What’s this kids biggest area that needs improvement? He looks like a very solid overall player on film and kinda reminds me of joe Johnson but wanted to hear someone’s take that watches him locally



Not so much recently but not long ago he would play a little out of control. Meaning, when he clearly wasn't hitting that night, he would still jack up shots like crazy. Like he would end up with 21 points but on like 24 shots. That hasn't really happened as much recently.

Wade obviously wont let a guy out there continue to fire up 3's and miss them all night long if it's not there in the first several attempts. I get missing a few then continuing to fire to make up for it, kind of like Edwards vs. ole miss. But it's 1 thing to jack up 3-4 misses and continuing to fire vs. jacking up 5, then 6, then 7 and missing almost all of them and continuing to fire away. That's when you have to recognize it's not your night and try and get involved in other ways.

He's also not a pure PG, but he will definitely be a part of that 2 PG rotation we'll now have between him, Waters and Mays.

re: Ja'Vonte Smart playing like a 6-star recently
Talking years ago when this current group of Seniors were Sophs.
Barely just lost to Madison Prep in away game by 6 a week ago - not losing the rest of the season and will roll into Lake Charles.
Smart is a great player but his team is young, has no height and lacks the outside shooting and depth that St Paul's has this season.
And St Paul's has a new head coach from 2 seasons ago too.

Wait what? This team just like all Scotlandville teams from the past can bury you from 3. Even when they had Damian Jones and Bridgewater, they could kill you from outside.

depth

Carlos Sample can run a 7 man rotation with this team but I've also seen them blow out solid teams by playing just 5.

No - great player but 1 guy on the court is not all it takes

Will be much closer than people think. Scotlandville has a really great team but so does St Paul's

St Paul's played top out of state competition and Madison Prep. District may not be as strong overall as the Catholic League but St Paul's did win the CYO.
And right now, St Paul's is blowing opponents out by over 30 points getting tuned up for the playoffs.
Just from what I am seeing, St Paul's rolls right into the finals against Scotlandville and it will be a toss up who wins that game.

Well, Javonte continues to be en fuego. He dropped 48/14/7 against Zachary then he put up 50/8/8 against Denham Springs. Kids playing outta his mind.

Yes. He's signed and is at most of the home games. He's ready to get on the court

re: Ja'Vonte Smart playing like a 6-star recently
I watched a TELIVISED hs game that Mays played in at Findlay Prep or wherever he went and he was the layziest guy I’ve ever seen on a basketball court. That obviously changed once he got to college and I expect Smart to do the same

McKinley may end his high school career before St Paul's gets the chance to send him off to LSU with a loss .....
