Westtown Looks to Shine at Showcase


Westtown is set to square off against Cushing Academy in the Lehigh Valley Showcase, scheduled for this Sunday. Coach Seth Berger heads this star studded squad, and he has done quite well thus far. Westtown is ranked number one in PA according to MaxPreps, and for good reason. This prep school powerhouse has a surplus of Division 1 talent.

Junior Mohammad Bamba is currently ranked #8 in the junior class according to ESPN. The 7 footer has offers from some of the most storied programs in NCAA history including: UNC, Duke, Kansas, Villanova and Maryland. Sophomore sensation Cam Reddish also comes in as one of the most high-profile players in the event. The 6-7 forward is getting looks from Villanova, UConn, and Seton Hall. Brandon Randolph is yet another Division 1 bound player for Westtown. The 6-5 combo guard has already received offers from Virginia Tech, Marquette, Seton Hall and Vanderbilt as a junior. Najja Hunter is also getting some attention from similar schools. The 6-1 playmaker has received scholarship offers from Seton Hall, Minnesota, Rutgers and Penn State.

The senior is set to play at George Washington next year, one of the fastest growing programs in the NCAA. Bolden runs the Westtown offense to perfection at the point guard spot. his combination of speed, skill and intelligence makes him a nightmare for opponents. He runs the offense both efficiently and effectively due to his ability to create scoring opportunities for himself and for his teammates.

Last season at the Lehigh Valley Showcase, Bolden, Bamba and Hunter combined to score 51 of Westtown’s 70 points in a commanding win over Chester. The trio will look to make it three straight wins at the Lehigh Valley Showcase, this time against a stout Cushing Academy team.

Overall, it should be exciting to see a loaded Westtown team in action this Sunday. Be sure to stay updated with HoopGroup.com for previews of more high caliber teams leading up to Sunday’s event.
