City of Palms prep basketball: Dakari Johnson, Montverde crush Bishop Verot

City of Palms: Monteverde Academy 79, Bishop Verot 35

Eagles breezed past the host Vikings 79-35

Montverde Academy (Orlando) has the No. 1 team in the nation, and they got a big game from its No. 1 player. Center Dakari Johnson powered the Eagles to a 79-35 win over tournament host Bishop Verot.

Johnson, who is a Top-15 recruit, scored 23 points for Montverde on 11-for-11 shooting. Nineteen of those points came in the first half. His 10 rebounds also gave him a double-double. The 6-foot-10, 250-pound center spent much of his time under the basket, shaking off defenders with a variety of post moves and imposing his will on the scoreboard.

Florida commit Kasey Hill also contributed to the blowout, scoring 13 points and, adding four assists and three steals. D'Angelo Russell scored 11 points and dished out four assists , and Miguel Cartagena scored 10 points for the Eagles.

"We just wanted to be disciplined on defense and not get to where we are gambling too much," Montverde coach Kevin Boyle said, "so when you play a team that maybe has more options on offense, you have to play them precisely."

Bishop Verot, on the other hand, couldn't even buy a basket for much of the game without 6-foot-9 star Ricky Doyle, who is out with a foot injury.

"Obviously their big guy is hurt and he's a terrific player," Boyle said. "With our size when he is out of the game, they are really undermanned in that case."

Mason Taylor led the Vikings with eight points, five rebounds, and four assists. Max Williams was right behind him with seven points and a steal, and Mitch Fundingsland chipped in with five points.
