Matthew St Martin / #20 / 7th Select

Matthew embodies the perfect teammate. One of the more unselfish players to be around. He would rather assist an easier bucket then take a good shot of his own.  This past weekend at Providence Jammiest, Matthew had a breakout tournament. Scoring 10+ in all three games,  and leading the team defensively.   Game 1, down 7 with 1 minute remaining, Matthew hit a clutch three and assisted on both baskets, one of them being the tying basket to force the game into OT.  In game 3, Matthew lead the way  in points, rebounds, and steals, while playing a handful of positions. Put the skills aside, Matthew is one of the best teammates I have seen. He communicates, applauds and energizes the entire team all game long.  He has a bright future.

Sam Pantera (6th West – #50)-

Sam Pantera (6th West – #50)-
Sam is a monster. Averaging a double double on the season, he is a true leader for 6th West. With out much size on the roster, Sam is asked to take on a huge workload, while playing extended minutes for a big man. He has made his presence known down low, and from the outside, as he can stretch it out when need be. His ability to get rebounds and run the floor has been the biggest game changer. A Center who can handle the ball is rare, especially in 6th grade. Sam is another long time ASA Hoops vet, playing since 3rd grade. I am proud to say I have watched him develop into a Special talent over the years.

Ishan Kundu (7th Select – #25)

 

Ishan has had a great Season for ASA 7th grade Select.   He has been a great teammate and competitor on the court.  His most promising attribute is his ability to finish at the basket: Floaters, runners, both hand finishes, fadeaway, and-1’s. His jumper has consistently improved to the point of hitting 7 three’s this past weekend.  Perhaps the most improved aspect of his game is his defense.  Ishan has consistently taken the challenge of guarding one of the others teams best players and has thrived doing so.
