2020 G Patrick Jackson & 2020 SF Peyton Polk (Lumpkin County)- Jackson and Polk gave Lumpkin solid production on both ends in their win over Monroe Area on Monday. Jackson hit multiple 3’s early in the game, but changed his offensive approach as the game progressed. Monroe got in foul trouble quickly and Jackson used that to his advantage by initiating contact and getting to the free-throw line at will. Jackson has some speed and quickness with the ball that allowed him to penetrate the defense often and create lots of opportunities for the Indians. He was also an important piece on defense, forcing numerous turnovers with active hands and feet, and good anticipation.
After a few nice moments in the 1st half of this game, Polk turned it up a notch in the 2nd half. He showed a variety of offensive skills, stretching the floor with his shot, putting the ball on the floor, and finishing around the basket. At 6’6”, there weren’t many Monroe Area defenders who could matchup with him and he knew which of his tools to utilize in each situation. Although his offensive versatility was impressive, Polk was even better defensively and when rebounding.
