Jordan Theodore News and Interview

Sal and I had the pleasure of watching Paterson Catholic play Linden High School this afternoon at SHU seated in media row at halfcourt. From this vantage point we got an excellent chance to both watch and critique the play of SHU recruit Jordan Theodore, a 5-11 165 LB junior combo guard.

Theodore's team lost a thrilling game in overtime to the Tigers as Darrell Lampley hit a side jumper from the arc at the buzzer to secure a three point win.

Lampley was voted his team's MVP, and Theodore took home the award for Patterson Catholic.

The unofficial scoring in the media had Theodore with 20 points and 5 assists.

As far as projecting Theodore's game at the next level I will offer a few points.

1. He is lighting quick and has the ability to penetrate at will, although at times he does play a little bit out of control. He has a killer crossover and with it can get into the lane and create or score from there.

2. He did not shoot well in this game, but he has improved his shot greatly from just a few months ago. In fact I was speaking to John Morton who has seen him play a few times recently and noted that he has been shooting well from the arc with consistency.
