Zep Jasper is the fourth of seven "first ballot" members of the All AugBball Team.
Statistics like points per game don't always tell the story. I watched and reported on countless games last season, and I would bet more times than not I left out the leading scorer details. But I always include video footage supporting my analysis about the factors deciding the ultimate statistic: wins.

November 11, at Tubman at 1:30 P.M.
He made threes, made sure his teammates got the ball in the right places, and scored when needed all season long. And if there were a statistic for managing your team's possessions late in the fourth quarter, handling the ball while your team is leading, using the clock, and scoring when the defense lapses, his rating would be off the chart.
Here is a tweet and video clip from an early overtime home win over then defending state champion Morgan County. Like he did all season, Jasper scored when needed, this time with Laney nursing a lead and holding off a Morgan County run.
Until someone comes up with a better measurement for offensive responsibility, I'll trust my eyes when it comes to Zep. They tell me he is the best point guard I know for getting his team the highest number in the only category that matters: the number of wins.After MorganCo cut Laney's lead to 2, Zep Jasper answered w this dagger of a FT line pull-up off 1on1 action! http://t.co/Nuf7TrMdmq— Chad Cook's AugBball (@AugBball) November 30, 2014
