PC Conditioning Team Member Excels in New York


I just wanted to take a moment to congratulate PC Conditioning team member Ephraim McDowell. I had the pleasure of working with Ephraim the summer before his freshman year @ Hamilton College in New York. I can honestly say that no one I've trained to date has matched his work ethic and dedication. The fact he's a fellow hoops junkie and that we play the same position definitely made our training sessions that much more enjoyable.

Here's a great piece The Boston Globe ran on him in today's paper:

Basketball arc is now ‘complete’
Ephraim McDowell, a graduate of Beaver Country Day School in Newton, has become a “complete player’’ as a junior guard on the Hamilton College men’s basketball team, according to head coach Tobin Anderson.

“He will always be a tremendous shooter, but his relentless work ethic has made him very good at every facet of the game,’’ said Anderson, whose team was 5-2 overall at semester break. “He’s become a strong leader and he is a fun guy to coach.’’

The 5-foot-11 captain, whose teammates include sophomore forward Eric Benvenuti of Concord (Concord Academy), was selected to the Liberty League’s Team of the Week for the second straight week on Dec. 13 after averaging 18.5 points in a two-game span.

A resident of Boston, McDowell ranks second in the league in scoring at 17 points per game, second in free-throw percentage at 88.9 percent, fourth in 3-point field goal percentage at 47.2, and leads the league with 25 3-pointers.

At Beaver, McDowell was the school’s second all-time leading scorer with more than 1,700 points and was a two-time Eastern Independent League all-star. A two-year captain, he also set a school record for 3-point field goals and was a McDonald’s All-American nominee his senior year.
