We present more standout fall league performers.


November 6, 2013 - The DMV Elite/94 Feet Fall League's quarterfinal playoffs offered observers a prime example to witness more talented high school performers.

Following are some. For scores, see DMVElite.com. .

Chris Baez - 6'3", 190 pound senior guard/forward, Chavez (DC) - A player that's rough and tumble, defends and can score. Abilene Christian is coming on strong for Baez, who has also received interest from Morgan State, Albany, Quinnipiac and Liberty.

They see a competitor that does whatever is necessary to win, including rebound and compete against larger players inside, while muscling smaller ones. They also scout a guy that has been and continues to work on ball handling and shooting.

Chris Baez does many good things on the court.

Dominique Espeleta - 5'10", 160 pound junior point guard, Westlake (MD) - He's not a good shooter, must get stronger and work on his left hand, but Espeleta still makes a difference on the court; he's an excellent floor general that delivers the rock in scoring position. Espeleta also has a good feel for the game, utilizing change of pace moves to get in the lane.

Going forward, Espeleta must further develop his left hand handle, while also getting more comfortable shooting from mid-range and beyond.

Chris Craft - 6'4", 182 pound senior forward, Westlake (MD) - Athletic and long, Marymount, Shepherd plus Davis and Elkins are in pursuit of Craft, the owner of a 3.7 GPA.
On the court, Craft is active, rebounds, and runs the floor. To be the three-man he envisions in the college, better ball patting and outside shooting are musts.

Douglas Farley - 6'3", 185 pound senior forward, Coolidge (DC) - Farley must develop his shooting, thereby allowing him to play a three man in college. Nevertheless he uses his athletic ability and motor to impact the game favorably by scoring, rebounding and defending.
Abilene Christian has expressed some interest.

Deshawn Chinn - 6'0", 155 pound senior guard, Anacostia (DC) - Chinn possesses slick penetration moves, including one in which he seamlessly goes behind the back. A knee injury diminished some ofhis explosion, but Chinn clearly can score.

Must get stronger.

Richard Bowles - 6'1", 185 pound senior forward, Anacostia (DC) - A banger and athlete, Bowles excels in uptempo play, where he finishes and rebounds.
He doesn't have any interest from schools so far.


Chavez - The Eagles simply go hard, offensively and defensively. As Baez noted "We want to wear you down"; they pick up full court after every make, trap when possible, and constantly push the ball down team's throats.

Sometimes, Chavez can get too sped up to which Baez noted "We don't have to go super hard, all the time", which the squad's newer players are learning.

"We have a lot of young guys this year" said Baez, who has embraced team leadership. In doing so, he counsels his less experienced teammates to play hard, yet smartly.
