Former Illinois Prep Athletes and their NBA Performances- February 27 Recap

Saturday evening, five former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes in a NBA game. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from February 27.

Best of the Day: Isaiah Roby

Dixon’s Isaiah Roby was the only one of the five players to lose but he had one of the better/intriguing performances of the night.

  • Isaiah Roby (Dixon)- 28 minutes, 15 points, 5/10 FG, 1/3 3PT, 4/5 FT, 9 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, 6 turnovers, and +2 in a 126-96 loss to the Jazz.

The rest of the performances of the day:

  • JaVale McGee (Franciscan/Cavaliers)- 16 minutes, 6 points, 2/5 FG, 2/2 FT, 3 rebounds, an assist, 2 blocks, a turnover, and +4 in a 112-109 win over the 76ers.

  • Keita Bates-Diop (University/Spurs)- 8 minutes, 3 personal fouls, and +7 in a 117-114 win over the Pelicans.
  • Derrick Rose (Simeon/Knicks)- 38 minutes, 17 points, 6/11 FG, 1/3 3PT, 4/4 FT, a game-high 11 assists, 4 steals, 4 turnovers, and +11 in a 110-107 win over the Pacers. This is his first double-double since January 22, 2020 when he had one in a win against the Sacramento Kings.

  • Jalen Brunson (Stevenson/Mavericks)- 27 minutes, 14 points, 6/11 FG, 1/4 FG, 1/2 FT, 3 rebounds, an assist, 2 steals, and +6 in a 115-98 win over the Nets.
