Quick update on Alston via the Fairfax Times:
Beating Herndon again won’t be an easy task, not with the Hornets riding a five-game win streak in which their average margin of victory has been 20 points. This time Robinson will have to deal with a player they’ve never seen before: Brandon Alston, an explosive scorer recently added to Herndon’s already high-powered lineup. The 6-foot-5 senior transfer from Life Center Academy (N.J.) enrolled at Herndon a few weeks ago and played his first game in the Hornets’ regular-season finale against Oakton. Alston, who scored 14 points against Oakton and 13 against Westfield, is still trying to find his comfort zone in an offense that now features five guys averaging double figures.
