It was a coming of age game for freshman Eric Wallace on Friday night in Greensboro, North Carolina as the 6-foot-6 youngster led his Glenn HS team to a 87-83 win over powerful and talented-laden Dudley team.
The 6-foot-5, 190 pound Wallace scored a career high 28 points in the win and had a half dozen dunks that sent the capacity crowd into hysteria. The class of 2007 prospect also had a couple of threes in the victory. UNC and Wake Forest have both seen the Kearnersville, NC native in action this season and several high majors are showing an early interest. Wallace will play for the D-One Sports traveling team in the open recruiting period.
Dudley, one of the top schools in the state of North Carolina, was led by William Graves, the No. 29 player on the Rivals50. The 6-foot-6 sophomore had 17 points including three huge second half three pointers. But his perimeter scoring wasn’t enough to pull off the victory.
Like Wallace, Graves is a big time ACC and Big East prospect. Graves will play with the Georgia Stars during the AAU season.
Wake Forest commitment Kevin Swinton had a difficult night inside the post as Glenn sent every weapon they had at the No. 14 player on the Rivals75. Swinton finished with eight points and six rebounds. Swinton will suit up for the North Carolina Gators for the spring and summer.
