Drummond, Tarczewski square off in Vegas

7/24/2011

ESPN recruiting has a recap today of Day 1 of the Adidas Super 64 and Las Vegas Fab 48 tournaments, and among the most notable matchups was No. 1 Class of 2012 center Andre Drummond of Connecticut Basketball Club squaring off with highly-touted St. Mark's 7-footer Kaleb Tarczewski of the New England Playaz. The game was decidedly a backyard brawl, if you will, with CBC just edging the Playaz in the final minute.

Here's how the analysts summed up the matchup:

Andre Drummond vs. Kaleb Tarczewski

Two of the premier big men squared off on Day 1 of the adidas Super 64, and it was the nation's No. 1 overall player who served notice on the final play. Drummond stroked the game-winning turnaround jump shot over Tarczewski as CBC won a neighborhood AAU tussle over the New England Playaz. The take from the game is Drummond's mobility is at an elite level. He scored 21 points (9-11 FG) and had four rebounds, all while being saddled with fouls. Tarczewski, from St. Mark's School in Southborough, Mass., had 16 points (5-8) and seven rebounds. A good portion of his hoops came without Drummond in the contest. Guard Kris Dunn (New London, Conn./Wilbraham & Monson) was the game's highlight player. His drives to the bucket could not be contained.
