Video: Draymond Green vs. Dee Chapman
FLINT, Mich. - Future Spartan Draymond Green scored 28 points and pulled down 11 boards with three steals and three assists as No. 1 ranked Saginaw High dispatched Flint Carman-Ainsworth 79-67 at Flint Northern on Monday night.
Green is averaging 20.8 points, 13.1 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals per game as a senior for Saginaw coach Lou Dawkins. The future Spartan was still recovering from a summer ankle injury when his senior season began and he struggled at times during the rehabilitation period. But against an athletic Carman-Ainsworth team played a lot of minutes and did not struggle with the pace.
SpartanMag.com was in the stands to watch Green and his teammates take on a scrappy Carman-Ainsworth basketball team led by 2010 standout Dee Chapman who scored 20 points against the defending Class A champs in the state of Michigan.
A 6-foot-5 leaper, Chapman scored all of his points in the paint either slashing to the basket or put-backs. Chapman is a quick leaper and he is a tough match-up for anyone at the high school level. But to get high-major looks, the sophomore from Flint is going to need to work on his perimeter game as well as his ability to put the ball on the floor.
Chapman scored 20, 17 and 15 points for the Cavaliers in Carman-Ainsworth's three post-season contests.
Tennessee recruit Daniel West has no trouble on the perimeter and he can shoot from distance as well as anyone in the Great Lakes State when he is on. Against Carman-Ainsworth, West scored 27 points.
West averages 18 points, 9 assists and 7 steals for Saginaw.
