Trevon Duval & IMG Tip Off in Iverson’s Old Stomping Grounds
Trevon Duval & IMG headed to Virginia on Friday to play Norcom in the Bulldogs Showcase at King’s Fork High School in Suffolk, VA. Suffolk is thirty miles away from Hampton, home of NBA great Allen Iverson.
The IMG Ascenders, who came in ranked No. 5 by PrepNation and No. 7 by USA Today, were led by five-star guard Trevon Duval, rated the No. 5 player in the country by ESPN. They also have three talented juniors in Emmitt Williams, Silvio DeSousa and former Norview player Keyontae Johnson.
The Greyhounds kept the game close early before a standing-room only crowd – that included a strong Norcom following – but the Ascenders pulled away late for a 92-80 win. Duval finished with 19.
Johnson’s return was helped by IMG coach Vince Walden, who is from Suffolk. IMG will play Village Christian (N.C.) at 8:15 tonight in the Bulldog Showcase, also at King’s Fork.
