Meet Jamaal Trice
This 6-5, 180 pound, shooting guard flew under the radar because of his unselfish play. He is known as a pure shooter and a great defender. His coach, Gary McKnight, said, “We had about eight Division-I players last year. And he was our best defender.” Jamaal considers himself a driver and should fit in well, because he loves the running style that UConn uses. He has surprising athleticism and can play above the rim. He can create his own shot with a tremendous first step and is a solid glue-like defender. He has a jack-of-all-trades mentality and doesn’t shy away from contact in the paint.
