Euroleague Final Four: Nike International Junior Tournament
May 8, 2009

Spanish point guard Oscar Alvarado was the engine of Gran Canaria’s offense here in Berlin, looking like an excellent prospect for European basketball for the coming years. He’s a true point guard who can distribute the ball with either hand and does an excellent job running the pick and roll, where to likes to find teammates off the dribble. His quickness and aggressiveness allow him to get to the basket at will at this level and make a living at the free throw line, although his wild style of play sometimes makes him very turnover prone. His shooting mechanics need work, even if he is capable of making jumpers. Defensively, his lack of size, strength and length limits his potential on this end somewhat. He does seem to have excellent leadership skills and a real flair for running a team confidently already at his young age. His upside is not off the charts, but he looks like a pretty safe bet to develop into a solid professional player.
