The Japan Times features periodic interviews with players in the bj-league. Scootie Randall of the Eastern Conference-leading Iwate Big Bulls is the subject of this week’s profile.

Noteworthy: Randall, who can play both guard and forward positions, is the bj-league’s leading scorer (23.6 points per game) through Sunday, when Iwate won its 16th straight game. He’s attempted 10 or more free throws in nine games. . . . While at Communications Technical High School in Philly, Randall became the boys’ varsity team’s all-time leading scorer (1,735 points). As a senior, he was chosen as Pennsylvania’s Class AAA Player of the Year and Philadelphia Public League MVP. . . . Randall attended Temple from 2008-13. . . . In a recent interview, Iwate coach Dai Oketani said, “Scootie is getting mature and ready to rise up as a star player.”
