Get to Know 2014-15 GW Men's Basketball Freshman Anthony Swan
Swan was limited to just 14 minutes per game during his senior season in 2013-14 due to injury yet still managed to average 8.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.1 blocks for his Virginia Episcopal School (VES) team that finished 18-5 overall, won the Virginia Independent Conference (VIC) tournament and reached the VISAA Division II state semifinals. Once healthy, Swan turned in some standout performances late in the season, including 19 points and eight rebounds in a VIC Tournament semifinal victory, then 22 points and five 3-pointers, all in the first quarter, to help VES rout Highland Academy, 100-43, in the VISAA Division II quarterfinals.
The versatile 6-foot-8 wing averaged 17 points, six rebounds, three assists and two blocks to earn First Team All-State honors and help VES to a 21-4 overall record and an appearance in the VISAA Division II state title game as a junior in 2012-13. He was also a Second Team All-State pick as a sophomore as the Bishops' reached the VISAA D-II title game in 2011-12.
