NBA Comparison: Terry Larrier

Strengths: His fluidity, athleticism, shooting form and solid defense makes him stand out … A good on-ball defender that can contain his man … A good scorer, especially from deep … In his senior year at Kansas, he shot 45.5% from 3-point range … Takes full advantage of catch-and-shoot opportunities, fires and releases with a fast, fluid motion … Solid scorer off the dribble … Possesses great leaping ability for his height (6’5’’) … When he is locked in, he makes impactful defensive and game-changing plays, occasionally getting a big-time block … Has a huge wingspan in the neighborhood of 7′ …

Weaknesses:
Tends to ball watch on both ends of the floor and has lapses defensively … Can be too passive on offense … His 0.7 assist/turnover ratio is concerning, especially since a baseline of passing will be necessary for role playing guards in the NBA … Rarely drives to his left, which is something he will need to get more comfortable doing … Tends to turn his back on his man, giving the opponent open shot opportunities … Perhaps his most noticeable downfall is his attitude … Body languange showed his frustration and lack of maturity at times … Sometimes lacked effort, costing him a starting role with the Jayhawks … Rarely congratulated or helped teammates off the floor … Took a leave of absence in February for personal matters and never returned to the team …Lacks great body strength …

Outlook: An athletic and offensive-minded combo guard that has the ability to shoot lights out, as he did to start the 2018-19 season … His 3-point game should translate well … Has much more potential on offense if his ball handling could catch up to his athleticism … Inbility to finish season with team a concern … Has not developed a very good reputation, lacks discipline and focus …

Notes:
Averaged 14.1 PPG on 47.6% shooting, 4.0 RPG, 1.9 APG and 1.2 SPG in 23 games played this season for Kansas … His scoring improved in each season with the Jayhawks … A key contributor to Kansas’ Final Four run in 2018 … All-Big 12 Honorable Mention (2018) … Averaged 27.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 3.0 steals in 2014-15 at Douglass High School, leading his division in scoring and made 3-pointers as a senior …
