·1 min read

2023 Tennessee basketball recruiting target and a Volunteers’ signee each had a stellar performance Saturday.

2023 guard Blue Cain scored 26 points for Knoxville Catholic High School (Knoxville, Tennessee) in its 77-57 victory over Knoxville Christian School.

Cain, who also has offers from East Tennessee State, Howard, Georgia Tech, South Carolina and Syracuse, has been one of the state’s top high school guards since his arrival at Knoxville Catholic three years ago and the Fighting Irish are one of Tennessee’s top basketball programs.

Knoxville Catholic (12-3) has made the Division II-AA state tournament in each of the last two seasons and won the state championship in 2020.

BJ Edwards, a point guard and Tennessee signee, had 25 points against the Knights Saturday.

Edwards was the most valuable player of the 2020 state tournament as a sophomore.
