B’Angelo Anderson is a sophomore at Valley High School in Louisville, where he suited up as a shooting guard. He may be young, but he has plenty of sauce.
Anderson was playing out of position, running the point in a spring league game when he found himself being defended straight up. As he backed up to get a clear one-on-one face off, the sophomore picked up his dribble and bounced the ball directly off his defender’s face.
It was a lightning quick move that was truly humiliating, as it was guaranteed to be; if it worked, it would be embarrassing for the defender. If it didn’t, Anderson never would have lived it down.
It worked, and Anderson had himself a spotlight play for the career highlight reel.
As a sophomore, B’Angelo is still feeling out the recruiting process, and it will be interesting to see if his ball handling and one-on-one skills translate to a higher level of competition.
For now, we can all hope we get more showboating, whether they come in Valley or AAU games.
