Ferrell, Park Tudor come up short in 2A final

The improbable run to the 2A state title for Park Tudor ended one step short of a championship. The Panthers, who could have become the first team to win a state title with 10 losses, fell 41-38 to Wheeler, despite 20 points, five rebounds and four assists from sophomore guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell.

Park Tudor had chances to tie the game in the final 19 seconds, but Ferrell came up short on three different attempts from behind the 3-point line.

Here’s Ferrell, who reported via his Twitter account that Indiana offered a scholarship on March 9, talking about the final seconds of the game and facing double teams:

    Alex, Thoughts on Yogi?

  • Strong, quick, can score off the dribble and shoot it. Handled double teams very well. Undersized, but he's a competitor.

    Recollections of Scoonie Penn ?

    the video i saw on here left me thinking zeke. same number, similar game.

    also- if the kid had 20 points, the rest of his team combined must have had 18.

    I was curious as to how Yogi (5'10″ 160) would match up size wise compared to the main ball handlers in the final four:

    Mich St.- Kalin Lucas (6'1″ 190) Korie Lucious (5'11″ 170)

    Butler (i feel like they are a point guard by committee team)- Ronald Nored (6'0″ 174) Willie Veasley (6'3″ 206) Shelvin Mack (6'3″ 215) Shawn Vanzant (6'0″ 172) Zach Haun (6'1″ 176)

    WV- Joe Mazzulla (6'2″ 200) Truck Bryant (6'2″ 200)

    Duke- Nolan Smith (6'2″ 185) Jon Scheyer (6'5″ 190)

    Considering Yogi is a sophomore in high school, he will either keep growing height wise or get stronger in the weight room. The size issue should only be an issue if he is still 5'10″ 160 when he gets to be a senior. Obviously, having a bigger point guard is not completely necessary to win games. As long as the pg is a facilitator for the offense and can break down his man and get to the basket to open up shooters, size should not be a huge problem.
