After a lackluster performance on ESPNU earlier in the week, 2013 PF Julius Randle bounced back with an impressive performance at the AAU National Championships in Orlando on Saturday. Randle scored a team-high 26 points, and according to Rivals’ Corey Albertson, scored at will:
By waiting for his chances to face up and attack the basket, but first getting position in the paint by using his physicality, Randle was able to score at will with his skilled barrage of spin moves and hook shots. With his power and extra effort Randle was all over the glass from start to finish, and that extra effort led to him spending a lot of time at the foul line. Randle still showed that he can handle the ball in the full-court, but he didn’t force the issue.
Here’s some footage of Randle at the Peach Jam, where he battled Andrew Wiggins:
Randle is in the process of narrowing his list of schools to five, with UK, Kansas, Duke, Carolina, and Florida considered to be the favorites to make the cut.
