November 19, 2013 - All hail the champs, National Christian (MD), who took home DMV Elite/94 Feet Basketball's Fall League's 'chip. Given the vast majority of this league's games took place on its home court, NCA held fort so to speak. Capital Christian (MD) couldn't quite get it done.

See DMVElite.com for all league game outcomes. Following is a discussion of some key participants.

Sylvester Ogbonda - 6'10", 227 pound junior center, National Christian (MD) - When you think of Ogbonda, think of an old school big man, one that accepts center duties, like rim running, rebounding, defending, blocking shots and scoring in the paint.

Cincinnati and LaSalle like what they see in the native of Nigeria, having tendered scholarship offers to him. Rutgers, UVA, Clemson, Georgetown, George Mason and Minnesota have expressed various levels of interest.

Fred Rowles - 6'4", 195 pound sophomore wing, National Christian (MD) - A solid passer and creator who drives and finishes, Rowles also will knock down the open jumper, rebound and run the floor. Rowles, in his first year at NCA, knows that increased ball handling skill and general explosion are necessary for his development.

GW and Radford have expressed interest in Rowles, a player that according to a fall league official improved the most of all players, and in doing so was a possible MVP candidate.


Chris Lawson, head of DMVElite.com , 94 Feet Basketball's director Brian Inge, along with DMVElite's Marcus Helton and Mike White, and all else involved put on a professionally run fall league, one that not only allowed high schoolers an opportunity to improve on the court, but garner exposure as well. Hats off to those guys.

Though NCA still was not efficient versus full court ball pressure, they did seem to improve in handling it. How? By running teammates away from the ball handler in full court action, thereby removing the opportunity for traps. They also got rid of the rock fast in the open floor, got stops so Capital Christian couldn't set their defense, and burned CC by pounding the ball inside after maintaining poise, which discouraged pressing/trapping.
