January 26, 2013Louisville fans can see the future of the program tonight at Iroquois High School. Hargrave Military Academy's loaded 2013 team, with UofL commits Anton Gill and Terry Rozier, will play in the Louisville HoopFest Saturday night at 8:30 p.m..
Gill and Rozier, two of Louisville's four 2013 basketball signees, will be a key part of the Cardinals' backcourt for years to come. The pair will lead Hargrave against Action Sports in the nightcap of the four-game Louisville HoopFest presented by Body Shapes Medical.
The last game of a four-game set (tickets are $10 at the door), the Hargrave vs. Acton Sports (20-2) game figures to be a fast, high-scoring affair.
Both teams are loaded with Division I prospects and both like to play an up-tempo game. Hargrave is 26-5 and has scored 100 or more points in seven of its last eight games, and Action Sports averages 97 points a game.
There will likely be 10-12 Division 1 players on the court tonight, but Gill and Rozier will be the stars of the show.
Gill is a 6-foot-2, 165-pound lefty scorer who is the No. 13 rated shooting guard in the country and No. 48 overall prospect. He set a Hargrave record with 56 points in a game earlier this season, and has the ability to go off for 30 or more points on any given night.
A 6-0, 170-pound scoring lead guard more comparable to Russ Smith than Peyton Siva, Rozier was a top 100 recruit in the 2012 class before he spent a season at Hargrave. He's blossomed into a four-star prospect.
Check out what Rivals.com's Eric Bossi had to say about Rozier at a recent event: "Currently, it's our policy to not re-rank players who have already been included in a set of final rankings. If that were to change, Louisville-bound Terry Rozier would be making a major move up the list.
"Ranked No. 80 in the final edition of the 2012 Rivals150, the six-footer has improved significantly over the course of the past year. It starts with his added explosiveness and strength and ends with his upgraded playmaking and ability to serve as either a scorer or facilitator."
Bossi continued: "Rozier can shoot with range, is incredibly tough to contain when headed to the basket and he plays with a quiet confidence that keeps him from being shaken in any way on the floor. We'll keep an eye on him for the rest of the season, but based on his performance in New Haven he would be ranked at least in the top 35 or so of the class of 2013 and he may ultimately need consideration for a fifth star."
TICKET NOTE: Admission for the event will be $10 at the door. No presale tickets will be sold and patrons purchasing tickets during the afternoon will be limited to five.
