The New Orleans Wolves, led by Rory Poplion, have steadily put players into the college ranks over the past few years and are consistently a tough match-up for all teams, circuit teams included. They travel well and provide exposure for a great number of student athletes and this season is no different. 2018 G Glenn Grover played well in the Spring and recently signed with Southeastern Baptist College.

New Orleans Wolves have already won one event at the Spring Hoopfests after a 5-0 weekend then finished 4-1 at GASO with a loss in the Elite 8 by 1 point. They will be playing in The Tune Up in Baton Rouge on July 7th and 8th and already have a trip out west for the Las Vegas Classic planned for July 25th to July 29th. The rest of the July schedule is to be determined.

ROSTER

Dajour Lloyd (5’11 PG, West Jeff, 2019) – Lloyd has been a member of this 17u squad for a few years now and has made a name for himself with his ability to get wherever he wants on the court. Had 25 points in the Semi’s of the Spring Hoopfests and scored a game winning lay-up in GASO.

Isaiah Bigham (6’2 G, Riverside Academy, 2019) – Bigham is a legit scoring threat for the Wolves and will have to step up for a Riverside squad that loses a lot. Started GASO off with back to back games of 27 then 25 points.

Alonge McClain (6’6 F/C, Hahnville, 2018) – The big man in the middle has shown flashes including the ability to step out at times. Coming off a nice season with his HS, he will be looking for a school after July. Has good hands and a touch around the rim.

Brandon Davis (6’0 G, East St. John, 2019) – Davis scored 25 points in the championship game of the Spring Hoopfests tournament. He’s looking forward to a big July.

Jason Allen Jr. (5’11 G, Warren Easton, 2019), Eric Brignac (6’1 F, West Jeff, 2019), Devin Edwards (6’2 G, Destrehan, 2018), Darius Day (6’2 G, Warren Easton, 2019)
