Highlights: Jalen Johnson vs. Patrick Baldwin

The early non conference schedule in Wisconsin prep basketball generated a much-hyped matchup between Nicolet and Sussex Hamilton Saturday night in the NY2LA Sports Classic.

More specifically, it pitted Jalen Johnson against Patrick Hamilton. Both players did not disappoint.

In Nicolet’s 78-70 victory in front of a packed house at Brookfield Central High, Johnson finished with a triple-double (30 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists) while Baldwin scored 21 points.

The 6-9 Johnson is a unanimous five-star prospect and rated the No.4 player in the country for the 2020 class by the 247sports composite. Holding over 25 offers, Johnson has already taken official visits to Arizona, Duke and UCLA, as well as unofficial visits to Kentucky, Wisconsin and many others. He doesn’t plan to make a commitment until next fall.

The 6-8 Baldwin is rated an early five-star recruit and ranked No.1 overall in the country in the 2021 class by the composite. The Badgers offered him in August, one of 17 offers Baldwin currently holds.
