Villanova bound Phil Booth scored 21 points in the Senior Game of the Mary Kline Classic on Saturday en route to being named MVP along with Miami-Bound JaQuan Newton.

The 4th Mary Kline Classic is a charity high school basketball event that brings some of the best recruits in the country to benefit the National Brain Tumor Society and Brain Tumor Research at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

According to City of Basketball Love, the 6'3" Mount St. Joseph [MD] product "was everywhere on the offensive front–connecting on 3-pointers, finishing down the basket, and even throwing down a few transition slams."

COBL, also noted that fellow incoming freshman, Mikal Bridges, "didn’t take many shots but did grab a few boards and get a few blocked shots."

#TheFuture is bright for Villanova Basketball fans.
