The term “Walking Bucket” is used loosely by the basketball community sometimes, but in this case, the term fits this young 6’3 guard correctly. The emergence of Jayce Catchings was brewing since last year but this year, there is an overflow.
We’ve seen Jayce confidence growing in the summer playing for Bradley Beal Elite 16U team during the EYBL summer circuit. Becoming a reliable source of offense for the talented group of ballers. Last year, Jayce averaged 16.4 points per game during the regular season. During the current 2018-19 season Jayce is averaging 27.4 points per game while shooting 44.4% from the field.
That’s even more impressive considering his opponents is often sending help defensively because he is the focus of the Liberty Eagles offense. The 9-3 Eagles have scored a combined 708 points on the season. Jayce has scored 329 of those points, which is 46.4% of the Eagles offense. He scored a school record 44 points in early December against Francis Howell North High School.
