FHSAA 9A State Semifinal
Evans vs Wellington
If any team looks like a team of destiny, it's the 2019 version of the Wellington Wolverines. After an improbable 3 point shot by De'ante Perez to end the regional championship to send them to state, Wellington sits just two wins away from its second state title in a five year span. Anyone outside of hard core hoops followers will be hard pressed to name any player on the squad other than senior Linton Brown. But this team is so much more, and the key word here is team. In addition to Brown, Wellington rolls out a solid group which features essential seniors leaders Cornelius Butler and Myles Samuels. Butler is a bulldog on the ball defender with solid PG skills that makes them go. Samuels stands 6' 4" and a versatile scorer that compliments Brown giving the Wolverines nice size when you add in 6' 5" sophomore shooter Christopher Walker. They square off against an Evans team ranked #23 in MaxPreps state rankings but really hasn't faced a team like Wellington. This should be another close contest which is the way Wellington likes it.
