Salt Lake CC PG Cam Mack's two games this weekend:
--44 pts, 6 ast, 7 reb vs. Casper
--15 pts, 14 ast, 6 reb vs. #15 Western Nebraska

9 for 18 from 3pt for the weekend
@SLCCbasketball


I thought his shot looked a little off from the video honestly. Those 3pt numbers are very impressive though. But I do have to wonder, Darien William, Bashir Ahmed, and now LJ Figueroa all shot ridiculously high 3pt% in juco. Anyone know how accurate the juco reporting can be?


No idea on the accuracy of the JUCO statistics, but Ahmed was at 34% from 3 according to his JUCO conference website. The way Figgy has looked so far, he doesn't shoot like someone you would think would be anywhere near 50%. His free throw shooting makes me nervous.


Could have sworn BA was over 40% from 3 in juco maybe I’m thinking of someone else.

I understand we may be losing a few guards after this year, and this kid sounds worthy of consideration, but I can't imagine how we are focused on another guard when we need front court help. Not one, we need 2 additional frontcourt players to have a fully balanced team, especially if Roberts isn't going to give anything. It is crazy.

I'd think we have 3 ships for sure to use and up to 5.

I can tell you with absolute certainty that shooting % stats are often purposely inflated at the JUCO level.

All well and good, but we should be prioritizing bigs, after at least 2 off-seasons where we struck out, not guards or wings. And, not sure there has been anything to show that the staff can sell bigs on coming here, for whatever reason. And, the attrition among the bigs we have had is concerning. As has been pointed out, every other team you see out there (no matter what conference or level of play) have a few big guys who can give minutes. Even Hofstra (another local) managed to get two transfer bigs (one grad). I love the talent upgrades we've seen but am concerned about the balance to the recruiting efforts (over reliance on transfers is one issue; over concentration on guards is another.

But, I am happy to let the season play out and hope for the best; just perplexed as to our past inability to get some serviceable big guys here.

I sense they get a Mack commitment. If Steere visits, once he announces he is transferring, his verbal could be very possible. It would then be logical to assume they wait until Spring to assess roster re kids leaving, big men void., etc.

Perhaps Roberts impresses at practices and in modest minutes this season to be considered a viable interior choice in 19-20. They knew he was raw and needed time to develop when they recruited him.

Perfect for 3 transfers, a juco and a decommitted player from high school.

much easier to come into college BB as a guard and make an impact as a true frosh unless you have a body like Zion. Let him grow into his frame. Hes not a 1 and done , let him develop.
