Pitt Recruit Steven Adams Dominant In New Zealand U21 National Tournament; Named MVP

Steven Adams' game was on display at the New Zealand Under 21 National Championships. The Pitt recruit starred in the tournament, averaging 24.8 points a game. Adams' Wellington team also won the championship, defeating Harbour in the final, 84-81 in overtime. For his efforts, Adams was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.

Adams' offense has to make Pitt fans excited for what may come. The defense and rebounding are expected to be there when he arrives on campus to play this fall, but it looks as if he can also help lead the team as a scorer. Adams scored at least 15 points in each of his team's six games and topped 20 points four times. He also tallied a tournament-high 38 points in one game against Counties-Manukau and was one of only three players in the entire event to reach 30 points.
