Hooprootz Player Spotlight: Kur Teng

Our second edition of the Player Spotlight Series looks at DC Blue Devils guard Kur Teng. Listed as a wing last year, Teng has becgan to evolve into a true guard that will follow the path that Geo Baker, Caleb Green, Ronnie Silva and Bol Akot have paved for him with the DC Blue Devils program. Known for his shooting prowess, Teng can score it with the best of them. We look forward to seeing Kur return in March. More information on Junior Elite 75 can be found here while registration is here. Make sure to tune in every Tuesday as we will break down and preview different prospects who will be in attendance.
