NCAA Tournament: NBA Draft Stock Watch (National Championship)
April 4, 2006

Mbah a Moute started off the game attacking the basket strong, but meeting fierce competition in the form of Florida center Joakim Noah. Early in the first half, Mbah a Moute had two shots blocked by Noah as well as one more altered, which seemed to drastically change his appoach to the game. Following these possessions, he started looking very tentative, even scared, when he received the ball on the perimeter. Heíd either pass the ball away or pull up for the mid-range or three-point jumper, both of which he was unable to hit. Once the game was out of reach with under 10 minutes to go, Mbah a Mouteís aggressiveness returned in the form of a wide open lay-up, a wide open jam, and a putback jam. But for the part of the game that counted, Mbah a Moute was just not very effective.

He did do well on the boards, both getting rebounds and boxing out, but that was the basic extent of his contributions in the game. His defense was not especially good or bad. He didnít do anything significantly wrong, but also didnít do anything to make much of a difference.

As mentioned in last gameís report, Mbah a Moute has some things he needs to work on in his sophomore year. He needs to improve his ball-handling, further develop his jumper, and continue to improve on everything he already does well. He definitely has the potential to be a legitimate small forward prospect in the future, but also at the same time has a ways to go.

NCAA Tournament: NBA Draft Stock Watch (Final Four)

While freshmen like Tyler Hansbrough, Julian Wright, and Tyrus Thomas have stolen most of the newcomer headlines this season, UCLA's Luc Richard Mbah a Moute has consistently produced for Ben Howland all season long. He won Pac-10 Freshman of the Year over a very worthy candidate in Arizona's Marcus Williams, and came up huge on the biggest of stages on Saturday night. He fought for rebounds, slashed to the basket, got out on the break, and scored in the paint. Even LSU's imposing frontcourt had no answer for Mbah a Moute's physicality, athleticism, and versatility.

Mbah a Moute is one of those rare players that can play two positions equally well. While he started the season as more of a rebounding specialist PF, he is clearly developing into a player capable of playing the wing. Mbah a Moute has a great understanding of how to exploit matchups, using his athleticism and toughness in the paint, but also looking comfortable facing the basket out on the perimeter. He doesn't have an array of go-to moves yet, but is very productive as a blue collar style of player from all areas of the court. He understands how to play defense, and has the footspeed to guard on the perimeter. As he improves his ballhandling and adds range on his jumper, Mbah a Moute should develop into a very formidable NBA small forward prospect.
