Warriors At A Glance

Legendary coach Steve Smith (1,199-88 in 36 years), a four-time USA Today National Coach of the Year, brings the fabled Oak Hill program back to a City of Palms for the second time in four years. The young Warriors’ nine losses were their most since the 1978-79 season, but only three players graduated and several breakout stars emerged, notably 6-3 JR Caleb Foster (13.6 ppg, 5.0 apg, 3.2 rpg), who shot 52.2 percent from the field and 46.9 percent from beyond the arc, and 6-7 JR Justin McBride. New arrivals 6-8 SR Devin Ree (23.2 ppg, 12 rpg, 5 apg, 3 blocks at Terry MS) – Mississippi’s No. 1 prospect and an LSU commit – and Pittsburgh pledge 6-4 SR Judah Mintz (16 ppg at Gonzaga DC, 18.2 ppg at this summer’s Nike EYBL Peach Jam) add two big weapons, and a talented supporting cast includes 6-1 SR Xavier Brown, 6-2 SOPH Tybo Bailey and 6-10 SR Jalen Reed. … Oak Hill has been crowned national champions nine times, including three in a four-year span (2004-07), highlighted by a 65-game winning streak (2000-02) and eight 40-win seasons. The 1992-93 Warriors, playing in an era where high-powered prep academies were mostly a thing of the future, finished 36-0 and blew out opponents by 32 points per game. … Smith has coached 33 McDonald’s All-Americans and 36 future NBA players (16 first-round picks), including Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Rajon Rondo, Jerry Stackhouse, Ron Mercer, Rod Strickland and Josh Smith.
