Findlay Prep on ESPN on Thursday

Findlay Prep-Henderson (Nev.), where Oakland native and former¬†Salesian star Jabari Brown transfered to after last season, will be on ESPN on Thursday in a showdown game against Northland-Columbus (Ohio) at 4 p.m. Brown is second on the team with 19.1 points per game. Findlay Prep is the No. 1 team in the nation and Northland is currently No. 4 and features Jared Sullinger, a 6-foot-8 power forward who is commited to Ohio State and one of the top-ranked recruits in the nation. I’ll be at Newark Memorial for a pair of games, but I’ll have my DVR set.
