D’Courtland Christian’s #BamaJam Day One Quick-Hitters

The HoopSeen Bama Jam has tipped off and there are a lot of teams with a lot of talent in the field. Bringing in teams from all over the south such as Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and, of course, Alabama. This event featured some top-ranked prospects and others on the rise. Let's take a look at the action from the Finley Center on Friday night.


Team Grind’s Julius Clark was one of the first players that stood out on the first day. This 6-foot-6 forward put up some easy numbers for his first game. During the regular season at Mountain Brook he was mainly working the paint but on Friday night he showed that his game is truly versatile. Clark was attacking the rim with ease leaving defenders in the dust. He hit a couple of threes to put his team over the edge during crutch time. Clark ended with 25 points after only putting up four points in the first half. He is showing why he will be a top-ranked prospect next season in the state of Alabama.


Alabama was represented well on Friday at the Bama Jam. Iron City plays as a team and always looking for the easy basket. Iron City is all about defense, constantly causing turnovers and getting an easy score. They all crash the boards fighting for rebounds, and they handled their business on their first game out against Montgomery fire winning 78-61. Rising star CJ Blount, a 6-foot-two PG led his team with 25 points, dished out four assists and working hard defensively grabbing three steals. Demarcus Lacey, 6-foot-2 guard also had a great game putting up 19 points and snagging 10 rebounds. Jason Griffin also contributed with 19 points and 11 rebounds. This team is loaded with talent, be on the lookout for Iron City Huskies.
