DECIDING FACTOR(S) IN THE MAC IRVIN/CAL SUPREME MATCH UP.
When class of 2014 TOP PROSPECT 5'9 (PG) Parker Jackson-Cartwright has big games, CAL SUPREME WINS, when he doesn't they lose so it's obvious that CAL SUPREME will only go as far as Parker Jackson-Cartwright can take them. As far as the MAC IRVIN FIRE goes, it will be very tough to keep them from going very far in this year's Nike EYBL Finals as long as TOP PROSPECT 6'7 (W/G) Jabari Parker is on the floor.
