B.J. Holmes has no resentment towards Jai Lucas just because the son of the former NBA player and head coach has received far more attention.
``I just play and all of it will take care of itself,” said the 5-foot-11, 160-pound junior floor leader.
Holmes played with Team Houston two years ago and then with the T-Mac All-Stars this past spring and summer. He averaged 17 points and seven assists in high school as a sophomore.
``The Houston Hoops are stacked so I tried to go with the T-Mac All-Stars,” Holmes said. “It was a new team and I thought they’d get a lot of recognition being named after T-Mac. We did pretty good.”
Holmes is a guy who knows how to run a team. He’s poised, quick and knows how to get his teammates involved.
Holmes, 16, said that education and just going to a “good program” will be the two most important factors when deciding on his college destination.
So far, he likes Texas A&M, Illinois, Texas and Georgia Tech.
``Georgia Tech and Illinois are probably the two leaders right now,” he admitted.
