Oak Hill snaps Christ School's streak
The Christ School Greenies (21-1) had won 36 straight games since the last time they lost to the Warriors (21-0) by three points in the same event last year.
"We just tried to come out and play good defense and play our game," Jackson said. "Early on they were cherry picking and kind of pulled away from us."
Jackson faced a task when he was guarding Scout.com's No. 1 point guard of the 2009 class, John Wall, at the championship game of the of the GSK Holiday Invitational in Raleigh last month, but he wouldn't have the same kind of success keeping Virginia Tech-bound point guard Lamont "Momo" Jones out of the paint like he did Wall.
"I think when I was guarding John Wall, I was guarding him on his left side, and it affected him. It didn't really work with Momo," the 6-foot-5 wing said. Jackson wasn't guarding Jones for most of the game, but the three-star guard still managed to score a game-high 34 points against Christ School.
"He could go to either side, and he could finish with either hand," Jackson added. Jones was not the only weapon Oak Hill had, as most recruiting services have this national power ranked in the top 5 in the nation.
"Everyone out there was above 6-5," Jackson said, looking at the game as a learning tool for college. "The SEC has mostly big guys out there, and this game helped me prepare for that."
Jackson finished with 11 points on 5 of 11 shooting, six rebounds, two steals and five turnovers.
The Charlotte native took time to reflect on other SEC commits he's seen either in person or on television so far this year as he continues to prepare to take his game to South Carolina.
"I think I size up with (other SEC players) real well. They look really good out there, and I look forward to playing them next year."
