The Pacific Roster

The Players to Watch for Pacific

Jeremiah Bailey 6-6 203.0 Forward

Jeremiah Bailey sports a 30.1 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. He is among the best in the conference and even in the country as far as his on-the-court contributions. Definitely, a player to watch and opponents will have him scouted. Few teams have a player like him to take on that much of the workload.

Offensive Breakdown

Jeremiah Bailey attempted 0.556% of his shots from three point range. He is considered one of the more frequent three point shooters in the conference. He made 0.4% of his three point shots fired this season. He is considered an above-average three point shooter and a threat who must be contained on the perimeter. Jeremiah Bailey shot 0.75% inside the perimeter. He gets his work done inside the restricted arc and has shown a strong ability to finish at the rim while showing great restraint to avoid less optimal shots. He is among the most efficient in his ability to score. As a shooter regardless of where he is, he makes something damaging happen for opponents.

You can expect him to crash the boards on a consistent basis on the offensive end, his success is better than most. His ability to distribute the ball to his teammates is on-par with others in College Basketball. He is a turnover prone player and he is a target for defenses. Playing more physical against him or making sure to jump his passes may be a good idea.

Defensive Breakdown

Jeremiah Bailey has shown that he may be an elite defensive player going into this season and the expectation is that it should not change. He does not put an effort to attacking the glass and pulling down rebounds. He is not a shot blocker. An aggressive defender who is among the best at successfully forcing live ball turnovers in every which way. He learned the Art of the Steal.

Pierre Crockrell II 6-0 165.0 Guard

Pierre Crockrell II has a 25.5 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. There is potential for much more this season than his campaign this season.

This season, when shots were missed, Pierre Crockrell II is certainly not there to help his team get a second chance opportunity.He is a stronger distributor than most that is for sure, but he is not among the elite. He is among the best in the country at not turning the ball over.

Defensive Breakdown

Pierre Crockrell II has shown that he may be an elite defensive player going into this season and the expectation is that it should not change.
