New Jersey Points Producer Receives Honor

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a free look at the individual game and future of division one bound prospect Khalid Lewis, who is coming off a tremendous season ...

Khalid Lewis, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound combo guard from Trenton Catholic Academy in Hamilton, New Jersey (previously McCorristin Catholic H.S.), had a very good senior season and was recently honored.

Lewis will put those shooting skills on display this evening when he competes in the Mary Kline Memorial All Star game, held in memory of Alex Kline's mother, who passed away so young from cancer. All proceeds will go to the Mary Kline fund.

The game will be held at The Pennington School in New Jersey and a slam dunk contest will precede the all star event at 6 p.m. this evening.

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

Khalid, committed to Delaware, should be a very good player on the division one level. He has worked hard over the past few years to make marked improvements on both sides of the ball. He is going to be a valuable player over the next four college basketball seasons at Delaware starting next fall.

Khalid is an exciting player to watch. He's able to produce points from anywhere on the court. Over the past year and especially during this past summer, he's made strides in the categories of defense and ballhandling.

He has the skill level to be an impact player for Delaware over a four-year period. He has the skill level and grit to plow to the basket and score.

Khalid shows the ability to produce points from many points on the floor. He has the ability to take the ball to the rim and score consistently as well as drop down jumpers.

PREVIOUS RECRUITING INTEREST:

Temple, Drexel, Richmond, Virginia Tech, Fairfield, St. Joe's, Rider, Siena, and Marist.

TEAM NJABC HEAD COACH MATT PAULS' THOUGHTS ON KHALID'S INDIVIDUAL BASKETBALL GAME:

His perimeter game continues to improve. He has a great first step and can destroy the interior of a defense with his drives to the rim.
