Take Flight Challenge recap

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. -- The first Take Flight Challenge was littered with Division I prospects, and the level of play was outstanding. Arizona State-bound Tra Holder put together a stellar performance with his efficient scoring while Loyola (Los Angeles) kept its undefeated season going winning an epic battle with highly regarded Compton. However, the biggest buzz out West is whether a virtual unknown prior to the summer -- UCLA-bound Thomas Welsh -- could sneak into the McDonald's All-American Game due to his dominating performances each and every night.
