Baylor’s Pierre Jackson Scores 27 In Euroleague

Former Baylor star Pierre Jackson poured in 27 points to lead Israel’s Maccabi Tel-Aviv past Germany’s Brose Baskets 88-71 in the Euroleague.

 

The explosive 5-10 point guard was a perfect 5-for-5 from behind the arc, while shooting 50 percent (4-of-8) from two-point range and 4-of-5 from the line.

 

Jackson also had 9 assists, 7 rebounds, and 3 steals in the game.

 

Michael Roll (UCLA) added 16 points for Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the win.

 

For Brose Baskets, point guard Nikolaos Zisis had16 points in the loss.

 

But the star of the game was Jackson, who comes from the G League, where he was third in assists and seventh in scoring last season, averaging 22.5 points and 7.7 assists for the Texas Legends.

 

He also played part of the year with the NBA’s Dallas Mavs, averaging 4.4 points and 2.4 assists in eight games.

 

A college star at Baylor, Jackson led the Big 12 in scoring (19.8) and assists (7.1) as a senior in 2012-13, becoming first player to lead a power-6 conference in both categories since Arizona’s Jason Terry in 1998-99.

 

He graduated No. 3 all-time in career assists, and No. 14 all-time in career scoring at the school.

 

Jackson was the 42nd overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft by the Sixers.
