Aquinas junior star leads Irish to Final Four

Thursday February 28, 2013

Augusta, Ga--Go to Youtube and type in the name Ahmed Hill. You'll thank me for it. The Aquinas star is a highlight reel pretty much every game out. That highlight reel is leading Aquinas to a possible state title.

The Irish are into the state semifinals and tomorrow travel to Kennesaw to take on St Francis. You see Hill is one of the most sought after juniors in the nation. You name the big time program, they've talked or texted Hill. Yea, winning is on his mind first and foremost, but he doesn't mind all the stuff surrounding his recruitment.

"Sometimes it could, sometimes you could get a big head but I really don't focus on that, I just take it as a complement or something." said Ahmed Hill

Hill has taken his game to another level this year. He's averaging 30 points a ballgame and has become more of a complete player. His ball handling skills has really improved.

"I got better with my ballhandling" said Hill "I got better dribbling, getting to the basket anytime I want to. Last year I probably was just a shooter or I could score in transition, now I can create off of nothing."

Hill says most of the mail he's gotten from colleges, he's yet to open, and puts it in a big box, really a big box. He'll get to it later on, hopefully after winning a state crown.
