THOUGHTS ON JAMEL FIELD'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Jamel is a very aggressive guard who has tremendous confidence when he takes the ball to the rim. He doesn't fear any big man when he attacks offensively with the rock in the paint.

So one can say his strength is his aggressiveness. And he is strong enough to take on the big bodies around the basket. However, as time goes by in his early high school career, Fields' decision making will be a big part of his future success.

"He's so young," Hart says. "He's got a bunch of talent. He's just a freshman though. So he has time to continue to learn the game and improve his individual game."
