NBA Comparison: Gary Neal/George Hill

Strengths: Shooting guard with a mature, composed, smooth all around game ... Highly versatile with some ability to play either guard position ... Makes excellent decisions, focused, always thinking, never in a rush ... Stronger in the half court than full court due to his discipline and decision making ... Solid vision ... Very unselfish. Team player who could probably score a lot more if he was in another system or worried more about personal accolades than wins ... Has one of the prettiest shooting strokes on the college level: Squares to the basket, gets a wide base, good elevation, shoots with a high release point, gets the ball off quickly and with excellent follow through ... (44% from 3) Has a smooth pull up jumper off the dribble ... Shoots well in catch and shoot ... Will make you pay if he's left open ... Likes to take big shots ... Handles like a point guard and is equally adept using either hand, in fact appears better with his left ... His ball handling, vision and experience playing the point could allow him to play the position within the rotation at the next level ... Comfortable bringing the ball up and handling the ball against speedy guards ... Can take the ball coast to coast ... Good one on one skills, has a crossover, uses hesitation moves, ball fakes and shiftiness and shows an excellent ability to create shots for himself ... Finishes well with either hand ... Able to utilize a floater in the lane over bigger defenders ... Works hard to free himself for shots off the ball ... Will surprise with his athleticism and go up and flush one if he gets a lane to the basket ... Solid rebounder despite not being an explosive standstill leaper ... Good at tipping the ball ... Plays the passing lanes well. Solid ball hawk ...

Weaknesses: His versatility is great but... Not a pure point guard and he's undersized for the SG position ... Lack of quickness could create problems for him getting free for shots at the next level ... Quickness is solid, but doesn't have an elite level first step. Will not be able to blow by elite, longer athletes ... A below average athlete when you take his size into consideration. Has more athleticism than he plays with at all times ... A good passer but just average by point guard standards ... Lacks visibility playing in the Colonial Athletic Association ... Short stride limits his speed in open floor ... Runs into trouble sometimes when he overpenetrates as he isn't explosive enough to finish in traffic ... 75% from the FT line doesn't do his shooting ability justice ... Shooting numbers were surprisingly low as a junior ...

Notes: Leads George Mason in scoring at 15.3 ppg. Has shown steady improvement in his scoring output throughout his career ...
