Perhaps one of Washington’s more underrated sophomores, 6-foot guard Kieran Kershaw is hoping to help put himself on the map in 2018.

We recently caught up with the young, prolific LaSalle scorer, and he says getting buckets is the strongest part of his game.

“I think my best strength is just all-around scoring, and I like to get my teammates involved, also,” said Kershaw.  

“I think my court-vision and seeing everyone on the court and how the game’s going is something I’m good at. And I’m continuing to work on my passing and shooting.”

As a sophomore at LaSalle, he averaged 22.4 points, six rebounds and five assists per game. It was his second season as a starter for the Lightning.

“We lost four senior starters last season, and I was the fifth starter as a freshman. So, coming into this year, we had a lot of young guys and I had to step up and be a leader on the team,” said Kershaw.

Now, he’ll take the momentum of his sophomore season into what could be a big 16U offseason. Kershaw says he’ll again play with local travel team, High Definition.

“We’ll travel around and it’s a bunch of local guys that I’ve been playing with since fourth-grade, so we have a good connection and enjoy playing together,” he said.

Kershaw’s goals are simple: he wants to see his recruitment start to take shape.

“I haven’t talked to many coaches yet, so my goals are to talk to some and get to know some. My goal is to play at the next level, but I haven’t gotten noticed much,” he said.

“So, my goal is to get noticed more, and to just get my name out there.”
