“He’s 6-foot-6 and shoots it well,” Delhi coach Rob Schoener said of Mehmetaj. “Against bigger guys, he can move out and shoot the three and he can post up littler guys. He played very well.”

The winner of the Region III Tournament will receive an automatic berth to the NJCAA Division III Tournament.
