PHILADELPHIA — Isaiah Whitehead knows that his shooting stroke was once one of the weaknesses of his game.
So he worked on it, and worked on it, and worked some more.
By the looks of things, his work paid off.
The 6-foot-5 2014 Brooklyn Lincoln guard drained seven 3-pointers en route to 27 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists and team MVP honors as Team Bravery lost to Team Inspiration, 119-114, in the Mary Kline Underclassmen Game at Philadelphia University. To read more of this story, click here
St. John’s coach Steve Lavin and Minnesota coach Richard Pitino were the latest coaches to stop through Lincoln High School on Tuesday and watch 2014 guard Isaiah Whitehead.
Lincoln coach Tiny Morton said he’s been hearing a lot from those two schools, as well as Louisville, Syracuse and Texas.
Arizona, Kentucky and UCLA have also been linked to the 6-foot-4 Whitehead, the latest Lincoln star after Stephon Marbury, Sebastian Telfair and Lance Stephenson.
St. John’s is the hometown school and will need to add numerous players in the 2014 and ’15 classes and landing Whitehead would be a major get.
Syracuse will always be a factor and has already landed 2014 New York native Chris McCullough of Brewster (N.H.) Academy, as well as New Jersey’s Tyler Ennis of St. Benedict’s Prep and Tyler Roberson of Roselle Catholic in 2013. To read more of this story, click here

So our regular season is over. We finished 15-1 in the PSAL AA-Brooklyn. We lost our first game to Jefferson this week. It was a tough loss because I played with some of those guys this summer with the Juice All-Stars.
