Blair Academy Forward Plays With Panthers

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a story on a player from Blair Academy ...

Coming off the Michael Jordan regional All Star game held at Madison Square Garden, it was evident that Alexis Wangmere was a player to watch over the next month in the IS8 Spring League.

Wangmere, 6-foot-8 and 230 pounds, is considered a power forward for the college level. Wangmere has already given a commitment to the Texas Longhorns.

Alexis competed last weekend with the New York Panthers AAU program. He played alongside Trevon Wilcher, another quality forward who will play at Massachusetts next season.

Wangmere didn't have the opportunity to shoot the ball much in the game the reporters from this website watched recently. However, he did show he has the ability to score around the rim. He also displayed this ability in the Jordan All Star game.

Wangmere scored 21 points on 10 of 11 shooting from the field. He also picked up 10 rebounds and finished with 24 points. He was one of the best players on the court in that game.

Another impressive part about Wangmere was he worked very hard on the defensive end of his individual game. He rebounded, deflected some entry passes into the low post, and took a couple of charging fouls.

So Wangmere came to play. He will need to bring this effort and intensity to play for the Texas basketball program. This is one of the better hoop programs in the country.

Wangmere has the size. We'll continue to report on Wangmere's efforts at IS8 on this website.
