Porter's Career-High 22 Points lead No. 15 Georgetown Past Longwood, 89-53
Big things were expected from Otto Porter this season and since he returned from a head injury sustained in Georgetown's first game, it seems that he is living up to expectations. After getting a career high 22 points and 7 assists last night against Longwood, Porter is showing a definite improvement in his overall game. His jumpshot appears to be much more fluid and he is taking care of the ball at a high rate considering his use in the offense.
Defensively, he is averaging 2.4 spg and 1.6 bpg. Though he only grabbed 4 boards in last nights win, Porter has proven to be an aggressive rebounder overall on both sides of the court. The jury is still out as to whether he can convert to a full time 3 man at the next level, though he has at the very least worked on the perimeter aspect of his game. Regardless, Porter has taken a nice step forward and should be garnering lottery looks come June 2013.
