Derrick Alston Jr. has had a terrific season to date for Boise State. After losing their first game of the season to a phenomenal Houston squad, Alston and Boise State have raddled off a 9 game winning streak including their win tonight against Air Force.
Coming into the game against Air Force, Alston had shooting splits of 48/43/85 on the season. In this particular game, Derrick Alston Jr. didn’t shoot the ball as well as we are accustomed to seeing (4/12 FG, 1/7 3PT), but he did hit all 7 of his free throws and truly helped carry Boise State away with a few huge plays in the 2nd half.
The biggest play that he made was a vicious poster dunk in transition.
Air Force is not a bad team by any means either. They have a stud guard in AJ Walker who has continued to improve over the last few years and have a few impressive wins over the likes of Nevada and Cal State Northridge.
Derrick Alston Jr. is certainly a prospect to look at for the 2021 NBA Draft. Given the talent that is included in this draft class, it’d be tough to see him get selected in the 1st Round, but given his production this season thus far, there’s certainly a chance he could get drafted.
