Lamar Rice’s Shiga Lakestars team should score a lot of points in Japanese basketball league

Flint Southwestern and Mott grad Lamar Rice started his season with the Shiga Lakestars over the weekend, and scored 21 points and seven rebounds in his team’s win. But Rice and his team should score a lot of points this season, according to his teammate, Yu Okada while talking to the Japan Times:

“Our offense can score from anywhere. We run a lot. But we don’t have size so we need to box out firmly and play with discipline based on fundamentals. Otherwise, even if we score a lot, it can be ruined if we play poorly on defense.”

Rice played in a different Japanese league last season. This year, his league features several American players and former D-League players, as well as former Denver Nuggets lottery pick Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (formerly Chris Jackson). Abdul-Rauf was a pretty good NBA player for a while, but is probably best remembered for his stance (or lack thereof) on the national anthem.
