The PAC-12 All Star team is in China and the first game is in the books. All three Utah players made it into the game. So, what do Utah basketball fans need to know? I personally am not sure. How good is the competition they are playing? I figure it is just as indicative as summer league in the NBA. For example, Ian Clark was a summer league star who can’t get on the floor with the Jazz.
Brandon Taylor – Played 16 minutes, 4 points, 4 assist, and 1 turnover.
I like the assist to turnover ratio.
Jordan Loveridge – Played 13 minutes, 0 points, 2 rebounds, 2 blocks
Jordan was 0-4 shooting combined. I have a feeling Jordan continues to play around the three point line (0-2 from three point range). At what point does Jordan become aware he isn’t a three point shooter? Or am I over reacting? Maybe a little.
Jeremy Olsen – Played 13 minutes, 12 points (6-8 from the field), 7 rebounds, 1 block
Once again, I am not fully aware of the level of competition Olsen was going against, but I would happily take that line every game from Olsen. That is some very efficient basketball.
The next game is against one of the pro teams in China, the Jiangsu Dragons.
