Playing more under control than we had seen him doing with Bosnia in the Division B of the U-18 European Championships, Hodzic took advantage of his physical superiority to attack his opponents and split defenses. Showing nice size for his position, solid athleticism, good quickness and already notable strength, there were very few guys who could match his physical profile. Dino proved to be very incisive attacking with his right hand, punishing any ill-advised opponent that left him the opportunity to go that direction. Actually, he shows nice footwork to slash in traffic. Dino is not nearly as dangerous with his off hand, which reduced his effectiveness once the opposing teams started pushing him to his left.
The Bosnian is very hard to stop in transition, but struggles against well structured set defenses. He’s not precisely a distributor, more of a drive and kick passer, and often a bit individualistic. He needs to keep working on his decision making and focus on providing good solutions for his team as a whole. Although able to shoot off the dribble from mid-range distances and enjoying three-point range, Hodzic also needs to gain consistency with his jumper. Solid on defense, often surprisingly aggressive chasing the boards, he’s a pretty active guy.
