Bailey grabs 13 boards to secure second straight double-double
Jeremiah Bailey of Fairbanks pulled down a career-high 13 rebounds and scored 12 points to give him a double-double in back-to-back games for the first time in his University of the Pacific career.
The senior guard did his damage in just 26 minutes in his team’s 92-64 win over Westmont in Stockton, California.
Consider this: Bailey recorded one double-double in his first 66 games. Then he did it in consecutive games.
His performance is indicative of his breakout swansong season.
Bailey, of Monroe Catholic High fame, opened the season with a career-high 25-point effort and is now averaging a team-best 14.8 points per game through the first four.
The 6-foot-6 guard is also averaging a career-best 8.5 rebounds per game, thanks to his historic handywork on the glass.
Bailey’s 13 rebounds are tied for the sixth-highest career high among Alaska men to play NCAA D1 hoops. His older brother, Kyle, had 14 rebounds for Santa Clara in 2004.
