Beach Ball Classic Profile: Lashay Page

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Lashay Page's first game of the Beach Ball Classic certainly isn't one he'll want to remember. Although the Latta (SC) High standout put up 31 points he went 12 of 28 from the field and lost by more than 40 points.

"I played good but I feel I could have done more things for my team like get more people involved. It was just the flow of the game."

Majority of his shots were off the dribble jumpers behind the three point line. Granted Page has a very nice looking stroke, he forced a lot of shots and went one on one a little too much against Arlington Country Day.

The Vikings were clearly outmatched against the Apaches, as the 31 point effort from Page wasn't nearly enough to keep up with ACD. The final score was 102 - 60.

"They had some athletes and we got tired," Page said after the game. "We couldn't get any boards, but we are going to keep playing and continue to work hard and maybe good things will happen."

The 6-2, 170-pound WG went 5 of 15 from three and did show the ability to get a shot when he wants - it's just not always a good look. All that aside Page has potential and a good looking jumper.

Over the summer Page had solid performances at Nike camp and Peach Jam and that led to interest from high major schools. He said he's heard from South Carolina, Clemson, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Georgetown and Wake Forest.

Page listed South Carolina, Clemson and Wake Forest as his top three and claims scholarship offers from all three.

"I like them. I feel like those programs are very strong academically and I liked what they were talking about."

He cited style of play and academics as the two main factors in his recruitment.

Page returns to action at the Beach Ball Classic on Thursday at 1:45 against the loser of the Scott County (KY) vs Socastee (SC) game.
