Thursday evening, just one former Illinois prep athlete saw minutes in various NBA games. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from December 30.
Best of the Day: Admiral Schofield
Admiral Schofield (Zion-Benton Township) may have won the ‘Best of the Day’ by default but his work ethic and contributions should not go unnoticed. The Zion-Township grad was a force in high school and one of the best players in college while at Tennessee. Another cool fact was that he was born in London, England.
Stilling need extra players, Schofield signed a second 10-day contract with the Orlando Magic back on December 27.
- Admiral Schofield (Zion-Benton Township/Orlando Magic)- 18 minutes, 8 points, 4/7 FG, 0/3, an offensive rebounds, 6 total rebounds, 2 assists, a turnover, in a 136-118 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. His 8 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assist all tie season highs.
Schofield was also a guest on a Orlando Magic Pod Squad. Give it a listen, here.
