NBA Comparison: Flip Murray

Aran Smith – 3/7/2008

Strengths: Talented combo guard with excellent NBA potential … Prolific scorer, (over 25 ppg) … Has a quick first step and a killer crossover allowing him to blow by defenders and get into the paint … Does a good job of creating baskets for himself and others … Has precision passes for ally oops even from well beyond the three point arc … drives exceptionally well, with defenses collapsing on him … Has a great shot off the dribble, and is able to hit it going straight up or fading away … Has a terrific body for a point guard with size, length and strength … Can put points up in a hurry. Advanced mid-range game … Shows excellent vision and passing ability … A great defender. A bigtime ball hawk, fourth in the nation in steals … Shows great anticipation and his quick hands and feet make him a tremendous on ball defender … Gets good lift on his shot and shows a solid shooting form … An excellent shooter with 3-point range and consistency on his shot. Shoots threes at a high volume and great efficiency … His form and strength should allow him to step back 5 feet and hit the pro three with consistency in time … His body strength allows him to finish after contact, play physical and also helps his range … Knocks down free throws at a high percentage >80% … Solid rebounder for his position. Plays bigger than 6-3 with his long wing span … Unlike many prolific scorers, Hudson is unselfish getting teammates involved offensively, creating easy baskets for them … Clutch player who comes up with big shots when his team needs them … Highly competitive …

Weaknesses: Has not played at a high level of basketball, with just one season of Div 1 under his belt at UT Martin … Playing in the Ohio Valley Conference, his exploits are questioned … It’s tougher to project him for the next level playing against lesser players … Ends up playing off the ball a bit because hes so effective scoring … He shows quality passing and ball handling ability, but can he run a team? …Must develop his point guard instincts, controlling tempo and overall PG duties … Still needs to prove himself as a floor general. Very creative passing the ball, but will need to cut down on turnovers … Not incredibly explosive. He’s a strong athlete without question but is quicker and stronger than he is explosive … Will turn 24 in August, which diminishes his intrigue some … His long road to Div 1 basketball is a story of perseverance, but also leaves scouts with cause for concern … Having lacked structure and discipline for a few years following high school, Hudson appears to be a changed man with a new found maturity …
