Kaosi Ezeagu has been making a name for himself this year at Hamilton Heights in Tennessee; if not by the extremely vocal presence of his game but by his plays like the one that happened at a recent game.
Ezeagu was awarded Most Outstanding Player at the 26th Annual New Albany Hotbed Classic in Mississippi.
The Brampton native has earned himself plenty of recognition south of the border after being named the Most Outstanding Player at the 26th Annual New Albany Hotbed Classic in Mississippi on Jan. 29.
During the third quarter of a game, the six-foot-ten Ezeagu shattered the backboard with a dunk.
Hamilton Heights was leading by 22 points at the time. The game had to be resumed in another gym, after a delay of more than three hours. The 17-year-old junior finished with four points and three rebounds in the contest.
Ezeagu blasted onto North Pole Hoops national radar at the NPH Showcase camp last summer before getting an invitation to tryout for the 17U National team. Although the coaching staff was impressed with what he brought to the table, the skill set wasn’t yet tuned enough for that level.
At Hamilton Heights he is being serviced as a starter that protects the rim and rebounds at high rates. With an offensive skill set that is coming together, he is shaping up to be a highly effective center.
