Blue Sharks swingman Xavier Owens had a brief but very productive two months as a member of the Blue Sharks. During that time, he participated in weekly scrimmages, team meetings, and was an important part of the MLK Tournament Championship. Owens can effectively defend tall guards and small power forwards, and, with his ball handling ability, he creates scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates. Coach Rojas commented “Xavier’s ability to play several positions is an asset for any coach. He is very coachable and knows how to communicate with the coaching staff. These personal skills along with his basketball IQ will help him succeed in his basketball journey.” Owens will soon travel to Hungary to play in their professional league.
