Jalen Suggs had a fantastic opening weekend in Grassroots play scoring nearly 24 points a game and shooting 64 percent from the field while pushing his team to a 3-1 start.  Jalen talked with Prep Hoops in Chicago. 

Jalen scored 23.5 points a game in Chicago last weekend making a ridiculous 64 percent of his field goals in four games including 8 of his 17 threes. Throw in 25 assists against nine turnovers and it was a hell of a weekend.

Over the weekend Suggs led Grassroots Sizzle to a 3-1 start in UAA play impressing all that watched.

"Our team looks strong, nobody cares who plays well as long as we win," Jalen said to Prep Hoops writers Scott Burgess and Ryan James. "Plus we have talent to shoot, defend, crash the glass, and just play hard we compliment each other really well.

“I am looking forward to having fun. Having fun is the biggest key. Having fun and playing hard. That is when we play well. Getting to know everybody and trying to make a run at these finals. I thought we should have got there last year. We had a tough loss in the qualifying game.”
