We are now closing in on conference preview 10 of 32, the Big South Conference. I will be looking at three players that you need your undivided attention on this College Basketball season and in the future NCAA Tournament, the NIT, the CIT, etc. Enjoy!
Jahaad Proctor, Guard, High Point
- Proctor has improved his points per game average by 4 points from last season. He also has had a significant improvement with his 2 point shooting, over 58% shooting compared to 47% shooting last year. I think having Tubby Smith as his new coach, has helped him in creating better shot selection with Tubby’s outstanding experience with Guards.
- I’m very impressed with Jahaad’s ability to dribble and create a great shot. Not afraid to drive the lane or stop quick and put up a good shot at a high percentage.
- I would like to see a higher percentage from the 3 point line from Jahaad. He’s getting about the same amount of attempts as last year, but is only shooting 29% thus far which is off from last year at almost 39%.
Jermaine Marrow, Guard, Hampton
- Hampton made a move to the Big South from the MEAC this year, and it has done wonders for Marrow who has improved his 3 point percentage by 15%, which is spectacular. And just a side note he’s averaging over 25 points per game to add to the resume!
- 90%, that’s the percentage of how many of his games have gone for at least 20 points this season thus far. I hope the Pirates can step it up in Big South play, as their team start has been nothing to ride home about thus far.
- Based on the film I have seen, this kid also can feed the rock especially with alley oops. Marrow has the ability to improve his assist number (5) in once we get into Big South play.
Chris Clemons, Guard, Campbell
- At one point last season, Clemons was the #2 ranked scorer in ALL of College Basketball. He is now the top scorer in the NCAA by 4 points. Not bad for a guy that stands 5’9 (As a 5’9 person myself, I wish I had this scoring average back in my day!)
- He’s gone for 40 already twice this year. I’m sure he made Patrick Ewing cringe a little bit, that a guy under a foot shorter than him could put up 45 points on his Hoyas! a 67% shooter from inside the 3 point line is nothing to joke about, Clemons is the real deal for the Fighting Camels.
- Clemons is a high flyer and can dunk with an edge to it. Draws a comparison to Spudd Webb, a dangerous scorer in college with a great vertical (Webb’s was 42 inches, Clemons has topped him at 44 inches). I hope to see the Fighting Camels fight for postseason play, as Clemons better catch your eye.
