QUINN COOK AS TOLD BY QUINN COOK - ALL-MET ELITE

QUINN COOK
AS TOLD
BY
 QUINN COOK 
 ALL-MET ELITE
 
DEMATHA HS.
HYATTSVILLE MD.
 
"I went to two powerhouse high schools, but I've never had an easy road. When I was a freshman at DeMatha, everybody said I would never play there -- I would have to wait till my junior year; that drove me to make varsity and start. Playing at Oak Hill, people said I would never be anything there; I was the first player since @RajonRondo to average 20 and 10. I went to a powerhouse college at Duke. There were a lot of guards there and people told me I would never play there -- I would have to transfer. But I got on the court and I became an All-American.

And people now, they’re saying that I’m not good enough to play in the
@NBA. So I’m going into this D-League process wanting to get better, be a true pro, learn from my coaches and ultimately be a successful NBA point guard. I think when I finally make it and can sit back and think 'I'm an NBA point guard,' I'll really cherish it. But until then, I've gotta keep working like I'm not there." ��

2015
GOVERNORS CHALLENGE
ALL-MET ELITE
 
CHRISTIAN MATTHEWS
NATIONAL CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
FORT WASHINGTON MD.
 
The Governor’s Challenge, the largest holiday high school basketball tournament on the East Coast. 100 teams will compete in the tournament this year and it includes boys’ varsity, girls’ varsity and a boys’ JV division.
 
Teams from Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, New York and Washington, D.C. will compete in the tournament that will span over five days.
 
 The tournament will use the Civic Center, the Salisbury School and Wicomico, James M. Bennett and Parkside high schools as venues.
The tournament has nearly doubled in size from last year and will likely continue to grow.  With that, comes more teams with more marquee players who will wind up competing at the college level.
 
 Since 2010, more than 225 athletes that have competed in the Governor’s Challenge have gone on to play in college.
 
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Christian Matthews, wing, senior, committed to Georgia Tech
National Christian (Fort Washington, Maryland)
Before committing to Georgia Tech, Matthews had received offers from N.C. State, Cincinnati, Rhode Island, Temple, DePaul and VCU. The 6’6” wing can jump out of the gym and can play a few different positions. He has a decent three-point shot, is one of the best finishers around the rim in the DMV and is active on the glass and defense. ESPN has him ranked as the 56th best small forward in the nation and Maryland’s eighth best player.
Matthews will play:
Monday, Dec. 28 vs. Mount Carmel, 4:15 p.m.
Tuesday, Dec. 29 vs. West Charlotte, 5:30 p.m.

What has been your most memorable basketball moment so far?

 I will never forget the game I won the AAU national championship. It was like in third grade and I played with D.C. Assault and with a lot of kids from the D.C. area. We probably lost about just one game that year and we ended up winning the title.
