Last week, Maryland's Montrose Christian and Virginia's Oak Hill Academy clashed in the ESPN RISE High School Basketball Showcase Finals. Two of the nation's top high school basketball programs, Montrose and Oak Hill also happen to be Jordan-sponsored schools and unveiled Team Exclusive colorways of the Air Jordan 2011 during the tournament. Last week, we got a glimpse at the Oak Hill shoe. Today, a closer look at both pairs.
Montrose Christian was fitted with a pair in white and green, while Oak Hill gets a white and red colorway with yellow accenting. Both shoes feature ESPN's RISE Showcase logo on the right tongue, with the other sporting school logo embossing. Capping off both looks is an icy translucent outsole.
In a double-OT thriller, Montrose Christian trumped Oak Hill by a score of 71-64. Tyrone Johnson led the Mustangs with 21 points, including 19 in the second half.
