Keep a close eye on Dunbar All-Met Tre Kelley. If you blink, you may regret it.
Kelley is known for putting on entertaining scoring clinics. Last year he averaged an area-high 27.9 points.
But there has been one major change -- now he call himself a champion. Kelley, a 6-foot-2 senior shooting guard, scored a team-high 25 points Saturday to lead Dunbar to its first DCIAA title since 1999 with a 75-62 victory over Cardozo.
"It doesn't matter who Gonzaga puts in front of me," said Kelley, who has committed to South Carolina. "They want to stop me from scoring and getting this championship. I'm not going to let that happen."
Best known for: Kelley has a solid all-around game, but it's his scoring that leads the team.
He is averaging 27.1 points, has reached the 40-point plateau three times and scored 30 or more points 10 times. He had a season-high 44 points in a 92-64 victory over Anacostia on Dec. 16.
On a team filled with players who fit into Gonzaga's structured schemes, senior Lorenzo Miles stands out. A flashy ball-handler and deft passer, Miles, a 6-foot point guard, appears to be moving faster than everyone else.
He leads the Eagles in scoring at 11.5 points per game, but his job is to conduct Gonzaga's deliberate offense efficiently.
"This is probably my last game playing for Gonzaga," Miles said. "So there's going to be no holding back. . . . Winning a City Title would be the perfect way to go out."
Best known for: Miles has had many memorable performances this season, but one scene stands out. Late in Gonzaga's 58-46 victory over Paul VI Catholic in the WCAC title game, Miles took a long pass and delivered a one-handed dunk that essentially ended the Panthers' hopes.
