Atson helps himself with big weekend
There were a host of players that helped their stock at the National Prep Showcase this past weekend. But Travis Atson, a 6-foot-4 guard out of South Kent (Conn.) School, may have been the guy that helped himself the most. In two games, Atson filled the stat sheet, but especially in the scoring department. His best performance was a 31-point outing on 12-for-20 shooting in a win over Vermont Academy. An attacking guard, Atson was relentless with his drives to the rim. He’s an impressive athlete that is fearless when he drives. He had the dunk of the weekend when he rose up on a 6-foot-10 defender and put him in the rim. While he isn’t known for his shooting, Atson certainly proved he could make shots. He connected on one three on Sunday and a pair on Saturday. He also worked in multiple mid-range pull-ups and floaters. “When I’m rolling, I’m doing everything – shooting and attacking the basket,” Atson told Scout. “I love scoring. I try to do everything to score. Defensively I try and get a lot of steals.” Atson’s play this past weekend helped him off the court. DePaul, Duquesne and Towson all offered him a scholarship following his play at the National Prep Showcase. Prior to that, he had offers from St. Bonaventure, Fordham, Quinnipiac, UCSB, UT-Arlington, Iona, Boston and Binghamton. To go with the offers, Atson also has interest from Boston College, East Carolina, Florida, Louisville, Tulsa, Tulsa, UMass and UNLV.
