Junior – Forward
6’3 – 175
2017-18 Preview: Darius is a long and athletic wing player who can finish above the rim. He runs the passing lanes during transition opportunities and can handle the ball and push up the floor too. Playing on a smaller team this season, Darius will be forced to play mostly inside, however, he will have opportunities to step out and play wing positions as well. His length allows him to guard bigger athletes and his athleticism helps him to be a good help defender.
Past Seasons: Darius is entering his first season on the varsity level. Last season he played well for Coach Keys on junior varsity level as a big man. He dominated the offensive and defensive glass as well as pushed the ball during fast break opportunities.
Personal: Darius was born on 10/06/00. He is the son of Miriam Funches. He attended Longfellow for middle school where he played for Coach Barnett. His favorite subject at Hamilton is History with Mr. Parkinson. The Oklahoma Thunder are Darius’s favorite basketball team and if he could pick any food to eat, it would be pizza.
