NBA Comparison: Greg Foster

Aran Smith - 2/7/2008

Strengths: Left handed 6-10 post guy with great speed and athletic ability ... His speed allows him to beat his man down the court on a consistent basis ... He has supposedly been timed running a 4.4 in the 40 yard dash ... A hard worker who is very coachable ... Has solid strength and shows a willingness to bang inside ... Likes to face the basket from inside 12 feet ... Has an effective go-to move where he faces up, dribbles left and then shoots over his right shoulder ... Being left-handed helps his cause, as with any lefty, opponents have to adjust ... Shows a solid hook shot ... Raises his level of play in big games, as shown in his big performance against Tyler Hansbrough and UNC earlier this season ... Has shown solid improvement in his rebounding raising his per game average nearly 3 per game to around 9 rpg ... His passing ability has developed in his junior year. When doubled, he does a good job of finding open teammates ... Very durable. Has missed just one game in his college career ...

Weaknesses: Despite being an upperclassmen, Plaisted is very inconsistent and at times disappears mentally. He must develop better focus and consistency ... Lacks great back to the basket moves. Has improved in the post, but often relies too heavily on his athleticism, which doesn't work against similarly athletic players ... Despite his great leaping ability, he's not much of a shot blocker. Has short arms and doesn't seem to anticipate shot blocks well ... Small for the center position. Short arms also take away from his ability to rebound with diminished length ... A sub-par free throw shooter. His 55% free throw shooting limits his effectiveness offensively ... Must look to cut down on turnovers ...
