Mid-Major Fr All-American
During the regular season McCrea led the MAC in scoring at 19.6 points per game and he led the league in rebounding at 9.8 per contest. He finished third in field goal percentage (.577) and 14th in assists (2.7). McCrea was also 10th in the league in minutes played.
He finished his college playing days ranked 10th amongst all active players nationally in career points and eighth in career rebounds. He was the only active player in the nation with at least 1,900 points, 900 rebounds, 200 blocked shots and 200 assists.
At the conference level 14th in MAC history in scoring, 18th in MAC history in rebounding, 5th in MAC history in blocked shots.
If there is a hitch in his game it's his long jumper which looks awkward and is easily his weakest shot. Outside of the long jumper Javon does not really have any huge holes in his game.
Those numbers lifted McCrea over the top as he became the schools all-time leading scorer. He finished his UB career with 2,004 points and 988 rebounds.
McCrea shows good power and a variety of moves and shots when he catches the ball. He is equally effective with the left or the right hand which makes him even more difficult match up in the post. According to Synergy Sports Technology, McCrea ranked among the more efficient first-options in college hoops.
Defensively, McCrea used his length and anticipation skills to rack up steals and blocks. Javon is an effective defender both on the perimeter and in the post. What scouts are looking for this summer during his workouts is a better lateral quickness while defending. That might be the last piece of the puzzle helps McCrea succeed in the NBA.
