Articles about Jamel McLean

March 16, 2011

Up front, senior forward Jamel McLean and junior centre Kenny Frease were way too big for the Atlantic 10 to contend with. Frease in particular is a monster of a man, standing 7'0 with a frame the size of a decently sized farm, and with improved mobility for that size. He is in the midst of a breakout year, averaging 11.9 points and 7.2 rebounds in 28 minutes per game, demonstrating decent finesse around the basket for one so large, although employing more of an aggressive, powerful game would help. Conversely, McLean is pretty much all power and no finesse. He is a well-built 6'8 post player, whose game consists of going to get the damn ball, then throwing himself at the damn basket. It works, too; McLean averages 10.8 points and 8.5 rebounds in 30 minutes a night, and defends the post with a similar tenacity. There is not much behind them, but Robinson has at least improved as the season has gone along, and despite his lack of offensive production, Taylor can have some impact defensively in limited minutes.
