November 4, 2019 - After a sophomore season in which he admitted "I think I had a pretty strong freshman year, backed off a little bit last year", junior wing Jamorko Pickett looks primed for a bounce-back 2019-20 season. Producing numbers of 6.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game in '18-19 was not suitable for Pickett or the program.

He's redoubled his efforts to more greatly benefit the Blue and Grey and himself. Per an exclusive interview during Sunday's Hoya Media Day, the 6'8", 210 pound performer with prodigious length and tools, recounted his time on The Hilltop, reviewed his sophomore swoon (as a frosh he dropped 9.6 ppg), while discussing optimal basketball focus, meeting pro potential and his high school coach.

That session was initially provided on Premium Court, where discussion followed. For DMV hoop fans' benefit, it's being provided here as well!
