In anticipation of the upcoming high school season, we will be taking a closer look at various teams and players throughout the DC Metro Area. In this edition we highlight point guards who could find themselves among the top assist men in the area this season.

EVAN BUCKLEY | STONE BRIDGE

Evan Buckley is not just one of the most experienced point guards you will find in the DMV, but one of the most reliable and efficient. Buckley prioritizes ball security while setting the table for others, but also keeping defenders off balance with his scoring ability.

JASON GIBSON | SIDWELL FRIENDS ’19

Jason Gibson

Jason Gibson is entering year two as the full-time starting PG for Sidwell HC Eric Singletary. We expect Gibson to show improved confidence in being able to make smart decisions quickly and minimize turnovers while keeping his productivity level high.

JORDAN HAIRSTON | FLINT HILL ’19

Jordan Hairston

Playing alongside a big man like Qudus Wahab should only help Jordan Hairston, as he will know how and when to find him. Hairston is an instinctive playmaker who understands angles, change of pace, and timing.

CAMERON SAVAGE | SOUTH LAKES ’19

Cameron Savage

Cameron Savage will be asked to create on both ends of the floor with his speed, hustle, and feel for the game. Savage is a proven clutch performer, and has built a solid resume in his time at South Lakes.

AYAN TEEL | BISHOP O’CONNELL ’19

Ayan Teel

Ayan Teel has the potential to hand out as many dimes as any point guard not just in the WCAC, but in the entire DMV. Teel is a heady floor general who can get anywhere he wants to on the floor by utilizing his blend of elite ball handling ability and superior quickness.

HERU BLIGEN | ST. ANDREW’S ’19

Heru Bligen

Heru Bligen plays with a motor and intensity level unlike most at the high school level. On a given night, he could go for double digit points, rebounds, or assists.
