Official Portsmouth Measurements Released|
April 18, 2010
Along the same lines we find Siena’s Edwin Ubiles, coming out just a hair under 6-6 without shoes with a 6-10 wingspan. He looks the part of an NBA wing player with his fluid style of play and strong athleticism, and measured out that way as well, comparing favorably with those figures to John Salmons at the same age.

Portsmouth Invitational Tournament Recap, All-Second Team
April 14, 2010
Edwin Ubiles showcased his evolving and expanding offensive skill set at Portsmouth, reviving his draft stock and suggesting that he is a player worth watching in the future.
Between his junior and seasons, Edwin Ubiles transformed his offensive game significantly. While early in his career, he scored mostly in transition and spot-up shooting opportunities, 30% of his offensive possessions were isolations as a senior.
He has always been an impressive prospect from a physical perspective, standing a legitimate 6’7 with a solid frame and long arms. He is also a fine athlete by NBA standards, both quick in the open floor and explosive around the basket.
Ubiles showcased improved ball handling and an increased comfort level taking his man off of the dribble throughout the season and at Portsmouth. While he still has a long way to go before he is considered a consistent threat at the next level, his progress was reflected in stable straight-line dribbling and occasionally in effective change of direction moves. He must continue to work on his handle, however, so that he can better utilize his athleticism both in transition and slashing to the basket. Despite his superior physical tools at the mid-major level, he rarely got the free throw line this season, drawing just 82 attempts in 30 games this season.
As a shot creator, Ubiles shows a reliable pull up jumper, with solid form and elevation. He also showed improved shooting form and shot selection from beyond the arc, though largely in a spot-up capacity. While his form was not always consistent over the course of the tournament, he shot the ball well from beyond the arc at Portsmouth. Despite the solid percentages (40%) he achieved from 3-point range his senior year, Ubiles only took 73 attempts from beyond the arc this year, something that has been the case throughout his career.
Defensively, Ubiles utilized his size and athleticism to guard multiple positions and assert himself despite his lack of fundamentals. His lateral quickness and length are also good, but he must continue to refine his defensive instincts in the future. He’s not much of a rebounder either, which is a surprise considering his length and athleticism—grabbing under 5 rebounds per-40 minutes pace adjusted this season—a disappointing rate.
Ubiles will also need to continue to work on is his decision-making, shot selection, toughness and overall basketball IQ, as at this point, he does not seem to know his limitations and, on occasions, did not know when to give up the ball. Even though he is a year older than many in his class, Ubiles is nowhere near a finishes product and his performance at Portsmouth reveals that he still has plenty of upside.
Ubiles was one of the better prospects in attendance, showing an improved skill set while playing both primary and supporting roles for his team. While he is not likely to get drafted, he is a perfect candidate for the D-League, where he can continue to refine his game and gain experience against a higher level of competition than he saw in college.

Top NBA Draft Prospects in the Non-BCS Conferences (Part Four: #21-26)
November 19, 2008
6-6 combo forward Edwin Ubiles is coming off a very solid year, being the leading scorer on a team that won the Metro Atlantic conference and reached the second round of the NCAA tournament last season. Siena looks poised to make an even deeper run this season after being named the unanimous favorites to win the MAAC, as they returned all five starters from last year.
Ubiles is fairly productive right now (17 points in 33 minutes per game), but it’s his upside that potentially makes him intriguing. He has nice size for the wing at 6-6, and is a good athlete with a decent frame and a terrific wingspan. Physically he looks like he has the tools to play at the next level, even if he needs to add significant strength to do so.
Ubiles’ offensive game is largely based inside the arc, as he plays a good deal of minutes at the power forward position for Siena, which is a fast paced team. He has very nice touch on his long-range and especially mid-range jumper, shooting a very solid 53% from the floor and 42% from beyond the arc, albeit on just 2.4 attempts per game from downtown. It will be interesting to see what kind of production he can get from his 3-point stroke this season, as he will rely heavily on this part of his game if he’s to make it to the NBA. He only shoots 70% from the free throw line, which clearly needs to improve.
Ubiles can put the ball on the floor in a straight line and make his way to the basket, showing nice aggressive, solid creativity and even a bit of initial shake trying to beat his man from the perimeter. His ball-handling skills need plenty of work, though, as evidenced by the paltry amount of free throws he attempts at the MAAC level (3.4 per game), as he struggles changing directions with the ball. Ubiles is a very effective finisher around the rim, despite his lack of strength, showing really nice touch and smarts using the glass effectively, where his terrific length really becomes a factor helping him extend over MAAC defenders.
Defensively, Ubiles competes on almost every possession, using his size and length effectively to contest shots in the post and especially on the perimeter. His lack of strength is somewhat of a hindrance, as he struggles getting through screens and can get pushed off the ball going up against more physically developed matchups. His nice wingspan allows him to come up with a decent amount of blocks and steals, although he is a fairly poor rebounder for his position.
All in all Ubiles looks like a productive college player who may be able to develop into an NBA prospect down the road if he can continue to improve his body and polish up his skill-set. He has no consistent way of creating offense for himself, and there are major question marks about whether he’d be able to play in quite the same fashion if he had to go up against NBA sized athletes at his position on a nightly basis. Regardless, he still has two more seasons left to improve, so he’s definitely a name to keep in mind.
