From Kevin Scarbinsky of AL.com, “Stop me if you've heard this one before. LeFlore High School just lost in the semifinals of the state tournament. You can't blame this one on DeMarcus Cousins, though it'll be an upset if someone doesn't try. One year removed from the Final 48, the local kid made good has become one of college basketball's best players on the road to the Final Four. He's also one of the sport's biggest targets.”
