Bronny James Finally Played In An HBCU Game

by Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton

Before Bronny James took his talents to USC, some people hoped he would take his talents to an HBCU.

Well, the closest thing for the time being happened: The much-hyped freshman played against an HBCU school, Alabama State, on Tuesday, Dec. 19.

Bronny’s first game against an HBCU turned out well: USC beat Alabama State, 79-59. According to The Los Angeles Times, Bronny provided an immediate spark when he hit two quick three-pointers after the start of the second half.

“He’s a terrific shooter,” USC coach Andy Enfield said of the freshman. “He just needs to be able to shoot when he gets winded. Tonight, it was nice to see him because he was able to run up and down the court and was able to make a couple of threes when he was somewhat tired. He’s one of our better shooters on the team and he’s also a very smart player with the ball in his hands.”

Following a summer plagued with health concerns, the 17-plus minutes he played was a season best. He ended up with six points, three rebounds, an assist, and a steal. It wasn’t all good: He also committed three turnovers, and the referees called a pair of first-half charges against him.
USC’s next game is Dec. 28 on the road against Oregon, followed by a game two days later against Oregon State.
