Trevor Lacey In Alabama’s First Scrimmage

Alabama's 5 star basketball phenom, Trevor Lacey (#3), practiced in the first scrimmage of the 2011-12 season. This video has highlights of what happened. He did ok, but he looked much like most new freshmen that step up to the next level. He had some issues in shot selection & play, but there were also some bright spots with a nice alley oop to a teammate, a steal, & a nice lay-up. However, he did not look spectacular in his initial practice.

The hype level on this kid was out of this world, so anything short of Michael Jordan-esque play is a let-down. Cutting the kid a break however, he has talent. There is no doubt there. He will grow and improve as he learns what is expected of him from his demanding coach, Anthony Grant.

I remember watching a young Latrell Sprewell back when he was in one of his first practices for Alabama. The scrimmage was actually in Gadsden. He looked like nothing special at the time, but eventually ended up being a first round NBA pick & All-Star (and a "thug" if you ask ex-Warriors coach P. J. Carlesimo). So you never know. He may be a future star. Time will tell. Right now, he's a freshman. Plain to see.

Check out the video. Keep in mind Lacey (#3) is a work in progress, not a finished Picasso.
