With his future head coach looking on, Ward showed his total skill set and impressive ability to dominate on the low block. For the game Ward finished 17 points and 8 rebounds. Most impressive was that Ward accomplished those 17 points on only 8 field goal attempts. Using his strength and nimble footwork, Ward was able to get to the foul line 15 times, and at different points in the game was totally dominant. What really stands out with Ward is his impressive hands and excellent touch around the rim. There aren’t many high school players who really understand how to score with their back to the basket, but Ward is one of them who does. Once he gets into ideal shape in a college weight program, it is scary to think of how productive he can be.
