Chris Jones and Montrezl Harrell’s stats against their hometown teams

Chris Jones

Chris Jones has been getting a lot of heat on social media about the Memphis game, and probably rightfully so. He didn’t play very well and he forced the issue, a LOT. He took bad shots, drove 1 on 3, and dribbled too much trying to create on his own. But he isn’t the only player on our team to play bad against his hometown team. Earlier in the season, Montrezl Harrell didn’t exactly play great against North Carolina.

We have guys that play with a lot of emotion, and that emotion has gotten the best of them a few times this season. Hopefully if we run into these teams again this season, they play more for the name on the front of the jersey and don’t try to do too much on their own. Getting the win is more important.

Chris Jones vs Memphis

Jan. 9: 28 minutes, 2 points, 1-9 shooting, 0-3 from 3, 3 turnovers, 3 assists, 1 rebound

Mar. 1: 21 minutes, 3 points, 1-10 shooting, 0-4 from 3, 2 turnovers, 1 assist, 3 rebounds

Total: 49 minutes, 5 points, 2-19 shooting, 0-7 from 3, 5 turnovers, 4 assists, 4 rebounds

Montrezl Harrell vs North Carolina

Nov. 24: 25 minutes, 5 points, 2-5 shooting, 10 rebounds, 3 turnovers, 5 fouls (fouled out with 7 1/2 minutes left)

“They weren’t good fouls, especially that fifth one” said Louisville coach Rick Pitino. “You give it to people open or you go around them, you don’t try to pull a Michael Jordan at that point.”
