Kyle Anderson was named MVP of the IS8 league on Sunday and he helped the Playaz with the championship over the Shooting Stars, 77-73, with 19 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. Rutgers-bound point guard Myles Mack added 24 points for the Playaz and was named MVP of the final.
But Anderson will have to wear a medical boot to heal multiple bruises located on the bones of his right foot, according to his father, Kyle Sr. He initially sustained this injury during a 3-point loss to the Drew Gooden Soldiers in the semifinals of the Fab 48 in Las Vegas last July. He will wear the boot for a approximately 3-4 weeks.
The 6-foot-8 Anderson will still make scheduled visits to Xavier (Nov. 5) and UCLA (Nov. 12).
St. Anthony opens its season Dec. 17.
Anderson is the No. 1 point guard in the nation in the Class of 2012.
