Last season, Hammond averaged 11.4 points per game at Cherry Creek, ranking third behind two seniors who have now graduated. The junior combo guard is too quick for most defenders, where he can use a simple jab or cross to create plenty of separation.

He was also the only non-senior on Cherry Creek that averaged over 10 points per game, keeping tabs on offensive usage will be fascinating.
