Ex-Georgetown guard Stephen Domingo is headed back to the west coast where he will play out the remainder of his college basketball career for Cuonzo Martin at Cal, according to multiple media reports.
Domingo was a high-profile recruit coming out of high school, a four-star prospect that was ranked in the top 50 in the Class of 2013 before leaving high school early to enroll at Georgetown when he was 17 years old. Unfortunately for Domingo, he was never able to crack the rotation with the Hoyas, playing in just 39 games in two seasons in Washington, D.C.
Domingo is a talent, however. He’s a 6-foot-6 shooter that will be able to spend all next season developing his game and his body as he sits out the 2014-2015 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
Domingo is the second player that Martin has added since he got the job at Cal. He’s also brought in ace recruiter Yanni Hufnagel from Vanderbilt.
I’m on record saying that I would consider Marquette freshman Henry Ellenson if I had the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, and while, at this point, I think that Brandon Ingram is probably going to end up going No. 2 — (Maybe No. 1???) — I still believe that Ellenson is going to be one of the best players from this draft class.
Well, just take a look at these highlights from the 26-point, 16-rebound performance he had in a win over Providence last night.
Then remember that Ellenson is 6-foot-11:
A solid poster dunk went down in the junior college ranks last night as Pensacola State sophomore Jamal Thomas finished a dunk through a block attempt against Northwest Florida State.
The 6-foot-3 Thomas used his power and momentum to go through the opposing shot blocker and the play made his head coach, Pete Pena, go nuts with an over-exaggerated fist pump. The video is short, but be sure to watch for Pena’s reaction near the logo at the top right of the screen.
