Jasen was not flawless Thursday.  He played flat-footed defensively much of the early evening.  Brooks power usually enjoys the benefit of plus lateral movement, placing him in front of dribblers.  Collierville’s guards broke by Brooks more than usual.  He did find big ways to contribute from the field.  Brooks hit some open shots.  His free throws showed off his shooting touch, a skill many extremely muscular young players like him do not have.  His ceiling remains high.  The court awareness defensively was beneath his own standard. "Our defense was poor," said Cleveland Head Coach Reggie Tucker.  Brooks was not the only player to suffer lapses, but he has historically done better.  Expect him to in the future.
