Check out the #1 player in this year’s class, Ben Simmons of Monterverde Academy, getting his ankles broken by Derryck Thornton. Unfortunately for Derryck, he didn’t hit the jumper…or get the W. After the game, Ben joked with Derryck on Twitter about the win and getting his ankles broke.
Simmons final stat line for the game was 24 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists which included one of the sickest passes I’ve seen in a high school game in a while.
Ben and Montverde will go on to compete for their 3rd consecutive National Championship on Saturday.
