    Can you tell us anything about his playing style or personality. I think it's safe to say that, whenever football season is Buckeyes are uninformed on basketball :) .

    2004 Stats

    NBA Comparison:

    Strengths: Tremendous shooter with great range. Can catch and shoot equally as well as he can shoot off the dribble. NBA caliber physique with outstanding athleticism. Has sensational body control and is able to avoid the charge when penetrating. Has great explosion off the dribble. Can get to the rack on any defender. Is an excellent passer and penetrater. Is a scoring point guard who makes others around him better. Has good floor vision, and is a slick ball handler.

    Weaknesses: Needs to concentrate all the time on defense. He has the ability to shut his man down when he stays focused. Tends to get bored with lesser competition.
