Jackson jams might ignite Bearcats

UC basketball coach Mick Cronin has said that statistics can be deceiving.

However, logic says if Justin Jackson can score 14 points a game, the Bearcats' chances are helped immensely.

"How many shots?" Cronin asked when I questioned what 14 points from Jackson would mean each night. "If he's five-for-five (as he was against DePaul) we'll take it."

Cronin says Jackson's shot selection has been better.

One shot in particular stood out in the DePaul game Feb. 4.  It was a thunderous dunk from the lane that reminded me of moves Kenyon Martin, Jason Maxiell and Eric Hicks would make. Just "take no prisoners" and ram it home.

Dunks like that are a huge momentum changer.  I spoke with Jackson about that and other "deep" topics before a recent practice.
