Team analysis: Nova saw tremendous success in the HGSL last year. The talent laden program were the 2017 Hoop Group Summer Jam Fest Champs on the 16U level. This team is loaded with size and shooting across the board. One of the standouts on the roster is Max Martz. Max currently boasts seven division one offers. Wing Ben Roderick is also a standout player on the roster. Rodericks has 5 division offers and numerous letters of interest from programs.

“As a program, this will be the most talent we have had from 2nd grade – 11th,” said Program Director Andreas James. “We are passionate about helping athletes reach their goals regardless of division.”  The combination of size and shooting at the wing spots make this team a matchup nightmare for many teams on the circuit. Nova is set to make some serious noise in the HGSL again this year.

Stat to know: The team playing in the HGSL has a GPA average of 3.9 in the last quarter of the school year.
