Jai Lucas had an on-and-off game for his team, dishing out some nice passes on drives-and-dishes and pick-and-rolls in the first half, while also scoring on some nice floaters in the lane and making good use of his crossover move. But in the second half, Lucas tried a few pull-up jumpers missing from mid and long range.

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 didn’t 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 didn’t really dominate the ball here, deferring to his teammates at times, so he wasn’t consistently creating offense himself.

Another player that would be lights out a top prospect if he was a few inches taller. Like his brother, Lucas uses his quickness to get himself into spaces where he can get his shot off. Lucas is deadly with his runners and floaters as well as his pull-up jumpers. His outside shooting is good when he’s set for the shot, but if forced to the quick release it tends to flatten out. Lucas seems to have a good passing eye, but his team relies so heavily on him for scoring he wasn’t able to show it off more.
