With a loss to King high school (shoutout to Hoop Dreams) last night, the high school career of Anthony Davis ended earlier than it probably should have for, arguably, the nation's best high school player.  Davis' unique story of rising quickly from unknown to prep superstar left in him in the odd situation of playing for a team that was often overmatched.  With his prep career now over, ESPN took a time to recognize the loyalty that Davis displayed in remaining at Calumet (a school full of stones) instead of transferring to a basketball factory or a more high-profile program within Chicago.  According to the story, it's a decision that cost him largely in the awards category, forcing him to miss out on a state title, Mr. Chicago, Player of the Year and Mr. Basketball.  But, for Davis, he never wavered on his decision and has no regrets about remaining faitful to his teammates.  Very cool story. With his high school career now concluded, Davis' final stats for his senior season came in at 32 points, 22 rebounds and 8 blocks per game.  Those stats would have made him a one-man contender in the SEC West. Footage of his final prep game: It's going to be fun next year. Very fun.
