But Tuesday night, in a game that was at times scrappy and unflattering, two under-the-radar sources of offense came to the fore.Brandon Starr scored a career-high 15 points, and the usually hot-shooting Jaguars relied on the deep ball as a decoy to propel a 64-43 win over Springfield. Starr’s 15 points didn’t exactly come out of nowhere; he’s been in double-figures five of the last six games. But the fact that it was fueled by three 3-pointers on a night where the usual suspects’ shooting touch was uncharacteristically chilly helps to confound opponents’ attempts at game-planning for the Jags (5-2, 3-2 Central).
“It’s huge because he’s more of a tweener-type guy,” guard Andrew Louden said of Starr. “He can get to the basket, he gets rebounds, but he can also step back and hit 3s. And a lot of times, there are mismatches on him because he can hit the 3.”
