Former Illinois Prep Athletes and their NBA Performances- January 4 Recap

Monday evening, 10 former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes in a NBA game. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from January 4.

Best of the Day: Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose is often referred to as one of the biggest what if’s” in NBA. Rightfully so! He was the youngest NBA MVP in history and unfortunately suffered to big knee injuries. Despite all of this, he’s found a way to carve out a overall solid career and has brought some veteran leadership to some young teams over the last few years. Monday, the Pistons fell short but Rose did have a 24-2-8-1 game in just 25 minutes.

  • Derrick Rose (Simeon/Pistons)- 25 minutes, 24 points, 9/18 FG, 2/4 3PT, 4/4 FT, 2 rebounds, 8 assists, a steal, and +4 in a 125-115 loss to the Bucks
