Former Illinois Prep Athletes and their NBA Performances- February 16 Recap

Tuesday evening, six former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes in a NBA game. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from February 16.

Best of the Day: Robert Covington

Went with Covington as the “Best of the Day” because of his obscure state line that also included no turnovers.

  • Robert Covington (Proviso West/Trail Blazers)- 37 minutes, 6 points, 2/7 FG, 2/5 3PT, 2 offensive rebounds, 9 total rebounds, 5 assists, 6 blocks, and +7 in a 115-104 win over the Thunder.

The rest of the performances of the day:

  • Isaiah Roby (Dixon/Thunder)- 24 minutes, 11 points, 4/6 FG, 0/1 3PT, 3/4 FT, 2 offensive rebounds, 10 total rebounds, 2 assists, a block, a turnover, and +6 in a 115-104 loss to the Trail Blazers. He lead the team with 10 rebounds and also had himself a double-double.
  • Fred VanVleet (Auburn/Raptors)- 39 minutes, 33 points, 12/22 FG, 5/12 3PT, 4/6 FT, an offensive rebound, 4 total rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, 4 turnovers, and +16 in a 124-113 win over the Bucks.
