EVALUATION: B.J. does a lot of solid things on the court on both ends of the floor. He is a consummate team player not at all interested in individual glory. He just tries to help his team win basketball games and the Connecticut Basketball Club won many at IS8 in the Fall League.

He can score and has an above average mid-range game. Once in a while he can extend his perimeter game beyond the three-point line.
