Seam Splitting Sentry

Ray Cuevas @raycuevo, 6'2, 200, c/o 24 from Pingree School is an elusive combo guard who loves to find the gaps and seams in the defense. Probing for weaknesses and then exploring them. Versatile enough to elevate for the pullup or kick out to open teammates once he sucks the defense in to stop him. Strong finisher at the rim or can nail the step-back jumper if the lane is clogged. Great decision-maker with precision to make the right plays. His strength allows him to and long arms allow him to get into the passing lanes and raise up hige transition dunks. The sneak part of his game is the athleticism to rise up through traffic with crafty and creative moves. Definition of triple threat scoring machine shooting a blistering 40% from downtown. but Ray is so much more than just a scorer as he mixes it up well on the boards, drops sweet dimes, and plays outstanding defense. Tay van effectively defends bigger guards with their wings and strength.

In the AAU session, Ray averaged 22 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1 block per game. A consistent standout establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with. Ray's biggest improvement was his strength and speed. By staying consistent in the right room Ray increased his size and athleticism. Ray was determined to have a college-level body to match his college-level skillset. Another focus was consistency on his jump shot and better ball handling. Goodness did it ever pay off. Ray's favorite achievement was receiving his first offer to St. Michaels.

Last season Ray averaged 21 points, 5 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 2 steals while shooting a sizzling 41% from downtown. Taus goals for this upcoming season are to win their league and advance to the the NEPSAC tournament while breaking the 2000-point level.

What coaches should know is his work ethic of intense and geared to constantly get better and can adjust to many offenses quickly with an amazing basketball IQ. Ray has the fire and drive to do everything he can to impact every game. Ray already holds two D2 offers and some D1 interest that I personally think will pick up steam with the breakout that I believe he is destined for. It's going be be special I tell ya. Don't sleep on this young star and keep a close eye on his show this season. Ray will not disappoint.
