This weeks spotlight player is “KK” Keneth Alexander. He is our 6’6 multi versitle wingman. KK has played every position except for the point guard. According to coach Gordon Beresford,”KK is our most consistant offensive player. He has came up with game winning block shots along with key 3pt shots to close games out. Without KK we would not have had a 20 win season.”. Going into the playoffs KK will be a key player to watch. He is an exciting player who plays above the rim and can spread the floor with his outside shooting. The Matrix are very proud to have a player like KK and love to see him excel on the court.
This weeks spotlight player is on the Matrix defensive stopper Josh Dozier. According to coach Ben Darling, “Josh is the most underated player in this conference. He is our defensive stopper.” Josh has been put on every teams best player. It doesn’t matter if it’s the point guard or the center, Josh will guard whoever he needs to. Along with his defense, his offense isn’t bad either. He’s had excellent games against Stockton with 15pts, 5rebs, and 5 steals. Against Sacramento he had 20pts, 10 rebs, and 2 steals, adding a monster 15 rebound game against Chico. Coach Gordon says that “Without Josh, we would not be ranked 7th in the nation, Josh is one of those players you can’t put a value on, he is that good.”
So what is expected of this year’s team? According to Gordon Beresford, he expects nothing less than another championship this year. There will be a lot of new faces on the team along with a mix of great new talent. All of the games will be played at Diablo Valley Junior College in Pleasant Hill. It is a great city located in the valley near Walnut Creek and Concord. Their season starts in November. The Matrix are excited to bring a professional basketball team to the wonderful people in this area.
