JB Hoops alum J.C. Show has been at his best at the conclusion of his college career nears.
Show, a Binghamton University graduate student who is in his final year of athletic eligibility, set a school record Saturday for 3-pointers made in a game with 10.
The guard from Abington Heights has scored more than 1,000 points in a college career that began with a season at Bucknell University.
Show made all seven of his 3-point attempts during a 50-point second half when Binghamton ran away from host Maine University in an America East game. He scored 30 points by going 10-for-14 on 3s.
“It was one of those things where the shots are feeling good coming off my hand,” said Show, who broke a record of eight in a game that he shared with teammate Sam Sessoms and two others. “I have to give credit to my teammates. They found me in open spots and the timing was right.
“That’s so important when you’re trying to get your feet set and get on balance and be ready to shoot the basketball.”
Show helped Binghamton improve to 5-10 in the America East and 9-21 overall going into Tuesday night’s regular-season finale against Albany. The Bearcats are then headed to the conference tournament, which they failed to qualify for a year ago.
The record-setting performance continued a five-game stretch in which Show also went 6-for-6 in a game against Vermont. During that time, he is hitting 59.6 percent (28-for-47) from 3-point range while averaging 20 points per game to increase his season average to 11.4 points.
“I feel that a lot of the work and the extra shooting I’ve been doing is starting to work and play out on the court,” Show said.
