Thon Maker scores 18 in second quarter as Athlete Institute wins Ontario prep title

Athlete Institute (Orange, Ontario) made Canadian basketball history by capturing the inaugural Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association prep title by sweeping Orangeville Prep 2-0 in the best-of-three series.

Seven-footer Thon Maker had 27 points, 13 rebounds, seven blocks and three steals in the decisive game and was named OSBA Most Valuable Player.

Perhaps more amazing is that Maker had 18 of those 27 in the second quarter.

Maker remains among the most coveted uncommitted players in the Class of 2016. He is down to Kansas, St. John’s, Arizona State, Indiana, Notre Dame and UNLV.

Maker is scheduled to make an official visit to Kansas this weekend. He also has received a visit from St. John’s assistant Barry “Slice” Rohrssen on Tuesday after he watched the title game online, according to ZagsBlog.
