Amar Bhojani is used to being Slept on, Plans to Show up Big at Houston JBA Tryout


Amar Bhojani may not look like your typical basketball player, but he’s used to proving doubters wrong. Listed at 5-foot-8, and 145 pounds, he may walk light, but intends to carry a big stick during tomorrow’s Houston JBA League tryout.

He starred at Kempner High School in the Houston area where he averaged over 15 points and six assists his senior year. He also spent some time at top prep school, Oak Hill Academy for his sophomore year. He spoke with Fresh Sports Talk about what he plans to bring during tomorrow’s tryout.
