The inaugural Vantage Hoops Holiday Classic tips off this Saturday, December 19th at Woodbridge High School, with five quality high school matchups all within the state of Virginia. Vantage Hoops will preview each game before the event tips off this weekend.
Middleburg Academy will take on the host Woodbridge in the nightcap of the inaugural Vantage Hoops Holiday Classic at 7:30 p.m.
Woodbridge is in the middle of building its team chemistry. After starting 2-4, Woodbridge features a new look with multiple transfers coming in. The Vikings are led by 6’4’’ wing Ibrahim Kamara, who is posting 15 points and nine rebounds per game. The senior is an athletic, versatile wing guard who is great in transition, finishing above the rim and defending multiple positions. Kamara has improved his ball skills and is now comfortable creating for himself and others.
Senior guard Cam Robinson leads the team in scoring, scoring 17.6 points per game, including a 31 point outing against Stonewall Jackson. Robinson is a good sized guard who can fill it up from deep.
Taylor Breltic runs the show for Woodbridge at the point. The senior floor general averages 10 points and six assists per contest. Breltic is a pesky defender with a high IQ that is constantly looking to get others involved.
Middleburg Academy enters the event with a 5-1 record, falling in a close game to Saint Stephens Saint Agnes. The reigning VISSA Division III State Champions, have moved up to Division II and already secured quality wins over the likes of Millwood and Virginia Academy.
Playing without returning State Player of the Year, Andrew Corum, who is out with a foot injury, Middleburg has found a way to start off strong this season. The Dragons are led by senior guard AJ Robinson. Robinson enters the event averaging 16 points and four assists per game. The experienced floor general loves to operate at the top of the key and stretches the defense with is ability to shoot it off the catch or off the dribble.
Myles Lewis is posting 15 points and six boards a game. The senior is a big guard, standing at 6’4’’ who plays with a high energy on both ends of the floor. Lewis is athletic, can guard multiple spots, help on the backboard and play in the high post. Overall, he is a very productive player.
Aygei Edwards rounds out a three headed attack for Middleburg, posting 14 points a game. Edwards is a strong and athletic guard who uses his speed to get in the paint and create plays for himself and teammates. The senior guard is also a tenacious on the ball defender. Look out for 6’4″ junior wing Chris Lomax, who transferred from Fork Union. He could potentially make a big two-way impact on this game.
The nightcap should make for a fun affair, with both teams playing an aggressive, uptempo style with multiple college prospects on both sides of the floor!
