Later this week, a 6-foot-8, 230-pound center from Pope John XXIII High School will become the next potential great Garden-stater to announce his college decision. Moustapha Diagne, of Sparta, N.J., will choose between Syracuse and Memphis.
After playing this weekend with the Playaz Basketball Club at the Nike EYBL stop in Sacramento, recruiting is heating up for 2015 center Moustapha Diagne, a 6-foot-8, 230-pound prospect from Pope John XXIII in Sparta, N.J.
With the basketball season coming down to a win-or-go-home scenario, Isaiah Briscoe propelled Roselle Catholic over Trenton Catholic in the semifinals of the New Jersey Non-Public South B bracket of the state tournament, 70-50.
Malachi Richardson, the Syracuse University-bound guard, went for 27 points, including 15 during a wildly entertaining first quarter, as Trenton Catholic Academy got out to an early lead and blew the game wide open in the second half in defeating Ewing.
Moustapha Diagne holds offers from Syracuse, Villanova, Kansas, Memphis, Penn State, Rutgers. St. John’s, Cincinnati, UConn, Seton Hall, West Virginia, Temple, Cleveland State, Oregon State, Iona, Manhattan, La Salle and Rhode Island
