NBA Comparison: Tony Douglas

Strengths: Well-rounded point guard with excellent leadership qualities ... Solid size for a point guard ... Impressive speed and agility ... Has the lateral quickness to stay in front of his man ... Competitive defender ... Understands how to get steals (2.2 SPG) without sacrificing position or picking up a cheap foul ... Good leaping ability ... Balances his great scoring ability with great playmaking ability ... Solid assist to turnover ratio (5.3 assists to 2.7 turnovers) ... Can score when isolated because of his quick first step and ability to drive to either hand ... Works very well in pick and roll situations ... Respectable shooting ability that keeps the defense honest ... Shot an average of 7.39 free throws a game this season and made 85.3% of them ... Aggressive rebounder for a point guard, averaged 5.8 per game as a senior ... Knows how to control the pace and tempo of the game ... Tough player with a calm demeanor ...

Weaknesses:
Solid at everything but doesn't stand out in any facet ... A "jack of all trades" kind of point guard ... Very thin ... Weighed in at less than 175 lbs at the NBA Draft Combine, though he has good wiry strength to compensate ... Like many mid-major draft prospects, was depended on to score a lot of points so still needs to prove he can be a true point guard ... Inconsistent shooting ability ... Plays better with the ball in his hands ...

Overall:
Cole is an impressive all-around player, though he fails to stand out in any specific area ... Both his efficiency and effectiveness should improve once adapts to more playing with more offensively gifted teammates in the NBA ... Could appeal to an NBA team as a potential back-up point guard in the second round of this year's draft ...

Tyler Ingle 6/3/11

Strengths: Has good size for a point guard … Solid ball handling ability … Good vision. Does a good job of keeping his head up and finding teammates for baskets … Strong offensive player ... Has an excellent pull up off the dribble and shoots with range ... Excellent shooting form ... Quality ball handler ... Good one on one skills … Shows the ability to get by his man and get to the rim …

Weaknesses: Appears to be a better scorer than facilitator … Playing in the Horizon league, his exploits will be tempered …
