2K Sports Preseason All-American Team: Cory Joseph
Words. Jason Jordan
Meet the 2K Sports Preseason All-American Team’s Defensive Stopper
It will be interesting to see how Cory Joesph will mesh with the other point guards on the 2k Sports All-American team in the World Basketball Tournament in Douai, France, which runs from June 8-15. With talented floor generals like Ryan Harrow, Ray McCallum and Josh Selby, Joseph will have to learn to co-exist.
Not that Joseph, a 6-3 point guard from powerhouse Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev., is any slouch. Just ask any of the schools recruiting him – Louisville, Ohio State, UNLV, Memphis, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Texas and Texas A&M.
Still, Joseph may take on a role similar to the one Kobe Bryant took with Team USA last summer – defensive stopper. Of the four point guards on the roster, Joseph is the best perimeter defender and will undoubtedly draw the assignment of shutting down the opposing team’s top offensive threat
