Fame Continues to Roll in for Russell
Russell, Jax State’s senior point guard, put together the best
individual performance in 80 years of JSU basketball, scoring the first triple-double in school history Tuesday night as
the Gamecocks obliterated Eastern Kentucky in the opening round of the Ohio Valley Conference tournament. His 21-point,
11-rebound, 11-assist show, which included a little homage to Michael Jordan after a 3-pointer during a personal 11-0
run in the second half, got him some serious air time on Sports Center and its replays. To top it off, he was named All-OVC
first team Wednesday. See story at The Anniston Star's website: www.annistonstar.com.
