The National Hoopfest returned after a year hiatus at DeMatha High School in Maryland, bringing some of the top talent from around the DMV and the country together for one of the top events in the country. There were teams from the DMV as well as PA, WV, OH, AZ, NY and NJ in attendance.

Here’s a look at part two of the 2022 standouts from teams in the DMV.

The Xavier commit is going to be who makes the Stags go all year, and in their first day win against Westfield he was the best player on the court. At 6’6” Ward is able to do everything on the court as he can handle and initiate offense, he’s improved as a shot maker and can finish above the rim and he brings it on the defensive end and on the glass as well. He finished the game with 23 points and 7 rebounds leading his team to the win.
