2014 Lamonte Bearden
6’2″ Point Guard
9/10/13 – Committed to Buffalo.
LNH Notes: (8/13/13) Bearden is a versatile point guard with room to further develop. Minnesota is now showing strong interest and we actually like how he projects more so than some of the other point and combo guards the Gophers are looking at.
He’s got some speed and athleticism and is capable of being a very good outside shooter who can also drive into the lane. Nice pick and roll game and overall passing ability is strong; good length. Generates a lot of steals on defense. His handles are pretty and his turnover rate should continue to fall with age and experience.
Bearden transferred from Homestead to top program Germantown near the end of his sophomore year and helped them earn a state championship this spring (their second undefeated season in a row). His teammate Luke Fischer has since graduated and joined the Indiana Hoosiers.
Lamonte showed impressive progression his junior year and put together a good spring/summer campaign with Wisconsin Swing. Once thought of as more of a mid-major point guard, his future could very well be with a high major and we think he’s got a good chance to do well.(end 8/13/13 notes)
