2011 Jordan Brand Classic: Khem Birch Dominant. Again.

Khem Birch has been making the rounds, getting a lot of action before starting his career at Pitt. He again had the opportunity to showcase his skills in the 2011 Jordan Brand Classic.

And he didn't disappoint.

In only 16 minutes off the bench, it's fair to say that Birch had a pretty good game playing against some of the nation's best:

Incoming Pittsburgh Panthers freshmen Khem Birch added yet another impressive game to his already stacked resume, helping the East squad to a 113-109 victory over the west squad at the 2011 Jordan Brand Classic.

Birch finished the game with 15 points, 7 rebounds and a game-high 5 blocked shots. Birch came off the bench and was highly effective in his limited 16 minutes of playing time. He provided his usual high energy, changed bunch of blocked shots and managed to get a majority his points off of offensive rebounds and scrappy plays.

Out of all of that, I've got to say the thing I'm most excited about is Birch's reputation for being a high-energy guy. If he doesn't start next season (at least not right away), then that would be valuable.

As I wrote last week, there's another opportunity to catch Birch coming up in May.
