Gilchrist Gets The Best Of Muhammad


In one of the most anticipated games of the 2011 Spalding Hoophall Classic, 2011 Kentucky commit Michael Gilchrist and his No. 2 ranked St Patrick Celtics took on 2012 UK top recruit target Shabazz Muhammad and his Bishop Gorman Gaels.

At the 5:58 mark of the second quarter, the Gaels held a brief lead of 19-17 against Gilchrist and the Celtics, but that lead disappeared like snow in the dessert as the Celtics ended the first half on a 14-4 run to take a 36-28 halftime lead.

Gilchrist open the third quarter six straight points, extending the St Pat lead to 42-2, closing the door on Bishop.

Muhammad, who went to the half time locker room with only 5 points, went on a second half terror scoring 23 of his game high 28 points in a losing effort.

With the 2011 class locked in, UK has turned it’s recruiting efforts on the number 3 overall player and number 1 shooting guard, in the class of 2012, and Kentucky is high on Muhammad’s list.

Here are some Shabazz highlights from the game against Gilchrist and St Pats.



Go Cats!!!
