Worcester head coach Mo Cassara was excited to talk about his star guard Dwight Brewington. And for several good reasons. "He is as talented a player as I have ever had," said the four-year coach. "He jumps so high and is very athletic. He is going to be a great college player."
Brewington, who has given a commitment to the Providence Friars, is averaging 18.6 points a game. "He also gets us six rebounds and has three assists a game too. He can do so many things on the court," Cassara said. "It's been fun having him here. But we have more work to do and so does he."
Cassara is referring to the NEPSAC tournament. The event starts tomorrow and concludes on Sunday. "We need him to have a good game to win it all," Cassara said. "The great thing about Dwight is he can create his own shot. He can always find a way to get his shot off."
This will help Brewington on the next level. "When I had my big guys hurt I had to play him at the power forward position," Cassara said. "He can do so many things for us when he is on the court."
Cassara believes that Brewington will have a major impact in the Big East for the Friars. Cassara should know. Craig Smith, who played center last year for Worcester, is one of the best freshman players in the country for Boston College.
