LEWES, DELAWARE -- J.J. Redick, 6-4, Cave Spring H.S., Roanoke, Va. Coming into this game, I viewed Redick as a one dimensional shooter type after seeing him mainly with the Boo Williams AAU program.
This game proved once again why it's important to also see kids in their "natural" high school setting, as the Duke bound Redick displayed a terrific and well rounded game in a 65-63 loss to Oxon Hill.
Redick did a little bit of eveything in this game -- he scored 29 points, collected seven assists and had the crowd buzzing every time he touched the ball late in the contest. He nearly sent everyone in a frenzy until his desperation heave at the buzzer rimmed out.
Redick signed with Duke this past Fall and is a likely McDonald's All American candiate. The game will be played next March at Madison Square Garden. Redick will likely have a lot of voting support. We will continue to keep you posted on his performance here at the Slam Dunk to the Beach.
