Iverson & Lewis Return to CT this Weekend

For the last three years Kuran Iverson has been one of New England’s top prospects.  He was already a well known name by the time he first arrived at Northwest Catholic High School as a freshman.  During his sophomore year he was one of the brightest prospects in the country, and as a senior he starred in the New England Elite 75 Showcase before shooting his way up the national rankings.  

This summer, Iverson announced that he would be transferring to Fishburne Military School in Virginia for his senior year.  Since arriving, the six-foot-nine swingman has made a verbal commitment to Memphis and is expected to sign his National Letter of Intent during the upcoming early signing period.  

Fishburne Military School has another familiar name on their roster in Zach Lewis, who is spending a post-grad year at the school following his graduation from Northwest Catholic last year.  The six-foot-three guard saw his recruitment jump up during his final two years in New England, before committing to Hofstra as a senior.  Lewis has since re-opened his commitment and has been one of the most pleasant surprises on Fishburne’s roster according to head coach Ed Huckaby.  

Iverson and Lewis will lead Fishburne this weekend when they return to the National Prep Showcase.  They’ll open up on Friday night with a match-up against the defending NEPSAC AAA champions, Northfield Mount Hermon at 5:15pm, and then return to the court Saturday at 11:15am to take on perennial prep powerhouse St. Thomas More.  

The weekend will be an important one for both Iverson and Lewis.  For Iverson, this will be perhaps his last and best opportunity to impress voters for the McDonald’s All-American game, many of whom are expected to be in attendance again this year.  

As for Lewis, he also stands to gain quite a bit as he’s proven his ability to play some point guard since arriving in Virginia, and has seen recruiting interest all the way up to the Atlantic 10 as a result.  As one of the top available guards in the class of 2013, his homecoming could prove to be a big opportunity.
