Former Illinois Prep Athletes and their NBA Performances- January 24 Recap

Sunday 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 24.

Best Of The Day: Isaiah Roby

A loss is never fun but anytime a younger player can reach a personal accolade, it should be celebrated. Isaiah Roby had his first career double-double last night after a 10 point-10 rebound game.

  • Isaiah Roby (Dixon/Thunder)- 26 minutes, 10 points, 5/10 FG, 0/2 3PT, 3 offensive rebounds, 10 total rebounds, 3 assists, a steal, and -10 in a 108-100 loss to the Clippers.

The rest of the performances of the day:

  • Robert Covington (Proviso West/Trail Blazers)- 28 minutes, 4 points, 1/7 FG, 0/6 3PT, 2/2 FT, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks, and +8 in a 116-113 win over the Knicks.

  • Keita Bates-Diop (University/Spurs)- 3 minutes, 0/1 FG, an assist, and +0 in a 121-101 win over the Wizards.
  • JaVale McGee (Franciscan/Cavaliers)- 15 minutes, 11 points, 5/10 FG, 0/1 3PT, 1/4 FT, 6 rebounds, an assist, a steal, 2 blocks, and -10 in 141-103 loss to the Celtics. His days in Cleveland are ending soon as he’s been tied to many trade rumors.

  • Patrick Beverly (Marshall/Clippers)- 13 minutes, 7 points, 2/7 FG, 1/5 3PT, 2/2 FT, an offensive rebound, 4 total rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and +8 in a 108-100 win over the Thunder.

  • Fred VanVleet (Auburn/Raptors)- 41 minutes, 21 points, 6/15 FG, 4/9 3PT, 5/5 FT, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, a block, 3 turnovers, and +12 in 107-102 win over the Pacers.
