Senior center Sani Ibrahim opened some eyes last night in his game against Our Savior New American. Against a talented frontline, Ibrahim ran off 30 points and grabbed 16 rebounds to lead Oak Hill Academy to a 78-59 victory.
"Sani did a great job on both ends," Oak Hill head coach Steve Smith said. "He worked hard on both ends. He was dominating."
Dominating was the word most associated with Ibrahim before this past summer. But an average summer and a tough start to his senior year at Oak Hill cost Sani a chance to play on the McDonald's All American team. It also opened up speculation on what would be Sani's next step.
"All I can say is he has worked very hard," Smith said. "I don't know what he will do next. But he looked great last night."
Besides Ibrahim, Justin Gray (14 points), Carmelo Anthony (13 points), and Antywane Robinson (12 points, 11 rebounds) made contributions to the win for Oak Hill.
Sophomore Juan Palacios led Our Savior with 17 points.
