2013

Strengths: Tough player who prides himself on his defense ... Good on-ball defender ... Great in the passing lanes, one of the premier theft artists in the NCAA during his time at Montana ... Very good nose for the ball, contributed on the glass well for a PG ... Played big minutes through most of his career while mostly guarding the other teams best player ... Has some penetrating ability offensively ... Got to the line quite a bit, aggressive ... Cut down fouls by a nice margin as a senior ... Showed improvement as a passer, gets his teammates involved ... Showed leadership qualities, led the Griz to two straight NCAA Tournament berths out of the Big Sky ... Solid quickness with and without the ball ... Wiry strong, not afraid of contact, competitor

Weaknesses: After seemingly improving as an outside shooter as a junior, struggled greatly as a senior, particularly from 3 point range ... Turned the ball over at a very high rate ... Despite the recent success of Damian Lillard, the Big Sky does still tend to bring up question marks surrounding ones level of competition faced ... Sat out teams first 7 games with a broken foot, than missed some more time when he reinjured the foot in early March ... Relatively small and can have trouble with size, particularly on the offensive end ... Has struggled when facing NBA level PG opponents during his time at Montana

Notes: Finished his career averaging 2.3 spg ... Was arrested near the end of April, which is something that could deter teams from drafting him ... A viable choice as a back-up PG down the line, a competitor that should at the very least get a shot to be on a Summer League roster ...
