Kyrie Irving – Throughout the Years | His Journey from Freshman Year (Higher College) to the NBA

Kyrie Irving : Throughout the years.

Witness his rise to basketball stardom. Starting from his high school years when Kyrie attended a modest private school, Montclair Kimberley Academy, and then transferring to perennial national-powerhouse St Patrick’s High School. This is how it all started for Kyrie Irving, who is regarded as the ideal player to ever come out of New Jersey.

Highlights include by no means before seen footage of Kyrie Irving during his high school seasons with MKA and St. Patrick’s, as well as the New Jersey RoadRunners AAU Program. Added highlights are shown following higher college, such as Duke University, Cleveland Cavaliers and Group USA, all in chronological order.

Sophomore guard Kelsey Minato scored a Patriot League Championship game-record 31 points, as the second-seeded Army Women’s Basketball team defeated No. 5 Holy Cross, 68-58, to claim its second conference title March 15 at Christl Arena.

By virtue of winning the conference championship, the Black Knights (25-7) earn the Patriot League’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in Division I program history. Army final reached the national tournament in 2006. The Black Knights’ 25 victories set the team’s Division I record for most victories in a season, and tie the all-time total set as a Division II program in 1983-84 (25-three).

“These little ones knew that what ever the atmosphere was going to be, they had been going to make their own history right here tonight,” Army head coach Dave Magarity said. “For us to come out and execute the game program the way that we did was special.

“(The team) embraced what occurred the last time we played a championship game right here. We told the story, we showed them the story, but we also spent a lot of time talking about how this is their time. (The 2005-06 team) is such a massive portion of the fabric of our history here, but this group will go down as one particular of the very best.”

Minato, who was named the tournament’s most-worthwhile player, went 10-of-18 from the floor and 8-of-8 from the foul line, even though also grabbing five rebounds. Senior guard Jen Hazlett earned All-Tournament Group honors and completed with seven points and 5 boards, and freshman forward Danielle Failor posted seven points and seven rebounds. Junior guard Krishawn Tillett and sophomore forward Brianna Johnson also tallied seven points.

Seniors Brisje Malone and Alex Smith every netted 16 points to lead Holy Cross (20-12), while sophomore Raquel Scott posted a double-double with 15 points and a game-higher 15 rebounds.

  1. I won’t tell a lie. Golden State is my favorite TEAM. Kyrie will forever remain my favorite pg. He the only one that can teach u something about basketball but life too. Curry just teach u that his shot go crazy??????

  2. I’m a huge warriors fan but this my nigga….I mean I don’t hate the cavs…but this is my favorite player on the cavs

  3. I don’t think many players go from being called ‘excellent’ defensively to being bad in that area from high school to NBA; excellent to average, sure, but it’s a shame to see him become so poor defensively at the highest level where he is supposed to become better in all facets of the game.

  4. Kyrie is freakin awesome. I want to be just like him or better when I start playing in college and on to the NBA. This is my dream am going to make reality soon. He’s my favorite basketball player. And also Lebron James with his skills as a small forward.

  5. Now u need to add that championship and "the shot". Hope this years finals gave him some confidence for next year and i hope he goes off.

  6. I went to Roosevelt middle school, the same middle school Kyrie went to. He was gonna go to WO high, but went to MKA instead and finally transferred to St. Pats High. I remember him coming to my 8th grade science class when he was in college, but was on leave cause he had a broken toe. Amazing to see how far he has come.

  7. He lived in Melbourne Australia when he was a kid. Is this true? Just heard this story on the court at training today. One of my favourite players; We love you Kyrie=Massive Respect
