    Despite being an elite shooter, JBJ’s lack of court vision made him less efficient from time to time. There was a fast break that both Yogi and another guy were wide open on the perimeter, but he still decided to attach the rim and got blocked.

    James in HS was such a scorer… doesn’t have a lot of experience “giving up the ball.”

    True, but he is improving and more importantly, wants to get better. He did find Troy underneath for the reverse dunk in the 2nd half, and hopefully we’ll see more of that. Also, his rebounding has been a significant contribution in many games.

    So glad you featured that last play, Ryan. That might have been my favorite play of the night. I thought it was going to be a turnover and suddenly James kicked it into overdrive and blew by the defender. At that point you knew he was going to the bucket and score. The and-1 and fouling out Tate was double icing on the cake.

    He’s got to continue to use his body against defenders or he will be back to James Blocked-man Junior.
