A Butler commit, Neese tallied 34 points with 14 rebounds, seven assists and five steals in a 70-46 triumph over North Putnam. The 6-3 guard followed with 39 points, eight rebounds and five steals in a 65-48 victory over South Putnam. He also netted 20 points with 10 rebounds and two steals as the Clovers defeated Monrovia 59-53 for the sectional crown. Over three games, Neese was 32-of-67 from the field, 17-of-43 on 3-pointers and 12-of-17 on free throws.
