Chartiers Valley sophomore guard T.J. McConnell, (who Dukes Court has officially nicknamed "Wunderkind") was named the Pittsburgh Male Athlete of the Week this morning by the Pittsburgh Tribute Review. McConnell averaged 24.6 points and six 3-pointers per game in Chartiers Valley's path to the KSA Disney Classic championship in Orlando, Fla., last week.
McConnell has already verbally committed to Duquesne and is making Ron Everhart look like a visionary with his ridiculous play so far this year.
As if putting up great numbers as a 5'8 135 pound sophomore isn't enough McConnell is already talking about how he can improve his game, "I'd like to get a better handle on the ball and going around people. On defense, I just want to keep looking in (an opponent's) eyes and telegraph where the pass is going and get a few steals a game."
