Garcia displayed his nice perimeter shooting stroke during the game, but failed to really make an impression during the game. The small forward has legit size and should make an impact at Memphis next season with his ability to space the floor. Throughout the week in practices, he switched it up some by showing solid ball-handling and finishing ability at the hoop, but he wasn’t faced with any chances to show these skills off during the game. Defensively, Garcia seems slow laterally to guard wing players, and lacks the bulk to really have a chance at the four right now. With added bulk, he could develop into a nicely skilled combo-forward. His understanding of the game also seems a bit behind the curve at this point in time, but his shooting should get him immediate minutes at Memphis.

Anytime you see a near seven-footer comfortably netting shots from well beyond the NBA three-point line, it’s impossible not to pay attention. Angel Luis or just Angel Garcia is a very unorthodox guy, built like a center (for his age) but who also enjoys nice athleticism and loves to hang around the three-point line. Besides the crazy range on his shots, he can put the ball on the floor with both hands, showing surprising ball-handling skills for a player of his size and strength. However, he's not the smartest guy around to take decisions off the dribble, and therefore his effectiveness for the team is limited. He basically looks for the basket and goes up for a shot whenever someone steps in his way. He's not particularly productive in these situations, as his jumpers off slashing moves are usually rather unbalanced. Able to finish with both hands, for a right-handed player his left hand looks pretty skilled. Actually he looks like a player who has over-done himself in certain aspects of the game but who lacks solid basketball fundamentals to properly take advantage of those strengths. His basketball IQ looks average and he's not a creative player for his team. Garcia is virtually a full-time face-up player, and it's extremely difficult to see him taking advantage of his size in the low post. On defense he's not as physical as he should be, while his defensive rotations are somehow inconsistent. Garcia also goes to high school in the States, and is being recruited heavily by Florida, Louisville, Memphis and Indiana in particular.
