Pope, a 5-foot-10, 156-pound shooting guard/point guard from Iona (N.Y.) Prep, produced many productive games for his high school team.
*Pope scored 18 points with four 3-pointers in an 82-57 win over St. John the Baptist in the CHSAA 'A' state final at Fordham University on Saturday. Iona advanced to Glens Falls to play the Public Schools 'A' champion.
PREVIOUS EVALUATION OF ANDRE POPE'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:
"When he's shooting the ball like he was (Saturday), he brings our team to another level," said Iona Prep coach Vic Quirolo, "He played great 'D', drew charges. Offensively, he made big shots."
"I'm a shooter," said Pope. "And (Quirolo) wants me to play hustle defense, get loose balls, get rebounds. I'm a high-riser, so I go to the rim and rebound."
