STEVEN ADAMS AND NOTRE DAME PREP VS. MASSANUTTEN ACADEMY
FINAL SCORE: NOTRE DAME PREP 75, MASSANUTTEN ACADEMY 56
Steven Adams' final stats are below. I'll have more from him later tonight. Really a good-natured kid with a great sense of humor in interviews. If he is a player, this city will really like him.
3:18 p.m. - Looks like Steven Adams done for the day. Comes out with 2:36 let and Notre Dame Prep leading, 75-47. Adams finishes with 12 points, 14 rebounds, two steals, two assists and one block. Only took eight shots.

End of the third quarter and Notre Dame Prep leads Massanutten, 65-36. Through three quarters, Steven Adams has 10 points, 11 rebounds and one block.
3:06 p.m. - I need to point out something. Yes, a lot of these Notre Dame Prep players are impressiv.e and team way ahead of most high school teams. But players come from a number of different states and nine of them are fifth-year players. But Steve Adams is a high school senior.
3:02 p.m. - What kind of shape is 'ol Steven in? Just asked coaches to get a break. 2:30 left in third. Notre Dame Prep leads, 61-33.
2:56 p.m. - Another dunk early in second half for Steven Adams. Now nine points.
2:45 p.m. - Really nice crowd here. I'd say between 1,500 and 1,700 - to see two teams from out of state.
