Link Academy was headlined by a pair of remarkable stat lines. Four-star guard Ja’Kobe Walter was an absolute monster, finishing with 34 points — exactly half of the team’s final output. Five-star guard Elliot Cadeau was more than happy to let Walter do the scoring, reaching only two points himself but recording 14 assists, seven rebounds and three steals for an all-around very impactful performance.
In the end, Link Academy had to put the pressure on four-star Paul VI guard and Maryland commit DeShawn Harris-Smith, who rose up for 3 in the waning seconds. The good defensive pressure forced a miss; Cadeau retrieved the ball and passed it upcourt; and Link Academy called game. See below; the video should start at a good time stamp. If not, go to the 5:22 mark for the closing 40 seconds.
