NBA Comparison: Cliff Rozier

Aran Smith - 10/4/2006

Strengths: Big power forward with good size and strength and a solid offensive game Very smooth shooting the ball from 12 feet and in with a jump hook shot that he uses effectively Has a big frame with long arms and good agility With more time on the floor, he could see his offensive numbers improve considerably His great wingspan makes him an effective rebounder and shot blocker Has a good free throw shot but lacks concentration, capable of shooting in the mid 70s if he works at it His post moves show promise, but he needs to refine them

Weaknesses: Doesnt display a great motor. Needs to learn to play with a higher level of intensity to better maximize his talents Does not show a fondness for contact, despite his excellent body and apparent strength Needs to get more physical and use his 255 pound frame to dominate in the post Conditioning also must improve. He averaged just 22 minutes per game as a sophomore Lacks great speed in the open floor, looks a little stiff in transition His numbers actually dipped from his freshman to sophomore season after coming in with high expectations Doesnt get to the free throw line nearly enough for a post player, needs to force the issue under the basket more often Lack of foot speed limits his ability to grab rebounds out of his area

Notes: Last seasons team focused on Ronnie Brewer and Johnathan Modica offensively limiting Townes offensive touches. He also lost PT with the emergence of Charles Thomas and Steven Hill ... With newcomers Gary Ervin and Sonny Weems in the backcourt, as well as freshman PF Mike Washington, 2006-07 is a big year for him to establish himself.
