Jason Shields made the most of his first significant playing time.
The NEPA Elite Coyle 17U and Scranton High School alum had been limited to just one minute in one appearance in the first six games of this season at Thomas Jefferson University, a National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II team in Phiadelphia.
When Shields entered the game with 6:06 left in the first half of Wednesday’s game at Chestnut Hill, he needed just 10 seconds to draw a foul in transition and turn it into his first two college points at the foul line.
Shields, a 6-foot-5 freshman guard, wound up scoring 7 points in 10 minutes of the 99-63 romp.
