NEW HAVEN –– Maryland signee Bruno Fernando looked impressive in his first game with IMG Academy at the National Prep Showcase at Albertus Magnus College.
Displaying a diversified skillset, including several jumpers, a hook shot and a handful of rim-rattling dunks, the 6-foot-10 Fernando went for 20 points and 3 blocks as IMG Academy (FL) beat St. Thomas More (CT), 75-64.
“I think I’m a really good post player but since I got to IMG I’ve been playing more on the perimeter,” he said after the win. “I’ve been definitely working on my jumpers a lot. Since I got to IMG, my coach has been doing a great job letting me play outside the paint a little bit. I’ve been playing more outside than inside. I think I can get a lot more better at that. I just have to keep working on it.”
