Thoughts from Tuesday (12-4): Keenan HS

Tuesday's match up between AC Flora and Keenan, played at Keenan High School, was much anticipated by many inside and outside of the Columbia, South Carolina, area.  Zach Norris's Keenan squad, winners of two of the last three class AA state championships, is always exciting to watch.  And I affectionately call the Raiders back court duo of USC Gamecock commit Marcus Stroman and sharp shooter Eric Hopkins the "most dangerous backcourt I've seen."  The combo was to much for AC Flora Tuesday as the Raiders pulled out a 72-65 victory.  Watch the highlights below to see Stroman and Hopkins in action.

Beating Keenan on the road is no easy task.  And AC Flora's 6'4" senior guard Matt Howard, one of the top players in the state and a Penn commit, was the target of Keenan's rowdy student section's chants.  But Howard remained poised and matched Keenan possession for possession for most of the game.  The future Ivy Leaguer scored 35 points immediately after tallying 32 points Flora's prior contest.  Howard is a fantastic player, student, and person.  See Howard work in the highlights below.
