Koufos Set For Rematch With Canton McKinley

OSU recruit Kosta Koufos and the rest of his GlenOak teammates head to the Canton Memorial Civic Center to rematch with McKinley tonight in the Federal League Tournament championship game. GlenOak (15-3) won the previous matchup stopping McKinley's 41 game home winning streak behind a strong effort from Koufos. The 7'2" Buckeye to be had a triple-double with 32 points, 19 rebounds and 10 blocks in an impressive all-around performance. For the season, Koufos is averaging 27 points and 17 rebounds per night. Me likes.

Recently, Koufos was named to the 2007 Jordan Brand All-American Team. If you haven't yet seen this kid play, mark your calendar for April 21st. He plays with that European style and is comfortable facing up or with his back to the basket. He also sports a feathery touch from beyond the three point line and would form an insane duo with Greg Oden should he smartly stay in school for one more year of seasoning. ESPN2 will televise the Jordan Brand All-American Classic from Madison Square Garden. Tuning in will also give you a chance to boo the two-time Mr. Basketball in Ohio, O.J. Mayo. That guy is trouble waiting to happen.
