Lomomba starts off strong

Madison (WI) wing Junior Lomomba has a host of scholarship offers to pick from after an impressive spring on the AAU circuit.

This year in the Nike EYBL not a ton was expected out of The Family. The Detroit based team however proved to exceed expectations by qualifying for the Peach Jam, and a big reason for that was the play of Junior Lomomba.

At 6-foot-4 and close to 200 pounds, Lomomba is the type of versatile power wing that many college coaches covet. He has put that combination of strength and skill on display quite a bit during the spring AAU season.

"I think I have been doing alright," said Lomomba of his play. "I am just getting better and doing my thing. My team is playing well and we keep on getting better."

One reason why Lomomba has showed so well for himself has been because of the improvements he has made in the gym over the past year.

"I have spent a lot of time in the gym working on my overall game, but especially my perimeter skills," said Lomomba. "I have been working on my shooting off the dribble and just learning how to be a combo guard."

College coaches are definitely taking notice. Lomomba is hearing from numerous high major schools and seems to be one of the more talked about wings in the Midwest.

"I am hearing the most from West Virginia, Cincinnati, New Mexico State, Nevada, Minnesota, Washington State, and Baylor," listed Lomomba.

At the moment Lomomba hasn't had a chance to narrow things down, but he is hoping to do that before too long.

"At this point I don't have a top five or anything, but I am thinking of trimming my list by the end of the summer, and hopefully making my decision by November," explained Lomomba about where he stands in the process.

When the time does come for him to make a choice, Lomomba knows what he will be looking for in a school.

"I am looking for a school where I can contribute right away and a place where I will have a chance to compete for an NCAA championship," said Lomomba.

For the three-star wing it has been an excellent start to his AAU year, and he will try to keep it going once the coaches are allowed back on the road in July.
