Coach Pitino has already signed 5-star combo guard Donovan Mitchell and accepted a commitment from 3-star shooter Ryan McMahon. However, the staff is still searching for more shooters. Coach Balado went to North Dakota on Monday to scout Williston State’s Teyvon Myers, the leading scorer in the JUCO ranks at 25 points per game (in just 28 minutes per contest). The 6’2 Myers is a 4-star prospect according to 247Sports. Clemson and West Virginia have also expressed interest in him.
Speaking of Ryan McMahon, the sharp shooter from Sarasota hit the game winning shot in his 3-A playoff sectional game last night.
But McMahon, playing in his first game since verbally committing to Louisville last Friday, helped turn the Cougars’ Sarasota swan song into an instant classic.
“It’s in the seniors DNA to win,” said McMahon, a guard who finished with 22 points, six rebounds and six assists. “We’ve been winning since we were in eighth grade — we are always finding ways to win. That’s just the senior-laden team and we were not about to lose the game.”
