T.J McConnell: Wunderkind!

I am sure I wasn't the only person who thought it was odd to offer 5'8 - 135 pound sophmore point guard T.J. McConnell a scholorship, but it appears Ron Everhart knew what he was doing. McConnell, the son of coach Tim McConnell is off to a great start to his sophomore season, here is a write up from the Trib

Courtesy of the Trib:
Sophomore guard T.J. McConnell enjoyed his second consecutive strong shooting performance Friday, scoring 23 points and leading Chartiers Valley to a 65-46 victory against East Islip (N.Y.) in the semifinals of the KSA Holiday Classic in Orlando, Fla.
McConnell, son of coach Tim McConnell, hit five 3-point shots. He has 47 points and 11 3-pointers in two games. Chartiers Valley (7-1) will play St. Francis (Ontario) in the tournament's championship game at 8:15 a.m. today.

This is what College Hoops Update has to say about McConnell:
Son of a coach and deadly from long range; high hoops IQ with good anticipation and quickness; diminutive size and will have to bulk up before college.


if anyone has a picture of McConnell on the court please pass it along to me.

There is no question that TJ is a good player, but there are 4 other starters on that team who consistantly score in the double digits, and would score more if the entire offense of Chartiers Valley wasn't structured around getting the ball to TJ. Its blatant favoritism and people are starting to lose respect for Coach McConnell.
