If anything, this countdown of top area boys players has outlined just how deep and talented the NECC will be during the 2019-2020 season. They add another player in that talent pool with the transfer of Noah Wolfe to Churubusco from Canterbury.
Wolfe is well known for his shooting prowess and is an absolute game changer on offense when his shots are falling. Wolfe averaged 12 points a game for Canterbury during the team’s up and down season a year ago, but had games where he absolutely torched the nets. Over the summer, Wolfe showed an expanded effort to getting to the basket and scoring at the rim. Passing up shots from long range that he would traditionally put up in order to drive to the basket or find an open teammate is an area that he has shown a lot of work. He did average 3.2 assists per game last season at Canterbury too.
Defensively, Wolfe is an all out player who makes tough and gritty plays, averaging 1.7 steals per game. He can be incredibly disruptive and aggressive.
“Great defender, who can score,” Churubusco coach Chris Paul says of Wolfe. “Very aggressive player who will team very well with Jackson [Paul] this year.”
