After a strong junior season with Jackson, 6-foot-1 guard Christian Liddell is hoping he can start to turn some more heads this summer.
One of the state’s best shooters, Liddell says he’s best at canning the long-ball. And mentioned that leadership has been something that he’s taken on recently, too.
“Mainly, what I like to focus on is scoring the ball from all three levels; I’m a really good shooter, but I can get to the hole, too. I’m a good leader, I like to make sure everyone is on the same page,” said Liddell.
“What I need to improve is being able to consistently score the ball more, and I need to be able to handle the ball and run the offense.”
As a junior with the Timberwolves, Liddell averaged 17 points, four rebounds and four assists per game.
“Coming back this year, I knew I had to be the leader of the team because I had the most experience. It was my first year being the top player, and I think I did well,” he said.
“Next year, I’m going to try and expand my role into more than just a shooter, but to where I can come off the ball and come off of pick-and-rolls and score more consistently.”
Now, as he heads in to a spring and summer season with North City 17U, Liddell is confident in his ability to earn some college interest. More than just the initial small school interest he’s already seen come his way.
“Mainly, I’m looking forward to showcase my talents in front of coaches, and being able to travel to different cities and just have fun and get my name out there,” said Liddell.
“And I want to make a name for myself, and just be able to know that I have (college) options going into my senior season.”
