TAMPA ,FL – 2020 Cade Cunningham of Montverde Academy was the name circulating throughout the gym Saturday at the ARS Rescue Rooter National Hoopfest in Tampa, FL. The 6’7” agile SF who has shown his abilities to play 3 positions, put on a great performance against Oak Hill Academy. Cunningham flirted with a triple double finishing with 26 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assist in a 76-51 victory over Oak Hill during the nationally televised game on ESPN.
We didn’t know how comfortable Cunningham would be playing the PG spot, but it look as if it was second nature. His vision, patience and use of his height to see over guards stood out the most. He played unselfishly and his performance this weekend had us looking at him in a new light.
Cunningham is a player we think should be on NBA Scouts radar, he has all the tools you look for in a talented prospect.
Montverde have been National champs four-times in the past six seasons. They are 4-0 against Oak Hill since 2011. We will see Montverde Academy again in New York City at Geico National Championship come April.
