Charles Matthews was in action tonight in front of Calipari and the coaching staff and he took full advantage of the opportunity. Matthews finished with 17 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, and four blocks. He got it done on both ends of the floor as he drilled shots, defended, and made plays that nobody else on the court could have made. It was an impressive performance on national TV. Matthews and St. Rita survived a late comeback and took down 12th ranked Simeon 51-26.
If there are 43 players in the nation better than this kid then I’d like to see them.
