BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA -- Carmelo Anthony, 6-7, 190 pound swingman, put on a dazzling offensive show last night at the NIKE sponsored AAU tournament.
Anthony erupted for 37 points, most in the second half at the Baltimore Blue pulled away for a 95-78 sweet 16 victory over Team Texas at the NIKE Memorial Day Classic.
Anthony, who had taken his shares of dings and dongs throughout the contest, decided to pull his game away from the basket. He responded by hitting a barrage of jumpers -- midrange and a few long range bombs midway through the second half.
Anthony's three-pointer with seven minutes to play in the second half gave Baltimore a 66-57 lead. They never looked back after Anthony's long range bomb.
Anthony is expected to make his commitment official with Syracuse on May 29th. We will have more on this site later.
Bracey Wright had 24 points in defeat.
