Well, Jaycee Carroll’s season is done. Regal Barca knocked out Gran Canaria 2-0 in the Quarterfinals. Game 1 last Friday, Regal Barca crushed Gran Canaria 85-53. Jaycee was held to 15 points on 3-6 shooting from 2 and 1-5 shooting from 3. He had 2 boards and 2 assists.Game 2 was Sunday and wasn’t much different for Gran Canaria. Regal Barca won 65-47. Jaycee finished with 11 points on 4-11 shooting from 2 and 1-5 from 3. He added 5 boards and 2 assists. He will be coming back to Logan, from what I understand, on Wednesday. The big question with Jaycee now is, WILL HE BE PLAYING IN THE NBA THIS NEXT SEASON???? I would be surprised if the regular-season leading scorer of the best European league and possible rookie of the year of that league couldn’t get a 2 or 3 year deal in the NBA. I will let you know if I can find out anything. I will be contacting his agent over the summer to find out what I can.
