2014 Albert Schweitzer Tournament - Elite Prospects
May 13, 2014


Jonathan Givony

Strengths:
-Strong frame
-Very good athlete
-Extremely competitive
-Outstanding offensive rebounder (5.2 per-40 in Germany)
-Excellent defender
-Tough as nails
-Terrific anticipation skills getting in the passing lanes (4.4 steals per-40)
-Finishes very well around the basket, often through contact
-Can handle the ball and go coast to coast
-Very effective attacking the rim from the perimeter in the half-court thanks to strong first step and aggressive style
-Blocks shots on occasion

Weaknesses:
-A little undersized for a power forward at around 6-8
-Needs to improve the consistency of his jump-shot
-Shoots a knuckleball jumper
-Only shot 63% from free throw line
-Aggressive style of play makes him a little turnover prone at times. Doesn't always know limitations

Outlook: No-name three star recruit from a small high school who is not on any recruiting service's radar screen, but emerged as one of the best players in Germany. Came out of nowhere to have a tremendous tournament (19 points, 11 rebounds, 3.4 steals in 30 minutes per game, 65% FG%) and help lead the US to the Gold Medal game, where they fell to Italy. Heading to Wisconsin, where he will face steep competition for immediate playing time, but should be able to work on his weaknesses and improve significantly.
