TJ Cameron quietly leads Mott to national final

Posted: March 18, 2011 by Jared Field in JUCO

DANVILLE, Illinois — He’s the player who’s always lost in the shuffle. Since his high school days in Kalamazoo, to AAU ball with Camp Darryl to Mott, TJ Cameron has been quietly doing his thing.

On Friday night, Mott’s sophomore “glue guy” scored eight points with eight rebounds, four assists and one turnover. He played a team-high 32 minutes and continues to be Mott’s top defensive player.

The 6-3 swingman is one of the state’s best-kept secrets and might just be playing his way into a few scholarship offers. There are at least 100 coaches in Danville right now and I’m certain they’ve noticed what Cameron brings to the table.

  1. Jared Field says:

    I failed to mention that TJ was the MCCAA defensive player of the year.

  2. A. Biggers says:

    TJ is class kid. No doubt. It was great talking with his family tonight. He’ll go far, that’s for sure.
