A host of young middle school talents hit the hardwood this past weekend for the inaugural Junior Breakfast of Champions Fall League (“JR BOC”) and when the final whistle blew young 7th grader Jaden Champion delivered one of the top performances of the week. We continued our recap of the opening week of the JR BOC with a look at some of the top performances in the Future Stars division…
JADEN CHAMPION – 2017 – G
Stat Line – 17 points (8-17 FG), 6 Rebounds, 4 Assists, 3 Steals, 1 Block, 2 Turnovers
Kicked off his JR BOC season with a huge floor game and helped lead his team to victory. Was active and assertive on both ends, made solid passes, finished off the bounce, and created positive chaos on both ends of the floor.
JORDAN JOHNSON – 2017 – G
Stat Line – 14 points (6-14 FG), 4 Rebounds, 3 Assists, 1 Steal, 2 Turnovers
Started off slowly but picked up as he went along and finished with a nice solid floor effort across the board for the opening week.
DAMON JACKSON – 2017 – PG
Stat Line – 7 points (2-7 FG), 8 Rebounds, 1 Assist, 5 Turnovers
Struggled from the field and with his decision making but was active on the glass and made some nice things happen at times.
BRUNARD WILLIAMS – 2018 – F/C
Stat Line – 6 points (3-5 FG), 9 Rebounds, 3 Assists, 1 Block, 1 Steal, 1 Turnover
Was active on the glass and finished with efficiency around the basket. As his activity elevates on both ends so will his production in the coming weeks.
RALEN BROWN – 2017 – G/F
Stat Line – 10 points (5-8 FG), 8 Rebounds, 2 Assists, 1 Block 1 Steal, 0 Turnovers
A nice solid and efficient overall floor performance. Was aggressive on the glass, finished with efficiency, and made solid decisions.
KEISEAN COLE – 2017 – F
Stat Line – 18 points (8-12 FG), 3 Rebounds, 3 Steals, 2 Assists, 2 Turnovers
Showed nice range and turned in a high level performance in terms of his efficiency scoring the basketball. Also added a number of solid items across the board. Nice opening week effort.
VIRSHON COTTON – 2017 – PG
Stat Line – 10 points (5-6 FG), 5 Assists, 5 Steals, 3 Rebounds, 1 Block, 1 Turnover
Turned in one of the best overall performances of the week as he filled the box score and helped lead his team to victory in an efficient and productive manner. Nice job.
JORDAN SMITH – 2017 – G/F
Stat Line – 11 points (5-10 FG), 10 Rebounds, 3 Steals, 1 Block, 0 Turnovers
Quietly turned in one of the better efforts on the week. Knocked down some shots, showed a solid mid-range jumper, attacked the glass, and he was active on the defensive end as well.
JAYLIN SCOTT – 2018 – PG
Stat Line – 9 points (4-10 FG), 3 Assists, 2 Rebounds, 2 Steals, 5 Turnovers
A decent opening week effort for Scott. Made some solid playmaking decisions, was active at times defensively, etc. As he continued to improve his efficiency and his activity on both ends I expect his overall production to continue to grow in the coming weeks.
QUINCY MINOR JR. – 2018 – PG
Stat Line – 11 points (4-9 FG), 4 Rebounds, 1 Assist, 1 Steal, 2 Turnovers
Was solid at times and showed an ability to finish and make things happen on both ends. Would like to see him be more assertive on both ends moving forward.
ANDREW LEWIS – 2017 – G/F
Stat Line – 2 points (1-8 FG), 4 Steals, 3 Assists, 3 Rebounds, 1 Turnover
Struggled from the field but found ways to contribute across the board with his defense, playmaking, and rebounding.
TERRENCE LEWIS – 2017 – SF
Stat Line – 22 points (10-16 FG), 17 Rebounds, 3 Blocks, 1 Assist, 0 Turnovers
One of the top individual performances of the week as Lewis was dominant on the glass on both ends and scored at will around the basket. Was active, aggressive, efficient, etc. An excellent opening week effort.
BEN CAMPBELL – 2017 – F
Stat Line – 12 points (5-10 FG) 11 Rebounds, 6 Turnovers
Despite his team’s struggles, Campbell rebounded from a tough first half to turn in a strong second half performance where he showed an ability to finish around the basket and attack the glass on both ends. As he learns to make better decisions with the basketball and becomes more efficient and active across the board, I expect his game to grow significantly with each passing week.
