The state of Utah has sent dozens of players to junior college these past few years. This article will highlight some of the top performers that were in action this last weekend from players from Utah that are playing junior college.
AJ Hodges (South Puget Sounds CC) The former Murray High star had a huge weekend as he averaged 24 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in two wins. The combo guard is able to score in the paint and also from the perimeter.
Taylor Marteliz (Lane CC) The former Kearns star had a great first game as he had 17 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and he didn't miss a shot. He spent last year at NJCAA Western Wyoming and is looking to have a big year to prove he is a 4-year player.
Kur Kuath (Salt Lake CC) has proven thus far this season he is one of the best big man in all of junior college basketball. In two wins he averaged nearly 16 points, 6 rebounds and 3 blocks per game. Kuath plays well above the rim and also can step out and knock down pick and pop jumpers.
Tyus Jefferson (Treasure Valley CC) had an big-time weekend against top notch talent. The former Herriman grad averaged 24 points, 7 assists and 5 steals in games versus USU-Eastern and the College of Southern Idaho. This quick guard can be a difference maker at the 4-year level.
Neema Namdar (USU Eastern) The former Alta star averaged 14 points and 5 rebounds in going 1-1 this weekend. He is a deadly outside shooter that is a sophomore after playing one year at D1 Southern Utah.
Peyton Christman (SW Oregon) the quick guard is a deadly outside shooter as the sophomore at 18 points in big win. He is coming off a huge freshman season and I think he can help a NAIA team for his final two years of eligibility
