Perhaps I'm only posting this because Penn basketball recruit Jamal Lewis scored 20 points in a win over Georgetown Day School, my roommates alma mater.
Maybe, but this Washington Post article on Lewis' most recent game has some more good press and interesting insight about the recruit, who is in his final year at Sidwell Friends school in Washington, D.C.
For example: we've known that he would be coming in to likely play point guard for the Red and Blue (though Rob Belcore can attest, that doesn't always work out). However, according to the Post, Lewis often plays forward — even center — at Sidwell.
Lewis plans to play point guard at Penn, but his versatility was attractive to college recruiters. Other colleges with more prominent basketball programs tried to recruit him, but Lewis had his mind set on the Ivy League school.
“I knew that whatever [scholarship offers] that would have come after summer, I would have been their second or third choice,” he said. “I was Penn’s first choice from the start.”
In the win over Georgetown Day, he was 8-for-10 with 11 rebounds, three assits and two blocks.
