Andre pushed the Yellowjackets back to the State Tournament Final Four following a win over St. Georges Tech Sunday.
While being one of the state's most dangerous scorers, Horne says he also likes helping his teammates get easier baskets.
"I draw a lot of attention as I attack the basket, so I just find my teammates wide open on the corner or for 3. I just give them the ball."
I asked Andre to give us a self-scouting report.
"I'm a hard worker, hustle for every loose play, and an amazing scorer. I'm a rebounder and an outside shooter, I do it all."
By making the quarterfinals last week, Newark got to play at the Bob Carpenter at UD, a longer sized court, and Andre says the experience will help him in the future, and now.
"You've got to get ready for big size courts like that. It was a really good experience because I played in other arenas like that and it's no big deal."
As for life after basketball, Andre says he's interested in coming back and becoming a basketball coach.
"I saw a lot of NBA guys doing that and on TV, and I think if I do that I'd be remembered back in Delaware."
