Antone Warren, 6’10”, 265, Signs Pro Contract, Independiente, Argentina…September 2017

It was a tough decision for the big man but, the amount of interest from the professional level was very strong.  After a great year at Antelope Valley College “Ace” decided his college career was over and it was time to play with the “big boys.”  It doesn’t happen very often where a JUCO player moves directly to a pro team but everyone I have talked to agrees this is the right decision for Antone Warren. 

Here is some highlight video for AVC’s big man!

Antelope Valley CC’s Antone Warren (6’10, 265) has decided to forgo a college scholarship and will pursue professional basketball opportunities. He has signed with an agent and will declare for the NBA Draft. The center averaged 11.4 points and 7.4 rebounds in 17 minutes game per game this season. He also shot 63% from the field. These stats are impressive for a center at the junior college level.

Warren is the #5 ranked junior college player in the 2017 class and the #1 center. Warren possesses a unique combination of skill, strength, and size. He has great hands and feel in the post, using his strength to create low post position each time down the floor. He has worked tirelessly to improve his conditioning and it has showed. He is a presence in the paint on both ends of the floor and can also sprint up and down the floor.  He is a good athlete who has a massive frame.

Congrats Ace.

FB_IMG_1507518683116The 23rd AVC professional player, Antone “Ace” Warren, joined Independiente, Argentina professional basketball team this year.  Ace was one of few basketball players(two of 23) that moved directly from JUCO to a professional contract.

As you can see from the photo above, Argentina is a basketball crazed country who play the game with “men” with five players 6’8″ or above.  Good luck in your new career Mr. Warren.
