ScoutTV: Flying Through the Air

LANSING – Doug Anderson certainly has the athleticism to play D1 basketball.

The dunking maniac starred at the AAU's Motown Showdown last weekend, putting on a high-flying aerial display and taking home the tournament MVP after scoring 26 in the championship game against the Detroit Fire.

"(He's) pretty easy (to coach) because you just throw the ball up and he goes and gets it," Anderson's 17U Michigan Mustangs coach Rod Watts said after the victory.

"He's a very coachable kid. He's athletic – he has some things to work on and that's what (he's) hoping to do," Watts said.

But does he have a complete enough of a game to attract the attention of the big boys?

"We're hoping to help him get better," Watts said, "so he can help his team at Kalamazoo Central next year and help him improve in his game so he can play at the next level."

If you get the chance, see Anderson in person. Until then …
