2014 G 'Show'ing up on the radar

As a 6-foot-2, class of 2014 guard, JC Show has had a vast amount of experience during his young career.

Show has offers from Boston University, Bucknell, Cornell and Rider.

Starting for Abington Heights (Pa.) since day one of his freshman year, Show has been running the point for the Comets for two seasons now – both of which have ended in PIAA State Playoff berths. Facilitating the offense comes as a strength to the sophomore, who helps elevate his teammates’ level of play every time he steps on the court.

“For a sophomore, he shows a tremendous amount of leadership and confidence in his game,” AAU coach John Bucci said. “JC is the definition of a true combo guard. His best quality as a player is making everyone around him better, but at the same time having a good game himself.”

This AAU season, Show has been running with JB Hoops, but he’s been doing it while playing up a year. Pitted up against some quality 2013 talent in the Philly Jam Fest last month, the 195-pound guard helped lead his team to a victory over Rysheed Jordan’s Philly Pride team, with a host of college coaches on hand to take in the action.

Already with offers from Boston University, Bucknell, Cornell and Rider, Show has received some interest from Penn State and Villanova, both of which called Bucci after the performance.

Admittedly, Show knows there is room to improve, especially breaking his defender down off the dribble, in addition to improving his quickness, but the Pennsylvania native doesn’t leave anything on the court.

“As a player I would say my best characteristic is I compete, doesn’t matter who the opponent is, you know what you’re going to get from me in terms of effort,” said Show. “I give it everything I have, and I play unselfishly, I play hard and let everything else take care of itself.”

Having taken visits to Bucknell and Cornell in the past couple of weeks, Show is starting to get involved with colleges more, but is still very early in the process, and is looking to continue proving himself going forward.
