Sadeeq Bello:Making a name for himself
By: Kevin Duffy
"Yeah it gets annoying sometimes" says Sadeeq Bello about him being named as "Deuce's little brother". Sadeeq who is in the class of 2014 just wants to make a name for himself.
The point guard has learned a lot from his brother and "brother" Quincy Miller, both Baylor commits and best friends. "I learn a lot from them. Every time I play against them it helps me", Sadeeq said.
With Deuce and Quincy both leaving for college next year, Sadeeq expects a big role in the Westchester Country Day team. He says he has to become a leader next year on the Westchester team. He describes his game as that he likes to get his team involved, push it and score at the same time. Fairly similar to his previous counterparts.
The younger Bello currently holds offers from Cleveland State and Baylor with Marquette and Penn State are showing interest. If you are looking to see him play this summer, he is running with Kingdom Athletes 15U now and later on in the summer he will be playing with the U17 team.
However, the 5'6 130 pound PG realizes he still has a lot of work ahead of him. He works out every day and realizes that there are no days off to become like Deuce and Quincy. He states that he still has to improve his strength and finishing around the basket.
From one Bello to the next, the torch of North Carolina basketball is a family thing. It seems that Deuce will not be forgotten in North Carolina but could he soon be mentioned as "Sadeeq's brother"? Time will tell.
