HYATTSVILLE, Md. -- Trevon Duval made a statement on Saturday: He’s the best guard in high school basketball.
Part of it was the 17 points Duval scored in IMG Academy’s 86-69 win, part of it was the nine assists he dished out.
But what really got the gym buzzing was his dunk over big man Michael Marsh from Gary Collegiate (South Carolina).
“It was crazy,” Duval said after the game. “I knew I was going to dunk it, but I didn’t think anyone was going to step up. It was crazy.”
And the posturing after the dunk?
“I didn’t say anything, just gave him a little staredown,” Duval said.
Duval, a 6-foot-3 guard from Delaware, is the No. 1-ranked guard in the 2017 class and the No. 5 overall prospect in the ESPN 100. He’s currently uncommitted, with a final five of Arizona, Baylor, Duke, Kansas and Seton Hall.
