On Sunday, Justin Carter led his No Way Classic summer league team to the semifinals that will be played on Friday night. In a 79-76 victory, Justin had 25 pts on 8/21 shooting, 12 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals in 28 minutes.
Today I received an e-mail from his Summer League coach Jeff Logan. Here were his comments on Justin:
I am the coach of Entertainment Tonite, Justin plays on the team and has had an exceptional summer. We started the playoffs this past weekend. Saturday he posted 20 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assist and 3 steals…Sunday he had 25 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assist and 4 steals. I have talked with a couple of NBA scouts that were at the two games and they were very impressed with him and gave compliments to his overall game.
Justin is able to play the 1-2-3 positions and actually is my best defensive player and post player. In the game Sunday, we played against Demar Derozan, who is headed to USC and ranked on NBADraft.net as the possible #3 pick in next year’s draft. Demar had 40 points, but down the stretch Justin frustrated him and forced him into some bad shots.
Justin is a hard worker and a good guy to be around. Very mild mannered and easy going, but between the line is a very fierce competitor.
Some very nice words and exciting to hear. This Jays team is shaping up on paper to look pretty exciting.
