Note: These teams are not ranked in the Super 25, but we felt it was the most compelling matchup for today.
The Matchup: Chaminade College Prep (St. Louis, Mo.) will travel to Christian Brothers (St. Louis, Mo.) at 8 p.m. ET.
Chaminade College Prep player(s) to watch: Jayson Tatum, the top ranked junior in the ESPN 60, is virtually unguardable because he can handle the ball, drive to the basket, use his 6-foot-8 frame to dominate in the paint and knock down jump shots efficiently. Good luck stopping that.
Christian Brothers player(s) to watch: Jordan Barnes is a heady point guard who knows when to pick his spots and when to get his teammates involved. Barnes teamed up with Tatum for the St. Louis Eagles AAU team in the summer.
What to expect: The last time these two teams faced off was on Dec. 9, an 81-59 beatdown courtesy of Chaminade. Now that Christian Brothers is playing at home expect a more competitive game, especially since their coach, Justin Tatum, is the father of Chaminade star Jayson Tatum. Dad’s tired of hearing about the loss at the dinner table and wants some payback.
