While just a sophomore, Bennett McCormick is already off to a big start this season. The 6’3” guard is currently averaging 15.1 points to go along with 5.8 rebounds per game for Catholic Memorial High School (WI). He is leading his team in both of those statistics right now. 

McCormick is a versatile wing guard that is able to get a lot done on the floor. He is able to get into the paint often with a good combination of quickness and strength. The sophomore is also a tough defender with good length who can match up with both guards and forwards out on the perimeter. Additionally, he is a skilled passer who also rebounds very well for his size. 

However, there are a few pieces of his game that he would like to improve upon. “I would like to become more consistent from three-point range and continue to shoot north of 35%. Also, a huge strength of mine is getting to the free throw line, so I want to capitalize on those opportunities and be around 75-80% by the end of the year,” McCormick said as the top things he is working on. 

While his team sits at only 5-9 on the year, McCormick sees optimism in the future. “Our average margin of loss is about five ppg, so we are hanging in there and getting better every day.”

Prior to having an impressive high school season, McCormick was getting it done for a talented JH1 Elite team this past summer.  When speaking about his summer season, McCormick stated “I thought I had a very good summer. I started to shoot the ball with much more confidence and it really helped expand my game.”

At this point, there are a few colleges starting to show interest in him, but McCormick is focused on his game and season at this point. “I know there is a lot of time in the process to play itself out. So, I am just going to continue to work hard and be a great teammate.”
