ORLANDO, FLA–David Aromoloran has taken his game to a new level. The 5’11 guard carried the Brampton Warriors to the semi-finals of the Super Showcase tournament in Orlando, with a game-high 22 points in the loss to Florida 60-55.
The last time we saw Aromoloran, he was in the midst of an OFSAA run with Kedar Wright, Andrew Anderson and the Campion Bears, where they fell short in the quarter-finals.
In this environment however, Aromoloran was a different player in that he could get to any spot on the floor and finish with consistency; his confidence has escalated and it was crucial to Brampton’s success. Aromoloran will be at Laurentian in September where he is expected to provide coach Shawn Swords with immediate production.
As usual, Marcus Lewis brought his strong motor to the tournament and filled the stat sheet; scoring, rebounding, defending, simply put he did it all.
We are expecting a strong upcoming 2013-2014 high school season at 22 FT. Academy, as he will now be taking the lead, as opposed to his long time role player duties.
The Brampton Warriors went 5-1 at the AAU Super Showcase thanks to the aforementioned players in addition to strong contributions from Kaleel Cassius Faiz, who was the designated sniper, hitting timely three-point shots in each game to secure victories.
Tristan Coley Adeolu Agunye, Brandon Goin-Bailey were tough inside and defended well, while Lamar Joseph provided a spark of the bench at the PG spot.
“We have to be solid defensively, it’s that simple,” said Brampton Head Coach Mark Ennis, who had his boys prepared for every game.
This team has been underestimated before, and took the Pitt Jam Fest Championship (open division) back in April. Once again, they surprised their opponents defeating some solid teams in New Jersey Roadrunners and Maryland 3D.
The Brampton Warriors were well represented in Orlando.
