Turtle Jackson Posts Solid Numbers

in the recent Chick Fil-A Classic held in Columbia, S.C.

On Friday, December 19, UGA signee Turtle Jackson scored 21 points against Hillcrest High of Simpsonville, South Carolina.  Jackson was an efficient 5 of 8 from the floor, 1 of 2 from behind the arc, and 10 of 12 from the line.  You want your point guard to be able to shoot free throws, and Jackson is solid there.  Jackson also garnered 7 boards, to go along with 2 assists and 3 steals.

Jackson led his team to victory against Richland Northeast (Columbia, S.C.) in the following game, held Saturday, December 20.  Although Jackson did not shoot as well (7 of 19 from the floor overall), he went 4 of 7 from deep and 3 of 3 at the free throw line, scored 21 points total, and corralled 6 rebounds and dished 5 assists.

Can't remember a UGA team with three good options at point guard.  We'll be set there next year.  Would have been nice to successfully recruit Tevin Mack.  He had 43, 27 and 32 points in his three outings in the tournament.

Can we close out with a solid big man or a wing?
