NBA Comparison: Brad Miller/Troy Murphy

Aran Smith - 12/17/2007

Strengths: Throwback type of back to the basket center with a great feel for the game Great understanding and fundamentals in the post Has developed a high skill level at a young age courtesy of the terrific Australian Institute of Sport program Creates a wide base posting his man up and calling for the ball each time down Seels his man well and uses polished post moves, drop steps etc. to score Soft and sure set of hands is a huge asset Excellent touch on his shot. Converts around 80% from the line and a high percentage from the floor Has a lovely hook shot that he has really perfected Great attitude and motivation level. Consistently competes with a high level of energy and effort Good strength and toughness. Willing to battle inside Uses positioning well to box out and gather boards Has a tremendous IQ for a center, sees the floor, passes especially well and can even handle the ball when necessary

Weaknesses: Upside limited to some degree by a lack of size/length. At 6-10, he lacks optimum size to play the center position at the next level Not overly explosive but solid Not a real factor defensively. Doesn't have the length or explosiveness to be a shot blocking presence, plays small for his size May struggle to get shots off against NBA centers Not a huge rebounder. Should improve in this area with more strength, but lacks the length, quickness and explosiveness to be a great rebounder

Outlook: Ogilvy has solid strength but he doesn't have the frame to be an overpowering center on the next level. His bread and butter will likely be as a finesse guy knocking down 12-15 foot jumpers and great vision la Brad Miller
