NYC Guard Impressive In All Star Game

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a free, detailed look at the individual game of talented guard prospect Michael Alvarado, who had a very impressive game last weekend in New York City ...

Mike Alvarado, a 6-foot-2 backcourt prospect from All Hallows High School in the Bronx, New York, is certainly going to make an impact playing division one basketball for Manhattan College.

Alvarado, who showcased his skill level last weekend in the Jordan Brand Classic local all-star game held at Madison Square Garden, produced 14 points on six of six from the floor. He also recorded two assists in 13 minutes of playing time.

Alvarado's effort was impressive, and showing why he is likely to be an impact player for Manhattan College over the next four years. EVALUATION OF MICHAEL ALVARADO'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

His play has always improved year over year. Michael possesses a nice feel for the game, does a good job with making decisions with the basketball, and can help his team win a game in many ways.

Alvardo plays hard on both sides of the ball too. He should be able to help the Manhattan basketball program as a freshman too as he played for a high school program that demands hard play both defensively and offensively.
