Peach Jam: Kevin Marfo

NORTH AUGUSTA, SC - BABC is one of the hottest teams in the EYBL, and Kevin Marfo proved to be very valuable on Thursday.

A player who seemed to emerge on Thursday was Kevin Marfo. Running with BABC, Marfo was instrumental in his team going 2-0, especially in a morning game against the New York Lightning. The 6-foot-8 Marfo was excellent on the low block and also controlled the glass.

While his numbers of 12 points and 7 rebounds won’t blow you away, it was such an efficient effort from Marfo. He battled foul trouble in the first half, but was excellent in the second half and was a steady force on the low block and the back end of the BABC 1-3-1 zone defense.

What is most impressive about Marfo is his hands, nice touch, and good instincts on the glass. Right now he isn’t the most explosive kid and he isn’t a gazelle running the court, but he plays well with his back to the basket and catches everything near him.

Recruiting wise Marfo has taken recent visits to Rhode Island and Providence, and says he would also like to make a trip to St. Joe’s.
