Syracuse basketball 2022 target J.J. Starling has absolutely crushed things so far at the 2021 Montverde Academy Invitational Tournament in Montverde, Fla., where he is averaging more than 22 points per game while facing a trio of top-10 teams.

This past Saturday afternoon, Starling and his teammates at the La Lumiere School in La Porte, Ind., squared off against the Wasatch Academy out of Mount Pleasant, Utah, a group whose roster includes former Orange 2022 target Roddy Gayle Jr., a four-star shooting guard who has committed to Ohio State.
