With the D-League season winding down, Travis Trice has the Westchester Knicks primed for continued success. The first year guard out of Michigan State dropped a career-high 29 points in the Knicks' 98-94 win over the Erie Bayhawks on Saturday night. Westchester sits just two games (as of Wednesday) behind Maine in the Atlantic division of the D-League's Eastern conference.
Against Erie, Trice was able to get it done all over the court. From attacking the rim and drawing fouls, to shooting teardrops over taller defenders, the guard showed off his scoring potential while handing out five assists and creating four steals.
Trice was a force after Jimmer Fredette departed for the NBA. In four games at shooting guard, he averaged 23 points and 8.5 assists. With Fredette as his backcourt mate, Trice served as Westchester's primary point guard, often looking to get others involved and deferring scoring to the bigger name. With Fredette back in town, Trice may not be so willing to give up his scoring chances. It'll be interesting to see how they complement one another going forward.
