#2. Trayce Jackson-Davis limits Rutgers’ big man, Omoruyi, to his first game with single-digit points this season
On Wednesday in a battle against another All-American, Armando Bacot, Trayce Jackson-Davis held the hindered big man to a measly 12 points on 40.0 percent shooting from the field and 10 rebounds in 28 minutes.
Yes, Bacot hurt his shoulder within the first few minutes of the game which definitely caused discomfort for the standout forward, but Jackson-Davis’ presence in the paint and ability to go at Bacot on the offensive side of the floor allowed the Hoosiers to flourish in the paint, outscoring the Tar Heels, 50-24.
Jackson-Davis was not 100 percent in this game for the Hoosiers either, and hopefully his two days off allowed him to rest up before another big matchup with a strong and improved big man like Clifford Omoruyi. TJD shows up for the Hoosiers yet again and limits Omoruyi to his first single-digit points performance of the season and outplays the frontcourt by himself.
