NBA Comparison: Eric Snow

Strengths: The definition of a bull in a China shop. Extremely physical and aggressive guard … Gets into the lane at will … Has the ability to finish creatively around the basket … Knows how to position his body and maneuver in the air to get off shots in the paint … Capable of playing both on and off the ball … More of a lead guard, but was willing to play multiple positions/roles at Kentucky … Very vocal leader … A second coach on the floor … Doesn’t waste dribbles, takes only the necessary amount to get to where he needs to go … Great all-around defender … Often matched up against the opposing team's best player … Has wide shoulders and a strong base that allows him to body up with bigger players .... Has the size of a small NBA SG … Wingspan (6'10) allows him to contest shots when he’s matched against taller players … Active as a rebounder … Not afraid to stick his nose in on the boards and do the dirty work … Strong hands let him snatch rebounds away from opponents … Is involved on the boards on both the offensive and defensive ends …

Weaknesses: Tweener, lacking ideal point guard skills, and the shooting and ideal size for the 2 ... Jack of all trades, master of none. Solid skill set but doesn't really stand out in any area, aside from his toughness ... Still not a threat from the perimeter … After talk of an improvement Briscoe was reluctant to shoot from deep … Misses badly when he isn’t in rhythm … Will probably need to completely overhaul his shot to get to an adequate level … Spent most of his time at Kentucky off the ball, will have to prove that he is capable of running an offense … Can be hot headed. Prideful and quick to let it be known—to an opponent or an official—when he feels like things aren’t going his way … Has the passion and fight coaches love, but his chippie play can go too far at times … Needs to get in better shape, cut back some of the body fat, to improve as an athlete …

Outlook: Briscoe’s ability to get into the lane whenever he wants is a huge plus and combined with his ability to defend multiple positions he is going to be on team's radars … He is a consistent jumpshot away from paving out a role for himself on an NBA team …

Notes: Measured 6'2.5 (in shoes) 210 lbs, with a 6'8.5 wingspan at the 2012 LeBron James Skills Academy ... Measured 6'3.5 (in shoes) 214 lbs, with a 6'8.5 wingspan at the 2013 Nike Guard Skills Academy ... Measured 6'3, 219.7 lbs, with a 6'9 wingspan and 8'4.5 reach at the 2014 USA U18 tryouts ... Measured 6'2.25 without shoes, 6'3.25 with shoes, 215.5 lbs, with a 6'9.5 wingspan and 8'4 standing reach at the 2015 USA U19 tryouts
