Jai Lucas had a pretty solid showing here at the first practice, with father and former NBA player John Lucas
Jr. looking on. Jai Lucas
was easily the smallest player on the court today, being shorter and less muscularly built than all of the other All-Americans, but it didnt stop him from playing his game. Lucas handles the ball well and does a good job controlling the tempo, moving in and out of the defense while showing excellent court vision and good passing instincts. His more impressive assists were precision passes to cutters going through the lane, though he also did some scoring himself, showing off a smooth, quick release on his jump shot, which he hit from mid and long-range. Lucas didnt really dominate the ball here, deferring to his teammates at times, so he wasnt consistently creating offense himself.
