Braeden Nowlin is keeping the faith. The steady 5-foot-7, 150-pound point guard from Dayton High School is hoping to compete at the college level but it’s just a matter of getting the chance. Nowlin is banking on his senior season to help give him that opportunity, building on an off-season with Oregon Basketball Club and high-level AAU basketball.

“I feel like I definitely got better throughout the summer,” said Nowlin. “As a team our tournament record wasn’t so great but it was a definitely a good experience playing with all the guys and I definitely think I improved. I feel like I got a lot better in communicating and leading.”

Nowlin can definitely shoot the ball and in one upset win over the Rose City Rebels in Salem, he knocked down five threes. He isn’t in any active communication with any college coaches, but remains open to all levels of play. His hope is that a big senior season with a team capable of bringing it all home will give him the chance.

“I think we’re going to be really good and we will be definitely competing for a title,” Nowlin said. “An individual goal for me would be league player of the year.”

Nowlin ranks as the #57 player in the PrepHoops Oregon Class of 2019 rankings.
