BJ Young vs Jahii Carson Video Highlights

Because who honestly wouldn't want to see highlights of two of the most dynamic guards in the country against each other?

BJ Young scored 29 points, barely missing his career high of 31 he set against Florida last year. He did most of his work in the first 3 quarters of the game before Arizona State slowly distanced themselves. Young did a great job of picking his spots in this game. He made some nice cuts off the ball, slashed to the paint, and displayed excellent body control to finish inside. Young has no trouble scoring in the halfcourt setting.

Carson had 19, which was actually the second lowest scoring game of his short 5 game career. He has led an Arizona State attack that is much more of a up and down team than the Herb Sendek teams of the past. Sendek has always been an underated coach and I applaud him for changing his style to suit his players. Sendek has never sought acknowledgement and has put aside his ego to also higher two great assistant coaches with NBA coaching experience. Big moves for Jahii Carson's development.
Carson has been a joy to watch so far and is averaging 21 points on 48% shooting. He is always in attack mode and aggressively uses pick and rolls. He has a natural ability to get to the basket and elite athleticism to boot. Carson will have to work on balancing out his game as the season goes on to be less turnover prone and more of a facilitator, but he's off to a great start on the year. He can shoot alright too - he's hit 6-13 threes and is 37-49 from the charity stripe. Oddly enough, 2 of those 12 misses have been airballs from the line.
