Sherrill Drops 37 in GRU's Opening Win

Returning Peach Belt Conference Freshman of the Year Keshun Sherrill exploded for 37 points and led his GRU Jags' to an impressive 75-62 win over regional rival Anderson in the first of two PBC/SAC Challenge games this weekend at Christenberry Fieldhouse.  The Jaguars face Brevard at 5:00 P.M. Saturday.

The more I've gotten back to watching a lot of college basketball (sounds crazy but 99% of what I've watched for years has been high school hoops), the more I am remembering the huge difference in the level of play.  I know that sounds ridiculously obvious.  But this has struck me nonetheless.  The Jags and the Oklahoma Sooners have been the two most impressive teams that I have tracked so far.

Sherrill is dynamic.  His 37 points were all in the flow of the game and all very fun to watch.  He makes threes, pull-ups, floaters, and clutch shots;  and he gets steals, rebounds, and assists while taking good care of the ball and getting others involved.  And teammates Devon Wright Nelson, Keith Crump, D'Angelo Boyce and Devonte Thomas round out a five man group that can all score from deep, get to the basket, and finish.

So if you are in town, go see the Jags at 5:00 P.M. as they face Brevard and attempt to go 2-0 to begin the 2014-15 season.

I selected clips from the second half of Friday's game and shared them below.  Stay tuned for Jags news.  And if you can't make today's game and want to watch online, or if you just want to know how to get all the Jags news your heart desires, frequent the following cyber places:
