Portsmouth Invitational Tournament: Day Four
April 14, 2008
After an average showing in the first two games, JaJuan Smith saved his best performance for last at the PIT. Smith nearly recorded a triple-double in Cherry, Berkaert & Holland’s 94-80 win, registering 17 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists. As was the case in his previous two games, Smith did the majority of his work from beyond the arc where he was 3-11 on Saturday. He shows a smooth stroke, able to connect in both spot up situations or off the dribble; however he does have a tendency to force tough shots and rush otherwise good looks from the perimeter. Smith was also able to knock down a pair of pull up jumpers from mid-range, and while he looked very fluid in these situations, his ball handling abilities need to improve in order for him to be anything more than a catch and shoot threat at a higher level of competition.

Smith did improve his rebounding and assist numbers in this final game. Despite being only 6’2”, he has pretty good length and is very aggressive on the glass at both ends of the floor (4 of his 10 rebounds were offensive). Though he isn’t a major threat to beat defenders off the dribble, Smith did do a solid job of getting into the lane and distributing the basketball to his teammates. As a 6’2” shooting guard with only average handles and explosiveness at best, it will be tough for Smith to break through to the professional level unless some considerable improvements are made.
