Tuesday evening, just four former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes in a NBA game. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from January 5.
Best of the Day: Anthony Davis
Some strong should performances from Patrick Beverly and Robert Covington but the “Best of the Day” goes Anthony Davis. He was all over the place in the Los Angeles Lakers win and filled out every major stat category.

The rest of the performances of the day:
- Patrick Beverly (Marshall/Clippers)- 33 minutes, 20 points, 7/10 FG, 6/9 3PT, an offensive rebound, 8 total rebounds, 8 assists, 2 blocks, a turnover, and +8 in a 116-113 loss to the Spurs.
- Robert Covington (Proviso West/Trail Blazers)- 37 minutes, 14 points, 5/10 FG, 4/9 3PT, an offensive rebound, 6 total rebounds, an assist, a steal, a block, and +6 in a 111-108 loss to the Bulls.
