1. McAdoo = winner

When Angel Rodriguez's (Miami, Fla./Dr. Krop) last-second heave didn't go down, James McAdoo (Norfolk, Va./Norfolk Christian) let out a big yell and immediately hugged his coach. Look, you know you're in the company of a competitor when before a half-full gym at 5 p.m. ET on a Friday on opening day, the best player on the floor is fully engaged. Like one assistant shared with us, when you see a player approach a game wtih the mindset McAdoo did it sets the tone. This was not just another game to him, it had value.
