Video Highlights from BJ Young's 2nd Game Back

After missing Arkansas' first game due to suspension, BJ Young came back against Longwood and to score 23 points in a 112-63 route against what looks to be once of the worst teams in D1. His second game was against Florida A&M last night, another blowout, which had Arkansas winning 89-60.

Mike Anderson's style of play is hitting stride in his second year, thanks to the depth provided by the 9 new faces on Arkansas' roster. Anderson has been rotating a lot of bodies and Young has only played a combined 45 minutes so far. They have been running at every chance they get and Young has gotten plenty of easy looks on the break. In the halfcourt, Young has looked to facilitate this year even though he technically starts the game at the SF spot.

So far, Young has looked solid in the small sample size. Arkansas runs a lot of pick and roll sets in halfcourt and Young has a good feel on how to attack it. He will never be a point guard, but showing combo guard skills is necessary for his NBA future. Some see Young as a lottery pick this year, while I am less bullish. He has the potential, but has a lot more learning to do.

Check the video below for highlights from last night - he had 12 points on 4-12 shooting while dishing out 3 assists. He only took one 3-pt which he missed, as he got most of his opportunities near the rim. He struggled to convert in the paint last night.
