“Uwem” Eshietedoho (pronounced eh-SHEH-tay-eh-DAY-ho) is a 6’8”, 225-lb. power forward from the very strong American High School program in south Florida. He is expected to be one of the top players in Miami-Dade County this season after averaging 10.0 points per game, 12.2 rebounds per outing, and 3.1 blocks per game in his junior season. He earned Honorable Mention All Dade County last season, and registered 24 points vs. Carol City in the District Championship game, a 48-43 win for American. In his two years of varsity basketball, Uwem and his teammates have compiled records of 28-2 (2002-03) and 26-4 (2003-04) under Head Coach Jimmie Jones.
An excellent student, Eshietedoho will be named American High School’s Scholar Athlete of the Year this spring and he is considering a major of Political Science at UMBC.
Greene is a 5’8”, 165-lb. point guard who led Whitehall High School to a record of 27-4, a conference title, and a District XI AAAA championship last season.

Greene, who was also named Lehigh Valley Interscholastic Athletic Conference Player of the Year, averaged 16.4 ppg, 6.5 assists per game, 4.0 rebounds and 3.0 steals per outing.
