More on Jake Layman and the USA U18 team


Well, the USA won all five games and took the gold medal! The final game was a rematch against Brazil, in which they only led by 6 at the half but then played excellent defense and ended up winning by 25.

Here are Jake's cumulative stats from the five games:

Games played: 5, zero games started
Minutes played: 61, average 12.2 minutes per game, 11th on the team
FG shooting: 14-26 (.538), 6th on the team (percentage)
3-point shooting: 6-15 (.400), best on the team
Free throws: 4-7 (.571)
Rebounds: 3 offensive, 17 defensive, 20 total, 4.0 per game
Personal fouls: 8
Assists: 4
Turnovers: 4
Blocks: 3
Steals: 4
Points: 38, average 7.6 per game, 5th best on the team

One thing that jumped out at me is that despite being 11th on the team in minutes played, he ended up with the 5th most points scored. He was tied for the most 3-pointers (6) and had the best 3-point percentage on the team.

The USA Basketball web site seemed to feature one player in a picture after each game recap; Jake was the man after the game against Mexico in which he led the team with 18 points. Hopefully he gained a lot from the experience.

Go Jake! Go Terps!
