Another Step Forward to Win?

Posted: December 6, 2017 in AVC Men's Basketball

The Antelope Valley College’s team has been struggling in it’s first 10 games(5-5) with the exception of sophomores D’Maruria Jones, 6’4″and Osi Nwachukwa, 6’4″.  Dee and Osi, co-captains of the team, have been playing exceptionally well.  This struggle is not unexpected as it was clear that it would take some time for the team to gel into the potential it possesses.

It looks like this process is coming together.  Freshman Greg Floyd, 6’10” forward, has figured out his role with AVC and has really started to turn up things for the Marauders.  Below, Jerry Mullen, well known  owner of a national recruiting combine, has mentioned Greg in Twitter and  has invited him to his prestigious Junior College Top 100 in Wichita, KS on July 20-22, 2018.

With these three D-1 quality players putting together their talent in a cohesive manner, its now time for five additional player to get serious about playing at the college basketball level.  All five of these player have shown flashes of their talent in the last few game;

  1. Sophomore  Miles Wise, 6’2″ Combo Guard
  2. Sophomore Jesse Burns, 6’8″, Center
  3. Freshman Jalon Timmons, 6’5″, Forward
  4. Freshman Angelo Solis, 6’4″, Forward
  5. Freshman Wesley De Jesus, 6,3″ Combo Guard

Rebounding, defense, and non-stop energy is needed from all players!

Finally, two starters have not been playing for the past several games due to injuries;

  1. Sophomore  Jamar Kemp, 6’8″, Center
  2. Freshmen Julian Payton, 6’0″, Point Guard

Lets get healthy,  the team needs you.  Friday’s game will be a good test to see if the AVC’s players will take another step forward to integrate  their potential and become an elite  basketball team.
