Class of 2014 point guard Devon Hall averaged 16 points, 7 assists and 7 rebounds per game this past season, when he helped Cape Henry Collegiate (Virginia Beach, VA) capture the VIS Division II state championship. The 6’5″, 200-pound Hall earned VIS Division II Player of the Year honors for his performance in the 2011/2012 high school season, and he is looking to continue his consistent and solid play on the AAU circuit this spring and summer.

Hall reflected on Cape Henry’s state title run.

“It was great. First one ever for us,” said Hall, whose father, Mark Hall Sr., is the head coach of Cape Henry’s boys varsity squad.

“It was teamwork. We all worked together. We were young, so we just used teamwork.”

Hall is playing on the always talented Boo Williams 17-and-under squad this AAU season. He showed well in this past Saturday’s early session of the Hampton leg of the Nike EYBL, helping Williams’ team defeat King James 67-65. Hall’s all-around game was on display in the win, as he finished with 8 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.

Boo Williams uses Hall in a variety of ways. The standout rising junior ran the point at time, and in others he played off the ball. Most college coaches, include UVa’s Tony Bennett, are recruiting Hall as a point guard.

“I can play point. I can play the one, but as long as I’m on the court, I’m fine,”

Hall said when discussing his future position in college. “If coach wants me to play one, two, or three, as long as I’m on the floor I’m fine.

Scoring is not as important to Hall as the team’s success.

“I just like to facilitate,” he said. “If I got a shot I’ll take it, but if that other guy is under the rim, wide open, why not?”
