As his junior season wears on, Cumberland Christian point guard Myson Lowe continues to make a lot of noise with his play.
The 5-foot-9 floor general is averaging 20 points through 12 games this season, including a 39-point outburst early in the season. It’s his ability to be a playmaker that’s made him so dynamic this season.
“My strength on the court is my scoring ability and the energy I bring to the court. I’m a point guard that can facilitate and get a bucket when it’s needed,” said Lowe, who mentioned what he’s working to improve.
“I need to improve my decision-making on offense and get guys open more with penetrating and kicking. And of course, I can always work on my shot and my handles more.”
Last season, Lowe played at North Cobb Christian as a sophomore, now he’s at Cumberland Christian. They’re 8-4 so far thanks in large part to Lowe’s big scoring.
“They already had a point guard, so I’ve been playing a lot more of the two guard this season,” said Lowe.
“It’s been going really smooth, I had a breakout game early in the season and put my name on the map in the state of Georgia.”
He scored 39 points in that game against New Creation, showing off his clutch gene in the process. Lowe had the game-tying 3-ball, and hit some key free-throws down the stretch.
Moving forward, Lowe says the goal is to put Cumberland Christian on people’s radar.
“People look at us like we’re just a small school, pushover, so I just want to put our team name on the map and prove that we can play with anybody,” said Lowe. “And then to win a state championship in the league we’re in.”
He’s also hoping to see some more college recruitment come his way. Lowe played with Game Elite 16U last spring and summer, he says Alcorn State and Georgia State have shown some early interest in him. He’ll decide what grassroots team he’ll play with later this winter.
