An undersized point guard for Bob Hurley's Saint Anthony squad, Myles Mack (#83 Scout, #119 Rivals, #85 ESPN) was perhaps the best pure shooter of anyone we saw at the Hoophall Classic, hitting a ridiculous 6-for-7 from three-point range and 11-for-14 overall on the way to 28 points in his team's win.
Boasting smooth and quick textbook shooting mechanics, Mack has extreme confidence in his shot and is capable of scoring both spotting up and pulling up. His range extends beyond the college three-point line and he has no problem shooting the ball on the move, exhibiting excellent balance on pull ups.
Attacking off the dribble, Mack has a solid step and pretty good quickness, showing a nice second gear in transition as well. He didn't do much with his dribble-drive in the game we saw, and didn't need to the way his shot was falling, but he appears to be able to penetrate decently well.
As for point guard skills, Mack appears to be more of a game manager than break down the defense shot creator, getting most of his assists through flow of the offense passes or simple drive-and-kicks, spending a good deal of his time off the ball.
Defensively, Mack plays the high-energy, focused style of team defense that's always expected from Hurley's players, keeping his hands up at all times off the ball, playing good prevent defense to keep his man from receiving passes, and making some solid steals by showing good anticipation. His size may pose some problems against more physical opponents at the next level, but the toughness is certainly there.
Looking forward, Mack will likely have to transition to playing more of a true point guard role in college, as he currently splits ball-handling duties with point forward teammate Kyle Anderson, allowing him to spend a lot of time off the ball. Whether he can still consistently get his shot off so easily against bigger, more athletic opponents in the NCAA will be very important for his success.
