Jericole Hellems was absolutely sensational at the 2017 Peach Jam, and he put together one of the most complete performances of the season in North Augusta.
Coming off of 20, 29 and 30 point performances to open up the Peach Jam, it was hard to believe that the underrated Hellems had it in him to top his opening trio of games.
Hellems did just that, putting together his strongest game of the EYBL season, and likely the best game of his young basketball career.
Hellems dropped 34 points in a 91-80 win over CIA Bounce, showing that Bradley Beal Elite can beat you in a track meet, just as easily as they can run you into the ground with their defense. The 6-foot-7 junior swingman shot 9-for-13 from the field, 12-for-14 from the line, 4-for-6 from distance, helping guide head coach Corey Frazier and company to a 4-0 start at Peach Jam.
Hellems scored 11 of BBE's first 13 points, and the bouncy swingman kept up his stellar play for the entire tournament. In seven games, Hellems averaged 22.4 points and seven rebounds while shootin 56% from the floor - 50% from distance.
Worth noting about Hellems monstrous game - it came against Simi Shittu, Ignas Brazdeikis and Quincy Guerrier - three of the most talented swingmen on the circuit.
