NBA Comparison: Keith Bogans

Derrick Brownson - 3/18/2008

Strengths: Deadly three-point shooter with quick release ... Unlimited confidence from beyond the arc. Gets in a zone and is truly unconscious ... Can catch fire very quickly and is hard to cool off, just ask Kentucky who he scorched for 28 second half points including seven 3-point field goals en route to a 79-76 win at Kentucky Has a solid midrange game and uses pumps and fakes well to free himself up Terrific free-throw shooter at >80% for career Has solid size for his position Field goal percentage is in low 40's but because over two-thirds of his field goal attempts are 3-pointers, its not a major concern Moves well without the ball and gets to areas in which he can get a solid look at the basket Has a calm demeanor. Plays very mature, composed, not easily rattled ... Has some leadership skills ... A solid athlete though nothing off the charts ...

Weaknesses: Can be too reliant on the 3-point shot, making him too predictable and easier to guard Should improve his ball handling skills and look to attack the basket more Needs to cut down on turnovers Developing a balanced attack of an inside/out game would be beneficial and would enhance his great shooting abilities....Plays in the lackluster Conference USA which besides Memphis doesn't really have a high level of talent to challenge him Lacks great foot speed both laterally and his first step off the dribble His lack of great lateral speed could inhibit his ability to guard shooting guards on the next level At 23 years of age is two years old for his class (mainly because of year he had to sit out because of transfer rules) As a shooter he is definitely NBA caliber, he just needs to work on rounding out his overall game to maximize his potential for the next level...
