In a recent Twitter poll (open to players, fans, and coaches) EEVP’s senior point guard David DeJulius was chosen as December’s Player of the Month. He finished with just short of half the votes, ending at 49%. Lamar Norman, a senior guard from Godwin Heights, finished second notching 36% of the vote. Brandon Johns, a senior forward from East Lansing, rounded out the vote with 15%.
Brandon Johns has had a great start to the 2017-2018. His season thus far has been highlighted by a career high 51 point performance against Sexton. Johns is averaging a double-double and has shown huge improvements in his interior performance and is running the floor better than ever in his senior season. The Michigan commit has put himself squarely in the race for Mr. Basketball.
Lamar Norman was electrifying in December. He averaged 28 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 assists. Norman is a scorer and he can do it at all three levels. He has been particularly potent from the three point line this season. Norman has shown great court vision while running the floor as well. He is one of the top uncommitted players in Michigan and is in the running for Mr. Basketball.
David DeJulius was voted the Player of the Month in December. The University of Michigan commit was fantastic to say the least. His month was highlighted by his performance against top ranked Clarkston. EEVP came in as an underdog, and found themselves trailing 49-31 at the half and losing by 22 in the 3rd quarter. Then the David DeJulius show began. He scored 17 points in the first 5 minutes of the 4th quarter, leading EEVP to a 80-71 victory over defending the state champions. DeJulius lit up the scoreboard with 42 points. The prolific guard has been getting it done in multiple fashions. He’s been efficient from behind the arc and has been staggering with his ability to get to the rim. David DeJulius has finished at the basket and found teammates to dish to off the dribble drive. He has been equally as effective with his perimeter passing. DeJulius has found teammates cutting to the basket and has swung the ball to open shooters. He has led EEVP to a 4-2 start.
”December was great for us. We met adversity and pushed through it as a team and me personally, stating that my first day back from a 3 week quad strain was December 1, right before the passing of my Nana, I’ve had to get my mental and physical back on a fly.” – David DeJulius
