Antwoine Anderson is not the first name you hear when Bishop Kearney is brought up. While Super sophomore Thomas Bryant and Syracuse commit Chinonso Obokoh get the majority of the attention, their dynamite point guard might be the most important player on the team. Anderson controls the tempo, distributes the ball, and has no problem getting big time buckets when Kearney needs him to be a scorer.
The 6’0 athletic guard quickly became one of the most exciting players at the 2013 Dunk 4 Diabetes Shootout in Canton, Ohio. Anderson’s ball handling skills made it nearly impossible for defenders to stay in front of him and his ability to improvise once he got into the lane made him a potent scorer. After establishing himself as a scoring threat Antwoine used his vision to set up teammates for easy scoring opportunities.
In his second game of the event Anderson put down the biggest dunk of the entire tournament and had the crowd buzzing for about five minutes. While Anderson’s athleticism tends to grab attention, his ability to create off the dribble makes him a truly talented guard.
