"It's All About The Game"

Grace Prep wants to show and prove

Texas school has a battle on its hands.


December 8, 2011 - The National High School Hoops Festival provides teams an opportunity to brand themselves national players, crews to be reckoned with on a broad scale. Arlington, Texas’ Grace Prep is just such a program.
“I’m a believer that you show your game when the lights come on” said Grace Prep’s head coach, Ray Forsett. Of coming east to play national power Oak Hill, Forsett shared his kids “are hyped about it”.

Don’t think for a minute Grace Prep is the proverbial ‘Little Sisters of the Poor’.

Leading the Lions is Baylor-bound, Class of 2012 center Isaiah Austin. Long – at 7’0” and a svelte 215 pounds – Austin has a wide skill set, one which allows for triple doubles to be had. In fact, Austin notched one this week, tallying 25 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 blocks.

Class of 2014 Emmanuel Mudiay is another high quality player, standing 6’4” and weighing 185 pounds, the player Forsett dubbed “a strong guard” is primed for the challenge Oak Hill’s talented backcourt. The Lions also boast Class of 2013 forward Jordan Mikey, a 6’8”, 210 pound performer that has piqued the interest of Kansas, Baylor, Oklahoma, Providence, or as Forsett noted “all the Big 12”.

Can Forsett’s charges deal a blow to Oak Hill? “We will see what we can do. We have to step up” was his response.

Saturday, December 10th at 5:45p, the question will begin to be answered.
