Toyota High School Athlete of the Week- Nottingham's Mazi Jackson
The future of Nottingham Basketball is bright, a glimpse of that was given to the Bulldogs faithful Tuesday night.
Nottingham knocked off a powerful West Genesee team 75-70 in Syracuse that night behind 34 points from Mazi Jackson.
Jackson, mind you, is still a sophomore.
That night wasn't an anomaly either, Jackson is averaging 18 points per game and has hit 20 or more points six times so far this season.
In a win over Rochester East in December he flirted with a triple-double, scoring 27 points with 10 rebounds and six assists.
Those glimpses are quickly turning into absolute exclamation points.
Jackson has uncanny vision, constantly finding open teammates with a flare for the dramatic.
It may not have been a buzzer-beater, but with the game on the line against West Genny Tuesday, Jackson calmly drilled free throws needed to put the game on ice.
So, whether you're a high school hoops fan or not, make sure you take one thing from this story:
Keep an eye on Mazi Jackson the next couple seasons, and beyond.
