This week’s edition of the JJ Huddle Power Podcast centers on the
world of boys high school basketball, and we are prepared to entertain
you thoroughly with three fresh interviews from a mixture of new and old
guests. We will also illustrate in Dayton–as well as in southwestern
Ohio in general–how ugly the post season is likely going to be in
Division II.

First we bring you the head coach of Dayton Chaminade Julienne High School, Joe Staley.

Staley and his teams at CJ are legends in the Miami Valley and a
quick look at our exclusive JJhd video from last week of the
CJ–Chillicothe game will tell you why. They are fundamentally sound,
and ultra-patient. They also have a star in their senior center, the
6-foot-five John Staley.

John is Joe’s son and he, too is on this week’s podcast. He will attend Northern Kentucky on a full-ride hoops deal next year.

After these interviews you will know a lot more about hoops in the
Dayton area;  last week’s Good Samaritan Hospital Flying to the Hoop
Invitational held at Kettering, Ohio’s Trent Arena; what it was like to
score 34 points on Chillicothe’s elite and high-flying 6-foot-8 post
defender, Malik London; what it is like to lose a league game by twenty
points even though you shot 16-22 from the floor; how good Cincinnati
LaSalle apparently is; and much much more.

Lot’s of shows would be over after a half hour of that, but we are
only getting started… so, how about head coach, Darnell Hoskins of
Thurgood Marshall High School?

Thurgood is potentially poised for another long post season run after having tasted the final four last season.

We”ll discuss the lay of the land in the Dayton City League this
season; next Friday’s showdown with cross-town rivals Dayton Dunbar to
be held at Wright State University’s Nutter Center; what it was like to
play the nation’s number one most sought after recruit, Isaiah Austin
(Baylor) of Arlington Grace Prep of Texas; what it was like to find out
the power forward on that team (the #3 squad in America according to
ESPN) was even more athletic than the main attraction; and much, much
more.

We’ll also hear him lob quite a compliment to the staff of the
JJHuddle Power Podcast – Tim Langevin and Kurt Stubbs – need to pay special
note to this one.

It’s another great day in the neighborhood, but we’ve lots to do.

Let’s get busy.
