Keyonte George and Chris Livingston, two of the top players in the high school basketball recruiting Class of 2022 who each have made official visits to Kansas, were matched against each other at last weekend’s Adidas Stripe Select Basketball AAU showcase in Hoover, Alabama.

George, a 6-5, 190-pound senior point guard/shooting guard from iSchool Entrepreneurial Academy in Lewisville, Texas, scored 24 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in Southern Assault AAU’s 74-63 victory over Livingston’s We All Can Go squad.

Livingston, a 6-7, 210-pound small forward from Buchtel High School in Akron, Ohio, who is ranked No. 4 nationally by Rivals.com, scored 19 points for the losing team. George is ranked No. 5 nationally in the Class of 2022 by Rivals.com.

“The more I watch George, the more I see him as a lead guard. He has been noted for his scoring, but in this one he looked like a paint-touch point guard. He defended the point of attack well and he made some great passes and reads,” wrote Jamie Shaw of Rivals.com.

George has visited KU, Texas, Baylor and Oklahoma State and also has Kentucky on his list of schools. He averaged 23.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.1 steals a game his junior season at iSchool Academy.

He told SI.com at the Adidas tourney he will announce his college choice “by late August.”

“I don’t have a set date or anything like that, but that’s when I want to get it done,” George told SI.com. “I have to sit down with my mom and a couple people in my circle to figure it all out after the live periods. The visits definitely turned things up a level because they were all great.”

He noted to SI.com that, “All of the schools see me as a combo guard who can play either position. I look at myself as being whatever the team needs to win. I’m comfortable at both positions.”

Livingston finished the matchup against George with 19 points, but it was his “toughness and ability to make winning plays that really stood out,” Shaw wrote.

Livingston has visited KU and Kentucky. He told 247sports.com he will visit Memphis, Georgetown and Tennessee State. He also has North Carolina and others on his list.

Of his recruitment, Livingston told Eric Bossi of 247sports.com: “I loved the Kansas and Kentucky visits. I feel as though the coaching staffs and the atmosphere of the campuses they just did their best to show me their programs and put their best foot forward. I want to wait until next year (to announce choice). I’m looking for where I can strive, how the fanbase loves their basketball, the media and how they treat their players, the atmosphere of the program, the facilities and the coaching staff.”

Livingston also is said to be considering playing pro basketball

Gialamas, George

MADISON – George Gialamas, husband, father, Papou, friend, CEO of the Gialamas Company, well-known Madison developer, and community leader, died peacefully at his home Saturday morning, May 8, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.

George Thomas Gialamas was born in Chicago on Oct. 20, 1938, to Thomas George and Demetra (Chibucos) Gialamas.

In his youth, George developed a strong work ethic when he began delivering groceries on a bicycle. He also worked in a canning factory and as a hospital orderly. In his teen years he worked at his family hotel, The Grant Park Hotel, in downtown Chicago.

His secondary education was at Morgan Park Military Academy in Chicago, and he graduated from Marquette University with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy in 1962. During his college years at Marquette, he acted and sang at the Skylight Theater.

Following college, George joined the IBM Sales and Marketing team in Chicago. His 14 years with the company included time in Chicago, New York City and Madison, Wis.

On Aug. 20, 1970, George married Candy McKinstry at the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Madison. They made their home on Thorstrand Road in Madison, where they raised their family.

George and Candy treasured their family. Their children were always included in all of their celebrations, activities and travel experiences, including trips to every continent. The Greek Islands were always their favorite destination.

Their home was a gathering place and always a welcoming venue for guests. This included christenings, birthdays, holidays, fundraisers, political gatherings and weekly get-togethers with family and friends. Their door was always open and their hospitality unparalleled. George loved his Sunday dinners with friends and family. He loved people, and people felt loved and welcomed by him.

In 1976 George and his wife, Candy, founded the Gialamas Company, the Madison-based commercial real estate development and brokerage company. From inception, company projects were underway in Madison and the surrounding area.

In 1984, ground breaking for Old Sauk Trails Business Park began. The 500-acre park on the west side of Madison was one of George’s proudest accomplishments.

The Gialamas Company was born with integrity, a strong work ethic and team concept built on the philosophy that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” George always wanted success for his company and his competitors. He was not only a strong leader for his own business, but helped many others in the community. Numerous start-up companies and charities have benefited through George providing investments, workspace, advice and guidance.

From humble beginnings and hard work, George became a true American success story.

He understood the importance of building strong relationships and always believed his staff was his strongest asset. George was an innovator and a visionary. He understood the importance of environmental stewardship for future generations and was always in search of the next great design or engineering innovation.

A passion for community needs, education and support of the arts became a strong impetus and tradition of philanthropic support for The Gialamas Company and The Gialamas

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Competing for the second time this 2021 season, the Navy women’s rowing team put together a strong effort on Saturday with a three-race sweep of George Washington. Racing on their home Severn River for the first time since April 6, 2019, the Mids (2-0) defeated the Colonials (1-3) in the first and second varsity eight events by six-plus seconds before going one-two-three in the varsity four competition.

“Today we were very fortunate to be able to run a home race against George Washington,” remarked head coach Joe Schlosberg. “One of the biggest things we lost over the past year was the opportunity to gain race experience so each time we line up, we learn more about ourselves and how to race.”

The action began with the top varsity eight crews going head-to-head. Competitive during the early portion of the race, Navy started pulling away in the middle 1,000 meters. The Mids were comfortably ahead when the teams hit the seawall and they found that next gear down the stretch to earn a 6.05-second victory over the Colonials, 6:52.54 to 6:58.59.

“We were able to push our bow ahead of GW and build out to a four-seat lead early on,” said Schlosberg when recapping the V8 race. “By the 1,000-meter mark, we pushed out to an open water lead, but were just not as aggressive as I would have liked. However during the final stretch along the seawall, we were able to find the aggression and speed that we have and were able to close strong.”

In the second varsity eight contest, Navy had a pair of boats entered alongside George Washington’s 2V. The visitors broke out to an early lead over Navy’s second and third varsity crews before the Mids’ 2V began its comeback. Once Navy’s second varsity boat got moving it couldn’t be stopped as the Mids turned in a dominant home stretch and won by 8.21 seconds, 7:03.63 to 7:11.84. Navy’s 3V challenged George Washington and came in less than four seconds off the Colonials’ mark with a time of 7:15.74.

“GW jumped out on us at the start of the 2V,” remarked Schlosberg. “The boat remained calm and steadily worked their way, inch-by-inch back into and then through the GW boat. The Navy 3V, also in the race, locked themselves just off the GW stern and would not let go. When the 2V hit the seawall, this boat found another gear and broke open water on GW and kept opening. The 3V never relented and put together a great race as well.”

A quartet of varsity four boats concluded the day of racing on the Severn on Saturday morning. In a showing of Navy’s depth and quality throughout its ranks, the Mids had three crews all clock in ahead of the Colonials’ top four-person crew. Navy’s team in the “Venom” shell found itself battling with “Viper” for most of the 2,000 meters as Venom won by less than
