    Jiri has great first day at Portsmouth

    DraftExpress: Portsmouth Invitational Tournament Recap (Day One)

    Jiri Hubalek might have had the best game of his entire career—scoring 27 points to go along with 10 rebounds, and 3 assists on 10-19 shooting. Everything was dropping for him, be it spot-up 3-pointers, mid-range jumpers, crafty layups off the glass after sharp cuts to the hoop, put-backs after offensive rebounds (some his own), or basic back to the basket moves around the paint. He had 18 points in the first half alone, on 7-9 shooting, but cooled off a bit after that. As impressive as he was with his extremely confident display and undoubtedly high skill level, you’ll have to excuse us for being a bit skeptical considering that he only averaged 12 points per game playing for an awful team in the Big 12 this year. Maybe he can keep this up, though…you never know.

    With Jiri's quickness he could do very well in the more open NBA. He seemed to be frustrated when things got congested and teams packed it in. They can't do that in the 1 on 1 NBA game...

    That is good news.

    Too bad he didn't put up numbers like that for ISU.

    Difficult to average better than 12 on a slow down team that only has about 50-60 points for the whole team each game.

    Re: Jiri has great first day at Portsmouth

    Isn't harder to put up numbers on a cruddy team? He was double-teamed in about every game, the writer is a few marbles short upstairs...

    Re: Jiri has great first day at Portsmouth

    On great teams the scoring is usually a bit more spread out, for example Kansas.

    Good luck to Jiri though, I hope he can continue to impress. I loved his game.

    Thanks for the update! I hope he gets a shot somewhere. I am sure he will at least get a shot back in the Czech Republic if nowhere else.

    Since there was no outside shooting, the other teams we're able to pack it in around the post. I think Jiri would have been a lot more effective on a team that had a couple outside shooters.

    Re: Jiri has great first day at Portsmouth

    Great news! I agree with other comments made about how it's harder to score on lower tier teams. Had Jiri been on a better all around team he might have been a lot more effective in college.

    But this may point to more downside risk next year... if we are losing a potential NBA player in Jiri and Clark, who's was a perfect role/team player, for some freshmen..... then what?

    Just hope another year increases maturity and the cohesiveness of our remaining players plus the great German can make up for the losses and we will see improvement. I believe!
