From Walk-On to Future Seton Hall Star: Shavar Reynolds Junior


Recently, the Jersey Shore Basketball League held at Saint Rose High School in Belmar, New Jersey has had many star performances. Many D-1 and overseas talents have been showing out with high scoring games. Familiar local Jersey names like Jesse Jones and Justin Robinson are just a couple of the various skilled players.

On Thursday evening, Shavar Reynolds Junior capped off the third week of the league with a crazy fifty-one point performance. The junior out of Seton Hall had the crowd going crazy including his college friends like Myles Powell, in attendance. He nailed step back threes, dunked on other D-1 competitors, and hit defenders with deadly crossovers. Through all of this, Shavar kept the crowd watching by being very vocal to the opposing team however, he still remained composed. He led his team from a fifty point deficit and came back only losing by ten. He is currently ranked second in points per game in the league with thirty-five and a half a game through four appearances.

Coming out of Manchester High School, Shavar was team captain for three years and was a one thousand point scorer. From there he continued his academic and athletic career at Seton Hall University where he is highly known for his crazy game-winning three ball versus Saint Johns. This shot ended the game in a two-point win and he was later mobbed on the court in an iconic moment. 

Shavar also has a very unique story compared to others. He originally walked on to Seton Hall as a 6’2 guard and later on acquired a full scholarship after proving himself to head coach Kevin Willard.
