Brogdon Turning In Monster Senior Season

Malcolm Brogdon

It appears Virginia landed a good one — a very, very good one — in Greater Atlanta Christian (Atlanta, GA) guard Malcolm Brogdon .

“He had an outstanding year for us last year, but he has still really improved his game,” Greater Atlanta Christian head coach Eddie Martin said. “His ball-handling is much better. He has more explosiveness. He is shooting lights out. He’s averaging 25 points per game, but he is shooting over 55 percent from 2-point range and over 43 percent from 3-point range and 85 percent from the free throw line. He is putting up good numbers. He’s averaging about 12 rebounds per game. And a lot of nights, he ends up guarding the other team’s best player. It has been a pleasure to coach him. I don’t want this season to end because I don’t want to lose him. He’s definitely a big plus for us. When he gets to Virginia, people will see what kind of a great kid he is. The kid is unbelievable.”

Through 18 games, the 6-5, 205-pound senior is averaging 25.5 points, 11.9 rebounds, 2.9 steals and 2.8 assists per game, and this has included top performances at a couple of notable high school tournaments. Most recently, GAC traveled to Springfield, Missouri, for the 27th annual Bass Pro Shop Tournament. In three games, Brogdon had 95 total points, good for a tie for fourth on the all-time tournament
