Ivan Rabb – McDonald’s All American

Michael Jordan was one. LeBron James was one. Kevin Durant was one. And now Ivan Rabb ’15 is one, too.

O’Dowd students gathered in the cafeteria after school on Jan. 28 to watch the McDonald’s All American Games Selection Show on ESPNU erupted in cheers when it was announced that Rabb was named to the boys’ west team roster. See the final roster.

Paris Austin ’15 Breaks Single-Game Scoring Record

Paris Austin ‘15 scored a school single-game record 43 points – including 12 3-pointers – in a 108-77 victory over Piedmont High on Jan. 21.

The previous single-game scoring record holder, Jasen Powell ’90, now the head athletic trainer for the Los Angeles Clippers, scored 41 points in three quarters in 1990. “A 25-year reign is pretty good to hold a record. I’m glad it happened for this young fella,” Powell said.

Powell recalled that he spoke with Paris at a Clippers/Warriors game about O’Dowd basketball. “He told me that he was coming for that record and he did it! That inspiration, drive and desire can and will take him much further than the game of basketball,” Powell said.

What a performance by Paris Austin last night. He scored a school single-game record 43 points – with 12 3-pointers – in a 108-77 victory over Piedmont High.

O’Dowd, which has opened this season with a 5-2 record, has already played the No. 1 team (Oak Hill Academy-Mouth of Wilson, Virginia) and the No. 5 team (Montverde Academy, Florida), and has a game scheduled against No. 2 Wheeler-Marietta, Georgia as well as a rematch with Oak Hill Academy.

No. 1 Ben Simmons and No. 5 Ivan Rabb

Nearly two years ago when Ben Simmons made the 12-hour flight from Australia to the U.S. to enroll at Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.) he mentally stored the list of the top basketball players in the 2015 class to give himself a goal to aspire to.

Atop that list? Ivan Rabb, a center at Bishop O’Dowd (Oakland, Calif.).

“I wanted to see which players I needed to play against to be considered the best,” said Simmons, an LSU signee. “I love competition and I was pretty eager to matchup with those guys. Ivan was the No. 1 player; I definitely remember that.”

Now it’s Simmons who’s the marked man, holding down the No. 1 spot in the ESPN 100; Rabb checks in at No. 5. Read more…
