Future Texas Stars Take the Court Together

Avery Bradley and Tristan Thompson, who will suit up for the Longhorns in 2009 and 2010 respectively, played their first game together after Thompson transfered to Bradley’s Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.). But it was Bradley who stole the show, scoring 22 points in the win.
UNIVERSITY PARK, Texas — For Tristan Thompson, Friday night’s debut for the Findlay Prep Pilots (Henderson, Nev.) amounted to dipping his toe in the water.

The 6-foot-9 junior post who last week left St. Benedict’s (Newark, N.J.) played four second-half minutes as Findlay, No. 3 in the ESPNRISE national rankings, defeated God’s Academy (Dallas) 74-51 at SMU’s Moody Coliseum as part of the five-game Dallas Basketball Classic. Thompson, who is from Toronto, scored one point and had one block as the Pilots improved their record to 29-0.
