So this whole abbreviated shooting narrative isn't accurate. The kid can flat out shoot.
I liked the pick, but this isn't accurate. The 47.5% was his 2pt shot rate, he shot 33.7% from 3 his freshman year.
O damn you're right. I slipped on that one.
Vandy was absolutely terrible his Freshman year. 0-18 in the SEC I believe. His percentages weren't great, but neither were the looks he was getting. He still stood out as a shooter big time the couple of times I watched him.
If he'd stayed healthy for conference play, those numbers would have come back to earth again.
All that said, make no mistake about it, kid can shoot the rock with anybody.
Wasn't my top choice, but still a very good to great pickup imo
