White plays big in holiday tourney

Each year, the holiday break from school provides an opportunity for some prime-time high school basketball at tournaments throughout the country. One such tournament is taking place right now in Raleigh, N.C., at the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational – and Thursday one Kansas commitment put on a show.

Andrew White, the 6-foot-6, 180-pound small forward from Charlottesville (VA) The Miller School helped lead his team to a Thursday afternoon victory over Raleigh (N.C.) Body of Christ Christian Academy, 87-63.

The Kansas commitment pumped in a game-high 22 points on 4-of-8 shooting – including 3-of-4 from beyond the arc. He also snagged 11 rebounds, recording a double-double, dished out three assists and grabbed four steals.
