The spring has been one of change for Jett Sheng. The shifty 5-foot-9, 130-pound point guard from Catlin Gabel started the AAU circuit with the Rose City Rebels 16U squad but has recently made the shift to Oregon Basketball Club, where he played up in the 17U division with the Blue team.
“My experience with the Rose City Rebels was a good competitive environment,” Sheng said. “But being here at OBC they let me play free and I feel like it’s been really helpful with my game. I’m playing up a level too.”
Sheng is a quick point guard who plays with a sense of confidence on the floor. He can shoot the three, but also get to the basket. And as he gets stronger and physically matures, he’ll be able to finish even more plays than he currently does.
“I’ve been getting to the basket really good and my finishing has gotten a lot better,” Sheng said. “I have free reign to pull up and shoot it, and while I feel like I had that already in my bag already, it’s been getting better.”
Sheng also recently participated in the Oregon High Academic Showcase at Lewis & Clark and indicated that some of the college coaches there were in contact with his OBC coaches. Like most every young player his dream is play at the Division I level. “Not everybody gets that luxury but if I did, that would be amazing,” Sheng said. “I just want to play basketball.”
There are still two more years to go for Sheng so right now he’s just focused on playing with his OBC teammates for the rest of the summer. “Just to play and get better,” Sheng said. “Have a really good tournament in Vegas and then just keep going into high school season.”
