Class of 2013 star Kendall Stephens put on a clinic in front of a host of colleges, including Wisconsin and Purdue as St. Charles East opened the Jack Tosh Holiday Classic with a 47-44 win over Maines South as Spencer Motley drained a three-point basket at the buzzer to win the game.

Stephens, a 6'4 shooting guard, put his deft shooting touch on full display as he connected on 5 three-pointers, all in the first half en route to scoring a game-high 22 points. Stephens continues to see his recruiting stock skyrocket, and he is firmly entrenched as one of the truly elite prospects in a loaded Illinois Class of 2013.

Stephens is a big guard with long arms and a shooting range that extends out beyond the three-point arc. Stephens already delivers with advanced skills on the floor, and is a player who may still grow, and is definitely a player who will continue to see his recruiting stock skyrocket as he physically matures and adds weight and muscle to his frame.

Stephens staked his team to a 42-29 lead after three quarters ahead of a fierce 15-2 Maine South run that knotted the game at 44-44 ahead of Motley drilling a running three-point basket at the buzzer to win the game.

St. Charles East will next face Chicago Brother Rice this afternoon at the event.
