Coach’s Comments:
As a 1st year Team Hustle player, Malik Lawrence Jr. has exceeded our expectations. He has shown to be a solid defender, extremely athletic, and aggressive point/shooting guard. He possesses outstanding basketball awareness that enables him to be the floor general on the floor. He is a very unselfish passer and a great shut down defender. Malik’s level of play and passion for the game is continuously shown when he encourages his teammates to play at a higher level. At the 2nd Annual Summer Showcase, Malik had over 55 points, 21 assists, 12 rebounds for the weekend, and he played with the 8th graders, because they were short of players. Our hopes for Malik are for him to continue to work on his leadership skills on and off the court in order to prepare himself for the HS-level and beyond.
