Ascenders At A Glance

This year’s City of Palms Classic Classic marks a Homecoming of sorts for former Lehigh star 6-7 JR Emmitt Williams, who finally will be on display on his hometown’s biggest stage after averaging 16.4 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.9 blocks as an IMG sophomore. But under head coach Vince Walden, these Ascenders are stocked with the most talent they’ve ever had. On Sept. 11, the nation’s premier point guard recruit, 6-3 SR Trevon Duval, who averaged 17 points and 7 assists last winter at Advanced Prep (Texas), announced that he is transferring south: http://usatodayhss.com/2016/trevon-duval-nations-no-1-point-guard-to-play-at-img-academy-fla Two more high-profile arrivals to keep an eye on: strong, chiseled 6-8 JR forward Silvio DeSousa, who transferred from Montverde Academy, and backboard-shattering 6-8 SR Isaiah Stokes, who gave up a promising football future (the once 310-pound offensive tackle at Memphis Lausanne has shed more than 50 pounds) to pursue his hoop dreams. … Duval led WE-R1 (Del.) to the Under Armour Association travel championship, becoming the first player ever to win Nike Peach Jam and UAA titles in successive summers, was the co-MVP of the Elite 24 game and the MVP at the Pangos All-American Camp.
