International Spotlight: Warrior Within

Romney Ani @rj_ani1 , 6'2 , 181 ; c/o 25 from Loreto Sixth, Manchester is a physical guard who loves getting downhill and finishing strong at the rim, even through contact. he is fierce getting into the seams to get shots for himself or drawing the defence  and creating open shots for his teammates. Romney is also an efficient catch and shoot stud when needed. Lethal from downtown. Can drop a nice thread the needle dime and really fuel the fast break transition game well.  The best part is Romney is a scrappy lockdown defender . 

Romney's biggest accomplishment was winning the National Cup Finals Championship where he was runner up for the MVP 15 points and 3 blocks. Biggest improvement from last season is  improving his ability to effectively lead his team and control tempo and micro-manage the entire offensive flow.Also improved his three point shooting range.. Romney's goal for this season is to lead his team back to that National Finals and repeat as champions.  So far this season Romney is averaging 17.6 points, 6 assists , 3 rebounds and 2 steals per game. 

 What coaches should know is that what sets Romney apart is his strength, athleticism  and his defense despite his size.  His willingness to continue to develop and learn is huge.. Always willing to go the extra mile and sacrifice for the good of the team. By the end of his  time in the UK   Romney wants to pursue a division 1 or 2 opportunity. or a high level of basketball  around Europe   or another overseas position . Romney with extreme confidence knows he has the skill and experience to excel at either of these levels and isnt really interested in anything less and plans to keep pushing until he reaches his goal.
