It was fun watching Christian dominate,. 4 blx that I counted (they credited him with 2), 15 rebounds, altered many shots or deterred the very idea of driving the lane. 3-3 from the field, with that one really sweet up and under move on the ONE entry pass he got.

But that team would be frustrating to watch on a regular basis. 21 turnovers. Their "star" SG (247 5*) was 5-15 from the floor. 19% from 3. 55% from FT. Oy.

He moves and transitions well. Once he learns to provide a target with his hands better, he will get more entry passes and where he can score more easily.

Games like that are why some of us don't think recruiting stars tell the whole story. Fermin might have more if he had a point guard like Ace to feed him the ball.

Christian finishes with 14 and 9. FG: 6-8, FT: 2-3; 4 OR; 5 DR; 9 TR; 2 assists.

#2 player in the class, Emoni Bates was 4-15, 13 points, 5 rebounds, 9 assists.

Fermin has a ton to learn. Sort of gives up on a rebound when he gets boxed out instead of fighting through/around it.

But goodness there is tons of potential there.

14 pts 9 caroms. Really nice post up and turnaround jumper in the second half. Presents a low wide base when receiving the entry pass.
