flexed his might as no one else on the Cubs could slow him down.
In a 70-58 win, Weems finished with 27 points with 14 rebounds and 5 blocks.

Weems led New Haven to a Macomb Area Conference White Division regular season title.
