At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

Cooper and Ace Flagg’s Montverde Academy basketball team has held the No. 1 national ranking all year, and it showed why this weekend in Las Vegas.

Playing on national television, and in front of dozens of NBA executives, Montverde (Florida) beat No. 3 Link Academy (Missouri) 71-59 on Friday night, and then No. 9 AZ Compass Prep (Arizona) 58-46 on Saturday afternoon.

The two-game slate was part of the inaugural Nike Elite Youth Basketball League Scholastic Showcase, featuring five hand-picked teams from the EYBL circuit.

With the victories, Montverde has improved to a perfect 9-0, and has now beaten the No. 3, No. 4 (Columbus), No. 6 (IMG Academy), No. 8 (Wasatch Academy), and No. 9 teams in the country by an average of 20.8 points — cementing itself as the nation’s No. 1 team, with the nation’s No. 1 player.

Draft Ace (identical twin) as UDFA and have them swap teams without anyone catching on. Winning....

KD on Cooper Flagg:

“The intangibles that he has, his measurables and his raw talent. I can see that through the TV,” Durant said recently about the five-star prospect.

“I mean he’s 6’10” and can run the floor like that, and [he’s] got the instincts with the basketball like that,”

 “If you work at it, and if you care, and if you’re consistent with who you are – like I said, showing up every day – if you show up every day and be the best that you can be, I think Cooper Flagg could be one of the top players in the league for 15 years.”

I will be watching a good amount of Duke basketball next year…

Maine native and No. 1 recruit Cooper Flagg caps off high school basketball career with national title.

The Maine native, who’s also the consensus No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2024, led Montverde Academy to a 79-63 win over Paul VI in the Chipotle Nationals Championship on Saturday.

Flagg had a solid showing offensively in the title game. He scored 16 points on 6 of 9 shooting as he made mid-range jump shots, pull-up shots, and 3-pointers.

But Flagg’s defense was arguably the biggest factor for Montverde’s win. He grabbed eight rebounds and blocked a whopping six shots on the day. The blocks were a part of the defensive effort from Montverde to slowdown fellow top recruits and Duke commit Darren Harris and Patrick Ngongba.

High school couldn't have finished much better for him.  Player of the Year, and undefeated season and a national championship.

The way UConn is looking right now, I wonder if he'd make a different choice if he was picking his school now, since they were apparently his 2nd choice.

Probably not, Duke is the easy, sexy choice for future NBA studs, but he could also potentially be part of back-to-back-to-back NCAA champions, and Newport, ME to Hartford/Storrs has got to be an easier commute for friends and family than it is to Durham.

(I say this minutes before UConn's Final Four game is about to start when they seem like a lock to win it all).

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Agreed. Can’t wait to see Flagg play at the next level. Feel like mens college basketball hasn’t had a prospect like this since Zion.

Flagg may very well be the best high school prospect since Lebron.  I can't think of anyone else with that much hype who backs it up in high school as well as he does (I could be missing someone).  Now that doesn't mean he wil be that hyped in college or in the draft, but as a high school senior there haven't been many as good as him.

It will be interesting to see what lineup Duke runs out next year, because it’s not going to be anything like this year’s team.

Duke has the #1 class of recruits coming in, headlined by Cooper Flagg of course, but they have lost 10 players this offseason. 2 are going to the NBA, and another has used up his eligibility. Seven players 7! Have entered the transfer portal.

Now most of them were not starting last year, but some were still top recruits themselves. With Flagg and the other top prospects coming in they were probably not starting this coming season either, so they are heading to greener pastures.

Duke has some incoming transfer talent to offset the departures. It’s definitely going to be Cooper’s team if he lives up to his expectations.
