Oak Hill Academy Has 8 Players in the Sweet 16

 Only one man in America has coached an NCAA champion in each of the last four years.

And his name isn’t John Calipari, Bill Self orMike Krzyzewski.

And only one man in America had players on eight different teams when this NCAA Tournament began.

And he isn’t an agent, a runner or a high-profile AAU coach.

His name is Steve Smith, and he’s the head coach at Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va.

When March Madness began, Smith’s former players were on eight teams in all four regions: Ben McLemore (Kansas), Damien Wilson (Memphis), Quinn Cook (Duke),Lamont “Momo” Jones (Iona), Jordan Adams (UCLA), D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera (Georgetown), Tyler Lewis (N.C. State) and Baye Keita (Syracuse).

    The fourth annual Elite Showcase Basketball Classic, run by Virginia Elite founder Thomas Gadson and company, featured some of the top talent in the area and across the nation.

    The 6-foot-10 post player was one of the most active players on both ends of the court. At 238 pounds, Dodd can run the floor and shows flashes of a mid-range game. He’s not afraid to bang inside and is sound defensively with his footwork and shot-blocking ability. Dodd’s year of post-grad education at Massanutten appears to have polished his game well as he prepares to join a Terrapins team that likes to run. As he continues to fill out his frame, Dodd will have to evolve his post game to where he cuts out the fadeaways and relies on strong moves to the basket. Good get for the Terps.
