Notre Dame High School (Conn.), and future Georgetown guard Tremont Waters gave Hoyas fans high hopes for the future with his performance at the Spalding Hoophall Classic on Saturday.
Waters, who is Georgetown’s highest rated recruit since Isaac Copeland, registered 29 points (7-10 FG), seven assists, and four rebounds in Notre Dame’s win over Archbishop Molloy (NY). Waters displayed his potential on defense, generating five steals and pressuring the ball.
The 5-foot-9 guard was deadly from behind the arc as he knocked down seven three-pointers on 10 attempts. He buried a three-pointer from 27 feet, which got the crowd buzzing. Waters showed that he is a quality ball handler and scorer.
Waters is excited for the transition to the next level, and seeks to get more out of Georgetown than basketball.
“It was obviously a basketball decision, but it was more of a decision based on after basketball,” Waters told Mass Live. “I’m not going to play in the NBA forever, if I even make it. It’s a great business school, and the coaches have my best interests at heart.”
