Zach Lavine Scouting Report and Video Breakdown
by Jonathan Givony, Mike Schmitz

Zach LaVine came out of nowhere early on in the season and emerged as a productive shooter and finisher for UCLA.

Keith Appling Updated Scouting Report
by Joshua Riddell

Keith Appling's value lies in his ability to play solid defense, not make mistakes, and score occasionally in transition.

NBA Draft Prospect of the Week: T.J. Warren
by Mike Schmitz

T.J. Warren is the #2 scorer in college basketball, posting over 28 points per-40 minutes, with a strong 59% true shooting percentage. Barring a miracle (four wins in four days at the ACC Tournament), Warren will likely miss the NCAA Tournament, but has nonetheless strung together an extremely impressive season, and is coming off back to back 40-point outings.

NBA Draft Prospect of the Week: A.J. Hammons
by Mike Schmitz

A.J. Hammons is a rare breed of college basketball player, a long-armed 7-footer with a massive frame, solid mobility and a back to the basket game. Barring a Big Ten conference tournament miracle, his Purdue team will miss the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season, after making the Dance the previous six years before he arrived on campus.

NBA Draft Prospect of the Week: K.J. McDaniels
by Mike Schmitz

K.J. McDaniels has emerged from obscurity to develop into one of the best all-around players in college basketball, helping his Clemson squad to a 8-6 record in the ACC thus far.

NBA Draft Prospect of the Week: Deonte Burton
by Mike Schmitz

Deonte Burton is closing on 2,000 points scored in his college career, which he surprisingly decided to extend with a fourth and final season after an extended debate last year. Burton ranks among the top point guards in this draft class in a variety of categories, but is completely off the national media's radar and looks to be struggling to move the needle on his draft stock playing for a dysfunctional team that sports a mediocre 12-14 record in the Mountain West Conference. Nevertheless, he shows intriguing potential in a number of areas and might end up being a better pro than many thought coming out of college.
