LEWES, DELAWARE -- Just another night for Amityville center Jason Fraser.
The 6-10 defensive star also did some damage offensively last night against the LeBron James-led St. Vincent-St. Mary's basketball team.
Fraser scored 28 points, grabbed 18 rebounds, and blocked four shots to lead Amityville to a one-point win over James and St. Vincent-St. Mary High School of Akron, Ohio. Fraser also hit two of three three-pointers. "My back is feeling better," Fraser told us tonight. "It only feels fatigued after long stretches of play."
Fraser had injured his lower back in a game against St. Raymond's during the Diane Brenner Invitational at Fordham University.
James pumped in 39 points of his own. He hit a three-pointer, 28 feet from the basket, to help St. Vincent-St. Mary regain the lead. James was also fouled and hit a foul shot.
However, with 5.4 seconds left, and St. Vincent-St. Mary pressing fullcourt, Fraser inbounded the ball wisely. Fraser's pass led to a 2-on-1 fastbreak. A.J. Price was fouled. He converted the free throws for the win. "LeBron is a great player," Fraser said. "He is a great shooter. I was impressed."
Fraser, who is rivalshoops.com's number one ranked player, has continued his solid play in his senior season. He has signed a letter of intent with Villanova University.
Jay Wright had to be very happy after Fraser's performance last night at the Slam Dunk to the Beach. "All I want to do is win," Fraser said. "I am staying home tonight and getting myself ready for the next game."
Fraser's next game is against Wading River on January 3rd.
