Boynton and Knights teammate on Breakdown this past summer, senior Eloy Vargas (#30 Scout, #10 Rivals; committed to Florida), was forced to sit out this game due to a school imposed suspension
. The 6-9 power forward foolishly decided to boycott his teams nationally televised matchup with Miami Monsignor Pace on ESPNU as an act of solidarity to support his teammate Ray Taylor, who won the State championship with Pace last year but was not awarded a ring for his efforts. We had the chance to evaluate Vargas earlier this year when American Heritage matched up with Tyreke Evans
American Christian Academy, and came away less than impressed by the toughness and attitude the highly touted prospect displayed on the court. American Heritage in general has been underachieving badly all season long, winning just 9 of their last 16 games, and clearly suffering from a lack of team chemistry.
