Blue Devils Take Summer Tip-Off
The D.C. Blue Devils spent the opening week of the July evaluation period in the state of Pennsylvania, beginning at the Hoop Group Elite Camp and then heading to the Summer Tip-Off tournament where they earned the championship in the seventeen-and-under "Nook" bracket.
The Blue Devils opened with a win over Team Blaze from Maryland after receiving an opening round bye and then knocked off House of Hoops in an overtime game in the quarterfinals behind 21 points from Eamon Joyce. A win over Positive Image sent them to the final where they knocked off Vanier Prep from Canada.
Rising junior point guard Caleb Green was named the tournament's MVP in the "Nook" bracket but it was incoming Kimball Union post-graduate Nathan Knight that turned heads with college coaches - earning 8 division I scholarship offers last week alone.
The upstate New York native now holds offers from Robert Morris, James Madison, Drexel, Stony Brook, UMBC, Lafayette, American, Central Connecticut and Canisius, but he wasn't the only Blue Devils to land new offers.
Tshiefu Ngalakulondi, a rising junior forward from Proctor Academy, also landed his first division I offer when James Madison came calling this weekend as well.
In other news, Geo Baker announced that he would be transferring into Proctor Academy next year where he'll join current Blue Devil teammates Ngalakulondi and Green, not to mention Julian Roche, who is out for the summer with a torn ACL, but is also expected to reclassify to 2017.
