Harrisburg, PA (July 31, 2017) - Former Saint Peter's men's basketball standout, Desi Washington, recently participated in the 2017 iBall Pro Basketball Combine in Pottstown, PA. The event featured some the nation's top free agents as they compete in front of NBA, WNBA and Overseas coaches and scouts for the consideration of contracts at the U.S. and international professional basketball level.
In addition, the iBall Coaches Clinic featured coaches Phil Martelli, Cindy Griffin, head basketball coaches of the men's and women's programs at St. Joseph's University as well as former 16-year pro player and current Harlem Globetrotter coach, Mike Richmond and former Temple University Coach Nate Blackwell.
At iBall, Washington played for Team Cutillos and was awarded First Team and ranked 3rd in points (17.3 /gm), 19th in rebounds, 3rd in assists, 6th in steals, and 6th in athleticism according to stats by MAXOUT.
Washington, a 6-2 guard from Saint Peter's University averaged 13.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists while connecting on 84.6% on his free throws, is a fearless combo guard who can drive to the rim without hesitation. Scoring 1596 points in his collegiate career, Washington is a streaky shooter who has knocked down two game winning 3s -- with one that upsetted Seton Hall.
From an action-packed tournament and professional level drills for skills evaluations, to intensive speed and athletic tests, and an all-star game, iBall Pro Combine inform scouts on key metrics that guide their decisions for making offers to players for professional basketball contracts.
