Plenty of talent on the floor in the Carinal Ritter vs. Father Tolton matchup last night. Here is a look at some of the players that had big nights.
Mario Fleming | Cardinal Ritter | Class of 2021 | Guard
Fleming is on pace to score his 1500th point very soon for one of the best programs all-time in Missouri. He is a 3 level scorer with a sturdy frame at 6’2. Fleming has a nose for the ball and gets to his spots on the floor where he is incredibly efficient. Against Tolton he did the majority of his work inside and in transition which led to a 21 point night and the win. Fleming has the tools to be a successful player at the college level.
Braxton Stacker | Cardinal Ritter | Class of 2022 | Hybrid Guard
Braxton Stacker is a transfer via Belleville East in Illinois. The long and athletic guard has a 6’5 frame and plays way above the rim. He had 16 points in this contest with 2 of his baskets being momentum-swinging dunks that energized his team. Stacker may be unknown by most currently, but this is soon to change as he told RecruitLook that Missouri, Saint Louis, Virginia Tech, Colorado State, and Tulsa are showing him the most interest. Look for him to be a breakout performer for Bradley Beal Elite in the EYBL this spring.
Jevon Porter | Father Tolton | Class of 2022 | Dual Forward
Jevon is next in line on the boys side for the Porter family. Similar to his brothers Michael and Jontay, he has great length and shooting touch making him a premier prospect at 6’9. Currently committed to play for his Godfather, Lorenzo Romar, at Pepperdine, Porter has the skill set to be one of the best players in the West Coast Conference. He finished with 23 points and 3 blocks on the night. He converted on 3 shots from beyond the arc, a dunk off an offensive rebound, and used his touch near the rim.
Evens Appolon | Father Tolton | Class of 2023 | Center
Appolon is a freak of nature for only being a sophomore. The 6’8 and 240 or so pound center makes his presence felt on the court. He is an aggressive rebounder around the basket and positions himself well awaiting passes near the block. The next step for Appolon is learning how to utilize his physical strength, and continuing to work on his post moves/footwork. He has a great attitude and good body language in game so it is easy to assume Appolon is a coachable prospect. He finished the game with 14 points. Although it is early in his career, it’s safe to assume Appolon will be at the very least a low to mid major college prospect.
