I think that is a fair and legit question. Not too long ago his 3 point shooting percentage was not all that good. The 50 points is a wildly crazy achievement but how does his overall game translate to playing in the MVC? I understand your point...particularly when there does not appear too much attention being given by D-1 schools. Triston's brother, Juwan, a two time player of the year in El Paso, had very little interest as well.

My biggest concern is their lack of elevation on their shot...but I am no scout. I do know that I trust Coach McCarty and his staff. When Bruce Webber was coaching SIU he recruited a bunch of players nobody else wanted and had great success. Time will tell....

I have no idea of the level of competition, but Tristen's team lost the game.

I was wondering to. They are a 5A school in a city of 683000 . I would think the competition may be good. Early season games so might have been a little weak as they have lost their last 2 to have a record of 5-2

If Tristen is the better of the 2 I would definitely take him, I think Jawuan could end up being a really great player for us, I already think he is one of our better defenders, I thinks it's 4 years players like Juwan and Tristen that help build programs.

I agree. Jawaun is getting better game by game, and you can tell that coach has a lot of confidence in him. Would love to have Tristen, too. However, as some have said, I would like to see them develop more elevation on their jump shots. I don't think Jawaun is getting the ball away from 3 like he was accustomed to in high school.

It appears they are regionally pretty strong in their division, which suggests something.

They are also ranked 16th in 5-A in Texas' 6-class system. That wouldn't be chopped liver.
