Pick-up games are always a little dangerous to report on, because nobody ever plays any kind of defense.
But the following has to be a positive for Utah State fans: According to those in attendance, Kyisean Reed has been the best player for the Aggies during late night summer runs this month.
He's been making jump shots. He's been putting the ball on the floor and going to the basket. Of course, he's been playing above the rim.
But most importantly? He's been aggressive. Assertive.
Indeed, if that can translate to the regular season, Utah State could be in good shape.
When engaged and interested, Reed is a game-changer, a beast athletically who can score in highlight fashion.
When disinterested, Reed disappears and leaves fans wanting for more. Much more.
Two things should help Reed a bunch this season.
He will have a year in the system, and junior college players typically get better in the second year.
Secondly, Reed will be playing next to an athletic 6-foot-11 guy defensively in Jarred Shaw, which makes his relative 6-6 height a little less of an issue at power forward.
We are still months away from October. But an aggressive Kyisean Reed is something that could become a storyline as the year comes closer and closer.
