City of Palms: Tuesday Recap

Some of the nation's best take the floor for the 50th annual City of Palms tournament throughout the course of this week. Here's a breakdown of Tuesday's action.




A day after posting a very impressive offensive outing, Westminster struggled to keep things going outside of the first quarter in tonight’s matchup. They started off with a four-point lead after the end of the first quarter and were down just one at half. However, the wheels fell off in the third. 

LuHi dominated the third quarter, out-scoring Westminster 28-10 during that period. This is where LuHi’s defense really started to take off, and they got easy buckets in transition. They turned 22 Westminster turnovers into 29 points and scored 32 on the break. 

2024 five-star VJ Edgecombe led the charge with an efficient 20 points and seven boards while 2025 Kayden Mingo added 17 points and six steals. Westminster’s Alex Constanza led all scorers with 23 points in the game. 


This was a highly anticipated matchup between two top-five senior prospects, Ace Bailey and Dylan Harper, who are both heading to team up next year at Rutgers. The duo combined for 52 points and knocked down eight threes collectively, but Harper’s team had too much secondary help in comparison to Bailey’s. 

Don Bosco was led by Dylan Harper’s 28 points on 11-17 shooting, and he also attacked the glass, grabbing eight boards. Harper dished out three assists to lead his team. Keiner Asprilla posted a double-double of 12 points and 14 rebounds, while Isaiah Brown added 15 and six. 

McEachern’s Ace Bailey scored 24 of the team’s 50 points and was the only player to finish in double figures. 


In Tuesday’s nightcap, Archbishop Ryan jumped out to an early 3-point lead at the end of the first quarter thanks in part to cold shooting from Columbus. Columbus would go on to more than double Archbishop Ryan’s scoring output in each of the remaining quarters and absolutely dominated in the second half. 

Columbus’ Cameron Boozer, the number two player in the country in 2025, was the headliner in the matchup. He finished with 16 points and eight rebounds, while Michigan State signee Jase Richardson led the game in scoring with 17 and Cayden Boozer scored 11 while dishing out eight assists. 

Florida Gulf Coast signee Darren Williams was a bright spot in the loss for Archbishop Ryan, finishing with 16 points. Georgetown signee Thomas Sorber pitched in with 11 points and nine rebounds.
