BREAKING NEWS A STAR IS BORN – NYBL & God First’s Isaiah LeBlanc

LeBlanc is a fearless competitor out of Houston, Texas - He has a very good feel for the game and matching basketball IQ. He also is a great decision maker when being pressured. In Session 3 of the NYBL Isaiah made his biggest statement yet averaging 20ppg, 5 rebounds, 3 assist per contest – a testament to his growth and versatility.  

Throughout the weekend and season LeBlanc has shown a propensity to make plays off the dribble especially in the arc and has exhibited a very solid and mature mid-range arsenal.  Already possessing great length he is an underrated athlete – his cerebral nature may be his most potent weapon as he thinks the game and sees plays develop well before they happen.  He has been well trained and drilled as evident with the way he attacks defenders; the lost art of working out of the triple threat is a phase of LeBlanc‘s game that is a pleasure to watch. 

LeBlanc led his team to a 5-0 record in Session 3 of NYBL and was amazingly consistent each and every time out; far from a volume scorer Isaiah shot a solid percentage on his way to getting his numbers – he already realizes the value of getting to the line and using defense to create his offense.  His impressive frame is still growing and it appears he'll be a versatile 3-man at the next level. He plays much bigger than he is, due to his wingspan and hand size. He has a smooth stroke out beyond the stripe and frankly as good as he is now his best days are in front of him.  As the title states a star has been born; but just wait until this baller grows up – you can see him next at NYBL Session 4 where his stock will rise further with a solid play off performance.
