RJ White’s Spartan’s had the opportunity to test themselves against one of the best defenses in the #7 team in the country Virginia Cavaliers. RJ showed signs of why he has the potential to be a dominant inside force. RJ comes into the 2016-17 year looking like he dedicated himself in the offseason. White has the physical attributes to be successful in his position. Height, strength, weight, wingspan, and explosion all are check marks. RJ demonstrated mobility, catching in traffic, operate and finish in tight spaces.

Although RJ saw limited action in the first half due to 2 quick fouls, White attracted double teams almost every touch inside the three-point line. White’s wide ball screens help get his guards loose, he knocked down a three, operated a reverse pivot post jump hook, and emphatic dunk. At times Virginia’s double teams got the best of RJ as he had a couple of turnovers, but he didn’t give up on the play.
