Former Illinois Prep Athletes and their NBA Performances- January 11 Recap

Monday evening, six former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes in a NBA game. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from January 11.

Best of the Day: Richaun Holmes

I have talked about it before but Richaun Holmes‘ game is underrated. He’s consistent bringing the effort and nearly averaging a double-double. Holmes’ 6 blocks against the Pacer was a career-high. His previous career-best was 5 which came as a member of the Philadelphia 76er back in February 24, 2017.

  • Richaun Holmes (Lockport/Kings)- 36 minutes, 16 points, 6/11 FG, 1/1 3PT, 3/4 FT, 6 offensive rebounds, 10 total rebounds, 3 assists, a steal, 6 blocks, 3 turnovers, and +12 in a 127-122 win over the Pacers.

The rest of the performances of the day:

  • Abdel Nader (Niles North/Suns)- 3 minutes, 2 points, 2/2 FT, a rebound, an assist, and +2 in a 128-107 loss to the Wizards. This was Nader’s season debut.
  • Jevon Carter (Proviso East/Suns)- 17 minutes, 6 points, 3/8 FG, 0/3 3PT, an assist, 2 blocks, -18 in a 128-107 loss to the Wizards.
  • JaVale McGee (Franciscan/Cavaliers)- 16 minutes, 6 points, 2/7 FG, 0/1 3PT, 2/2 FT, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 blocks, a turnover, and +4 in a 101-91 loss to the Grizzlies.
  • Robert Covington (Proviso West/Trail Blazers)- 34 minutes, 2/9 FG, 1/8 3PT, 2/2 FT, an offensive rebound, 8 total rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, 2 turnovers, and +4 in a 112-111 win over the Raptors.
  • Fred VanVleet (Auburn/Kings)- 37 minutes, 10 points, 4/13 FG, 2/7 3PT, 6 assists, a steal, 3 turnovers, and -2 in a 112-11 loss to the Trail Blazers.
