A little Joe Crispin highlight reel from Friday night

“Ferrara 79 - 86 Barcellona” Highlights by Barcellonabasket.net
Joe is #7 in black. Check out the quick-trigger back-up 27-footers rocketing through the net. Then, look at how he works off the threat of a trey and blows by guys. He was Eurobasket’s Italian League 2 player of the week…

I know Amaechi and Booth had a lot of time in the NBA. But, in terms of skill, I think he’s still the most accomplished pro player PSU has ever produced.

Frank Brickowski had a nice NBA run, Pete Lisicky and Jan Jagla both reached higher level play in Europe, but Joe’s shooting skills are unmatched.

Joe Crispin firing away threes, driving and hitting passes - all with a vintage IRON MAIDEN song playing in the background. It just doesn’t get cooler than that very often!! I was checking in after doing some late nite work, and this capped off the evening. Thanks, Dave.

Awesome. I especially love how he makes a few 3’s and then uses that to drive to the hoop instead of forcing up contested 3’s.

Great stuff from Joe. Both teams looked like they were studying the Nittany Lion 2004-05 Defense Handbook. :wink:

JC3 has textbook form on his threes, there is no wasted movement.
