Clear Creek-Amana sophomore Christian Withrow enjoyed a breakout sophomore season with the Clippers, and he’s hoping to carry that momentum into a 16U season that’s right around the corner.
Withrow, a 6-foot-2 wing, defines himself as a versatile threat. One with an ability score inside and from a mid-range.
“I’m pretty good at driving the the rim and finishing through contact, that’s a pretty big part of my game. And I also have a pretty good mid-range shot, and that’s handy because it makes players have to stay on the edge when they guard me,” said Withrow.
As a sophomore with CC-A, Withrow was a starter for much of the season. He averaged 11.4 points on 54 percent shooting, also 4.2 rebounds per game.
“Towards the beginning of the season I was starting because Nolan Schwarting was hurt, and I was a little bit nervous. But I went out and played pretty well, and had 17 points in my first game; so that got me going for the rest of the season,” said Withrow.
He’s now on the verge of starting a grassroots season with Iowa Dynasty 16U, a program he’s played with prior. Withrow is looking to take his game to new heights, and to take his team to new heights in the process.
“I’m mainly just focusing finishing through contact and then working on my 3-point shot a lot more,” said Withrow.
“And for Dynasty, we’ve got the same team we’ve had for a while now, but we’ve never really taken that next step as a team to winning some really big tournaments, so the main thing I want to do is help get my team to that next level.”
