    A real nice 3 level scorer. His defense?

    How many games did he play? Any way to calibrate the competition level for the tournament?

    I think his shooting is going to translate because it looks smooth and he has a really quick release - which is critical for his size. I also like his activity overall with dribble handoffs, ball screens, and steals - there can be a risk for a player like him to turn into a “chucker” and he’s clearly more engaged within the framework of the system to be more than that. I’m also not worried about the “weakness” highlighted in the video of shot selection because I think that is situational with that team and his role to a point.

    What I was hoping to see a little more of was size and athleticism. I didn’t expect those to be a strength, but I was hoping to see some progress in those areas since the last time I watched him. He still seems like the smallest player on the court and his ability to free up space for himself still falls into the “crafty” category and not the “impressive” category.

    I am still positive about his potential and excited to see him mature next year and arrive at Michigan - I just don’t know what his ceiling is as a bit of an undersized combo guard.

    I would say it varies wildly by game. 3rd place is a good finish for Germany, though.
