Jaquan showed off his court vison, and stellar passing and scoring ability all day, helping to lead his team to a huge win in their second game, by racking up 12 points and 7 assists. In regards to his play, Jaquan commented “I played well at the Combine but could have been more aggressive taking shots.” The future is bright for Jaquan Carlos and he is a player to watch as he goes into high school next year.
