After a dominating performance against Julius Randle and the Texas Titans at the EYBL championships, Andrew Wiggins along with some media outlets called him the best high school prospect regardless of class. Now fast forward two weeks and insert Noah Vonleh. Vonleh along with Mass Rivals AAU teammate Kaleb Joseph made traveled to Long Beach, CA, to participate in the Adidas Nations Invitational.
Vonleh was playing like a man on a mission everytime he took the court. The 6’8 combo forward averaged 19.3Ppg to go along with 11Rpg throughout the camp. If those numbers don’t jump out and scream star potential then i don’t know what will.
Noah Vonleh is a key reason to why the talent in New England is so special and rates as one of the best regions to find talent in the nation. Vonlehs best performannce came in the title game when USA 2014 Red defeated USA 2013 Blue in a overtime victory, 86-84. Vonleh did not start the game off so hot in the 1st half missing a number of baskets but continued to build his confidence by attacking the basket and getting good looks. In the 2nd half Vonleh turned in one his best performances on a national stage. Vonleh was completely unguardable, creating shots for his teammates, and grabbing every rebound that came off the glass. The biggest play of the night was when when Vonleh pulled up to the 3 point line with 3 tics left on the clock and knocked down the long range bomb to put his team up 2. Vonleh finished with 25pts and 16reb in the hard fought contest.
Noah Vonleh is ranked as our class of 2014 #1 prospect in New England but we feel like he’s made his case for #1 in country or atleast a close 2nd.
