Cambridge-Isanti has state tournament aspirations with its best team in more than a decade. Henry Abraham is the engine in that excitement.
Abraham, a 5-foot-10 junior guard, averaged better than 20 points per game as a sophomore for the 18-win Bluejackets. He’s joined by a solid core of returners in what should be a fun winter in Mississippi 8 Conference. Abraham has high expectations for his outfit.
“I expect us to win the conference and section,” said Abraham. “I think 20 wins or better is possible and we’re not about settling there. We want to win games at state.”
Abraham’s one of the most dynamic scorers in the state and has been a top-notch player in a solid conference for a few years already. That he’s only entering his upperclass seasons comes to the delight of his coaches and the shagrin of opposing teams.
He’s one of the best shooters in the area and while he doesn’t have great size, he’s explosive with the ball and very good at creating space to get shots off against taller defenders. He’s always a threat to score from anywhere on the floor.
“I’m known for shooting but I can see the court well and my passing and dribbling are strengths too,” Abraham said. “I’m working on finishing better.”
Abraham’s got two more years of high school hoops left but he’s already garnering quite a bit of interest at the Division I and II level.
“I’ve received letters from Davidson, Ohio, UMD, Winona State, Wisconsin-Green Bay and Lehigh,” Abraham said. “I’m hoping to go to the best college possible to play.”
