Andrew Nembhard Takeover at FHC Early Bird
We’re all set on the final day of the Father Henry Carr Early Bird with teams that are stacked with high level talent that has been providing fans with down to the wire games and highlight reel moves.
Thornlea will go up against St. Edmund Campion in the first semi-final Toronto schools, Eastern Commerce and a loaded St. Mike’s team will play in the other semi (Schedule below).
The underclassmen talent has really set the precedent for what the season will look like moving forward. Does the name Andrew Nembhard ring a bell?
Or perhaps Danilo Djuricic? Joel Brown?
The list goes on…
Highlights will follow after the tournament to give you a visual of exactly what is being referred to as the next big wave of Canadian basketball talent.
Last night Andrew Nembhard put on a passing and ball handling clinic showing a very high skill set at the starting point guard position.
As a ninth grader, the Vaughan Voyageurs will look to Nembhard to set the tone of the offense and run the show this year.
