James Bell & Cory Joseph photos

A Villanova signee took on a top level recruiting target last Saturday when Florida's Montverde Academy took on Findlay Prep from Nevada in the Montverde Academy Invitational Tournament.

The #2 ranked Findlay Prep basketball team dropped its second game this season Saturday, losing to host #22 ranked Montverde Academy, 54-51.  Montverde led by as many as 11 points in the second quarter before Findlay rallied to make things interesting. It had two 3-point attempts to tie in the final seconds that nearly went in.

Cory Joseph led Findlay with 23 points.  James Bell also scored 23 points, including five 3 pointers.  Bell and teammate Clyburn proved to be the difference, producing all of Montverde Academy's offense over the final two minutes as Findlay made a furious charge.   Both Cory Joseph and James Bell were named to the All-Tournament Team.  CJ also was named Tournament Most Outstanding Player.

Thanks to our Montverde contact who sent us these pictures of 'Nova-bound James Bell and 'Nova Recruiting Target Cory Joseph from that game.
