Kevin Ware making strides

While waiting for the "All-Metro Sports Georgia Showcase" to get underway I was able to catch a few games from a fall high school recreation league that had a surprisingly good number of prospects in attendance. One player that I was excited to watch was Tennessee bound shooting guard Kevin Ware (Conyers, Ga./ Rockdale Co) who has seen his recruiting ranking fluctuate. This past spring and summer he seemed to struggle to find a good rhythm and looked uncomfortable while spending a good amount of time playing the point guard position. In fact he looked hesitant and unconfident much of the time, while running the point which are both uncharacteristic of the high-level athlete's game. However, after watching Ware this past weekend it is obvious that the summer experiment has paid off. Playing more like a combo-guard, Ware unselfishly dominated the game while making plays for his teammates off the dribble. His decision making was confident and crisp choosing to pass or pull up for the jumper and he still excels in the open floor attacking the basket.
