Flint C-A is for real: Young and talented Cavs fend off Flint Powers

Posted: December 12, 2009 by Jared Field in High School

This just in: Flint Carman-Ainsworth is for real.

Don’t be fooled by the Cavs’ 78-72 victory over Flint Powers on Friday night. It really wasn’t that close. The Cavs led by nine at the half and by as many as 18 in the third quarter.

I’m not afraid to admit when I’m wrong, so here goes: Flint C-A is just flat-out better than Powers.

Powers got killed in the post as Flint C-A seniors Dee Chapman and Jaylen Larry combined for 32 points. And, wouldn’t you know it, the Cavs also had the best player on the floor. Amid all the hype about Patrick O’Brien and Patrick Lucas-Perry, it was Glenn Cosey who proved to be the best player on this night, willing his team to victory with nine points in crunch time and 27 in the game.

Player notes

Dee Chapman: He did what he wanted against Powers down low. Dee still doesn’t have much game outside of 10 feet, but it didn’t matter. They had nothing for him.

Glenn Cosey: He can shoot, dribble and defend. He’s imposing for a guard, confident and tireless. Love his game. He’s the heart and soul of this team.

Denzel Watts: C-A’s prized freshman is going to be really (really, really) good. Love his size for the PG and his confidence with the ball. I saw him call off help in the backcourt late in the game and I don’t know of another freshman who wouldn’t have been shaking in their sneakers.

Patrick O’Brien: Struggled shooting it, but still finished with 20 points. O’Brien’s lucky that he possesses that Irishman toughness, because the poor guy was getting hacked to pieces in the post.

Patrick Lucas-Perry: Made some tough shots in the lane like he always does. Still doesn’t look like a Big Ten guard to me, but he’s really good nonetheless. Great matchup between PLP and Cosey. (Cosey looks like a Big Ten guard, at least physically.) He had 21 including a few triples.

Demarco Sanders: Struggled at the foul line, but still finished with 18 points. He’s lightning-quick with the ball and really gets out in transition. He takes way too long loading up his outside shots, though.
