News and notes from the weekend...

Young coach Tyrone Slaughter has confirmed that Marcus Jordan sprained his ankle over the weekend at Chicago State. Simeon knocked off Young to win the tournament. Young sophomore Anthony Johnson continues to receive rave reviews and is being acknowledged as the No. 2 sophomore in the class (behind North Shore's Jereme Richmond).

According to, Washington's DeAndre Liggins has trimmed his list to four. Texas is out because it is too far from home. Liggins is down to Kansas, Memphis, Illinois and Kentucky. He was in Kansas on a visit over the weekend.

Sources close to the 6-6 guard tell the Sun-Times that Memphis is the leader for Liggins.

Better get some new sources....

DeAndre Liggins, the top high school basketball player from the class of 2008 in the Chicago area, has given a verbal commitment to attend the University of Kentucky.

O'Brien responds: I'm glad you're enjoying this. But technically, I'm pretty confident Memphis was the leader for Liggins at that time. A lot of things change when players go on visits.

yeah....A kid could change his mind a million times in five minutes. O'brien don't listen ti this punk.
