Friday Night at the Arizona Cactus Classic

Gonzaga prospects continued to play well into the night tonight at the Arizona Cactus Classic. Among the teams competing were the Dallas Mustangs and the Seattle Rotary Select. Dallas includes Marshall Henderson and Seattle has Josh Smith, Anthony Wroten, and Peyton Siva.

Marshall Henderson's team played and defeated the Compton Magic 59-55. After a mix up in the scoring we have learned that Henderson was indeed #15 for the Mustangs in which case he of had 22 points. The player listed as #15 is Adrick McKinny who is listed as a power forward. Henderson shot 5-10 from 3-point land in the contest and was the second leading scorer for his Dallas Mustangs. A very impressive debut for Marshall in a Dallas Mustangs victory.

Seattle Rotary Selects 2010 recruit Josh Smith (right) was outstanding in Seattle's game against Inland. Although Seattle lost to Inland in an 89-94 shootout, Smith made a huge impression. He went for 20 points, 9 rebounds, and 2 blocks and he dominated the paint throughout the game. Peyton Siva led all scorers with 35 points and Wroten added 15 points on his own.

Another player of interest for Gonzaga is Ricardo Ratliffe who plays for Boo Williams. Ratliffe scored 18 points and had 7 boards in Boo Williams one point victory over California Supreme.

I believe that you will find that the doofus who posted the statistics for the Dallas Mustangs game listed the WRONG name with some of the player numbers. # 15 in the program is Marshall Henderson, Not Adrick McKinney as shown in the stats. Maybe you can confirm whether or not this is true but I believe it is. So the #15 in the stats who scored 22 points is Henderson more than likely.

That is what we thought but they have the roster for the Mustangs up as well and Marshall Henderson is #4. We will get it straightened out as soon as possible. Hopefully he was the one who scored the 22 points!

On the Cactus Classic website, you can view a copy of the program which lists each individual player on every team along with their number, and the program lists # 15 as Marshall Henderson. I seriously doubt that the power forward Adrick Mckinney shot 10 3-pointers during the game. I'm pretty sure that whoever they have posting stats don't exactly know what they're doing which is not good for a big tournament like this. Tournament officials need to be made aware of this problem.

Were you able to contact tournament officials and confirm whether the statistics they posted had the names mixed up ?

By the way, # 15 was the "leading" scorer for the Dallas Mustangs, not the 2nd leading scorer. The 2nd leading scorer was #1 with 20 points.

Incorrect Cactus Classic Statistics Posted


I have been able to confirm that the statistics posted at the Cactus Classic for Friday nights Dallas Mustangs game against the Compton Magic are incorrect. For that game, the statistics posted for Adrick McKinney are really for Marshall Henderson. Tournament officials have not made the correction yet even though they have been notified. This is an example of why you can't always believe everything you read.

Marshall has been high point man for each of the three pool games, scoring 22, 19, and 13 points respectively.
