If his past two games are any indication, UC Davis basketballer J.T. Adrenrele may just be maturing before our very eyes.
The sophomore from Roseville submitted two different performances in a loss at Stanford on Saturday and in the Aggies’ win over Eastern Washington on Monday night, but together they tell one important story: Adenrele is learning to do whatever the team needs on a given night.
Facing a Stanford squad that possessed the normal advantages in speed and athleticism that UCD would expect to see from a Pac-12 opponent, Adenrele took it upon himself to be a force. The result was a career-high 23 points to go with six rebounds.
Then Monday, when the team was getting scoring from several other sources, the Greiner Athlete of the Week concentrated more on rebounding, finishing with his first career double-double (13 points, 10 boards) to help the Aggies earn a much-needed win.
