BELMAR, N.J. -- The Rutgers-led Gutter Cleaners picked up two wins during the week at Verizon Fios…
Randall Still Learning at JSBL
Randall averages close to 10 rebounds per game off the bench for the Gutter Cleaners, but said he is not satisfied with his performance.
"I'm getting rebounds, getting a lot of rebounds," Randall said. "I can back people down and I'm doing well backing up some of the older guys, but that's not all I should be able to do."
What specifically does Randall want to improve?
"I need to develop my right hand a lot," he said. "I rarely got to my right side because my left hand never really gets stopped. I just never think about this (right) hand. If you chop this hand off, I could still play with my left hand."
Randall, who would also like to improve his upper body strength, said he is happy with the overall progress of the team.
After starting 0-3, the Gutter Cleaners are 4-4 with two games remaining before the playoffs in the first week of August.
"We're a lot better," Randall said. "We still aren't playing the way I know we can, but we're a lot closer. We keep improving like this and we can win in the playoffs.
"I feel like we can win games against anyone when we play well in the post. For me, the challenge is to stay confident and be assertive. I can't be afraid to try and score when I get the ball."
In the team's 128-103 win last night, Randall showed what he can do offensively with a 15-point, seven-rebound performance.
"My eyes are set on winning this league because we have that talent," he said. "We're going to work at it and try to work out the problems in practices. When we get our inside and our outside flowing, we're going to be tough."
With eight games together under their belts, Randall is a player who has caught the eyes of the more experienced Scarlet Knights.
"Randall has game," said junior forward Austin Johnson. "He can already rebound very well and he shows flashes where you just turn your head and are very impressed. He can still improve a lot. He's young. He needs to develop his offensive game, but his rebounding and shot-blocking have been huge for us. He's going to be good."
