NBA Scouting Reports, Southeastern Division (Part 2)
May 9, 2008
Overview: A diminutive point guard who has the smarts, strength, and court vision to create opportunities for teammates and score for himself. Undersized for the point guard spot. Compact build. Pretty quick and fast, but not a freak. Solid as a point guard and a scorer. Doesn't let his size limit him as much as it has similarly sized players—a testament to his toughness and heart. Proved himself time and time again at Saint Josephs. Won the Naismith Player of the Year Award as a senior in 2004. A very solid player who could be even better next to the right backcourt partner.

Offense: A talented point guard who is doing a better job getting his teammates involved. Gets more than half of his touches running the pick and roll, but will also push the ball in transition and get some opportunities as a spot up shooter. Displays a compact jumper with decent consistency. Can shoot the three ball at a decent clip. Decent midrange game. Does more damage attacking the rim than pulling up off the dribble. Great ball handler. Likes to drive right. Very hard to stay in front of due to his quickness. Will finish at the rim at a mediocre clip due to his lack of size. Gets creative with his floaters and lay ins. Tries to get to the line, and shoots a few foul shots each game. Shoots a good percentage from the charity stripe. Makes a living as a distributor, even though his lack of size makes it tough for him to see the entire floor at times. Ability to turn the corner consistently makes him a threat to draw the defense and draw and dish at all times. Does quite a bit of playmaking, but could stand to look for his shot less often to improve his overall efficiency, something he is slowly improving on.

Defense: A ball hawk whose size makes him susceptible to switches. Does a very good job defending ball handlers the length of the floor and denying penetration. Fights through screens and has the quickness to recover in most scenarios. Has a tough time contesting jump-shooters due to his lack of size and length. Possesses clearly defined defensive strength and weaknesses. Does what he can do well. Gives a very solid effort, but doesn't cause many turnovers. Grabs every long rebound he possibly can in an effort to spark a transition opportunity.
