When Anchorage’s Jalil Abdul-Bassit signed with Toowoomba of the Queensland Basketball League in Australia, the team’s coach said he couldn’t remember a time when the franchise signed a player of his caliber.

Stout expectations, but the 6-foot-4 Alaskan has delivered the goods.

Abdul-Bassit, of East High fame, ranks second in the QBL in scoring at 24 points per game through the first five games.

Dude definitely has the green light, attempting 22 shots per game.

Abdul-Bassit is shooting .443 on 2-pointers, .333 on 3-pointers and .727 on free throws.

The University of Oregon product is adding 3.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game for a 1-4 Toowoomba team.
