Impressive night for JMM on 14 of 15 shooting including 1 trey.
I still think one of the primary takeaways with JMM in high school is he moves well with the ball. He could be a solid 4 for us if he puts on muscle. The highlights on Fox59 tonight made him look impressive. I think he's getting better from the little I've seen of him.
He will be solid defensively and possesses passing ability as well. Displayed a nice jump-hook tonight and has ability to score with either hand. He actually shot 15 of 16, after missing his first shot.
He will be an excellent addition next year, can see him as a true four as he matures and gets stronger.
Sounds like he performed well against Trayce Jackson Davis tonight.

The Star won't let me read the article unless I purchase a subscription. What did it say about Malloy and his stats?
I thought JMM got the better of Davis but in fairness he had much more help. Carmel is a much better all around but JMM is a defensive gem. We landed a good one. Davis is the go to guy for Center Grove where as JMM can depend on others to score.

They played to a stalemate. Carmel's supporting cast stepped up and that was the difference. You are not missing anything.
Judge for yourself on the CG Sports Network. Replay is available.
I wonder if his rankings will budge in light of this performance. It is pretty funny to look at his 247 ranking history where he was 157 when we offered and how it has plummeted since he verbally committed.

Davis was limited to 1 rebound and forced into 6 turnovers including 2 steals by JMM. Davis had 2 blocks and connected on 4 of 6 shooting while hitting 4 of 8 FTs with no assists. JMM shot 4 of 10 and 2 of 4 FTs while gathering 6 boards and 2 assists. He did have 1 turnover.
JMM outplayed Davis last Friday night. Andrew Owens stepped it up along with others to get the win. As far as rankings go I will go back to my original comment last year.
You should not put any faith into these rankings. After someone commits and your out of the top 50 or so it truly isn't a good reading on the player. If you truly want a look at the player watch him play a game. The kid from Texas Tech appears to be going in the first round of the draft and was rated 240 +- in rankings last year.
JMM full potential will not be realized until he grows into his body. Can't wait to see what he looks like after the new strength coach gets ahold of him. Big guys take longer. JMM has a unique skill set for a big. Can't wait to see him on the court at Butler!!!!!
A couple of items that truly standout about JMM is an ability to constantly provide screens for his teammates, along with his defensive footwork. In those regards he is well ahead of the curve for a big.
He's got a pretty good shooting touch as well...I think we'll be pleasantly surprised, and I'd love to see a RS next year to give him a year with this strength & conditioning and get up to speed. We will have Nze, Golden and Brunk ahead of him.
JMM had 17 points and 21 rebounds in a 71-56 win for Carmel over Cathedral tonight.
Zionsville (Isiah Thompson - Purdue Recruit) 61 - Carmel 66
Center Grove (Trayce Jackson-Davis - IU Recruit) 37 - Carmel 47
Cathedral (Arman Franklin - IU Recruit) 56 - Carmel 71
The above named players are all ranked above JMM, but the outcomes speak for themselves. The Carmel system doesn't highlight individual players like some others do and JMM seems to care more about winning than individual stats. While he has a good supporting cast, it isn't remarkably better than what the players listed above have. There are a lot of reasons to be much more excited about him than the national rankings would indicate. The biggest is that he is a team first guy, a winner, and someone whose best basketball is still 2-3 years away as his body develops.
Battle and Mulloy on the list.
