The 6-foot-3 Carey also scored 29 points on New Year’s Day when Immaculate defeated Ranney, 69-61, the team featuring 2019 stars Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine. “We think he’s a McDonalds All-American, and we hope that he gets voted into the game,” Immaculate coach Jimmy Salmon told Montclair Local. “He’s been playing great.” With Syracuse likely to lose Tyus Battle to the NBA after this season, Carey should provide some instant offense in a class that also includes shooting guard Buddy Boeheim and small forward Darius Bazley. Carey may not be at Syracuse for long. “They feel I can be a one-and-done type of guy,” Carey told Syracuse.com. “They compare me to Tyler Ennis and Jonny Flynn,” he added. “Hopefully if we play well and win, and do my thing, I could be in the NBA in a year.” GEORGETOWN, OREGON, UCONN WATCH KAHLIL WHITNEY Current Georgetown assistant and former Seton Hall head man Louis Orr, Oregon assistant Tony Stubblefield and UConn assistant Dwayne Killings sat courtside to watch several players, including Class of 2019 Roselle Catholic wing Kahlil Whitney, who had 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 7 rebounds as Roselle Catholic held off St. Mary’s, 64-59 in OT. “Oh yeah, I talked to him before the game,” Whitney said of Orr. “The Oregon coach was here, too.” The No. 12-ranked small forward in the Class of 2019 per 247Sports.com, Whitney previously broke down several schools recruiting him, including Syracuse, St. John’s, Georgetown, UConn, Miami and Illinois.
