The FEU Tamaraws took a beating inside the shaded lane against the taller and bigger big men of the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the recently concluded UAAP Season 74 Men's Basketball Finals. They were out-rebounded and were over powered by the more powerful and more athletic big men of the Blue Eagles.
That's probably the reason why the Tamaraws acquired another big man who is athletic and who can compete with the best of them inside the shaded lane. That new big man's name is Anthony Hargrove. Check out his profile.
1. Name: Anthony Hargrove
2. Hometown: Newark, New Jersey
3. Highschool: Pius X Royals (Pennsylvania)
4. Jersey: 24
6. Height: 6'6"
7. Experience: Played forward in his senior year where he averaged 15.6 points 9.7 rebounds 1.9 assists 1.7 blocks 1.1 steals.
Unlike the other big men of FEU such as Pippo Noundou and Christian Sentcheu, Anthony Hargrove can defend well and can score at will. He has nice footwork in the paint, he jumps high, he can dunk at will, he is a great shot blocker, he is a hard worker and more importantly he can defend well around the rim. He is also quick and agile despite his long frame. That's why I believe that this guy can really mix it up against the other big men of the UAAP when he becomes eligible to play for the Tamaraws.
Here's how he plays:
