Summary:

Christian James is an athletic combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  After having been in the shadows of Trae Young last year, James is putting together a pretty good senior season, as he is averaging roughly 15 points per game, and he scored 20 points in his team’s blowout win over Ole Miss in the 1st Round of the NCAA Tournament.  Right now, he may be a borderline second round prospect for the upcoming draft.
