Mardy Collins – 1/2/2006

Strengths: At 6-6 he’s got the ability to run the show from the point guard position … Very smooth offensive abilities … Plays a controlled game, doesn’t try to be too flashy or make spectacular plays, keeps it simple and effective … Excellent vision and passing … Shooting mechanics and fundamentals are very good … Good ball handler … Long arms help out with closing passing lanes and getting to the rim … Good defender coming out of the Temple system which emphasizes defense … Excellent at anticipating passes, ball hawking style … Great team player, excellent versatility … Extremely durable player, plays almost 40 minutes every game, and rarely if ever misses a start.

Weaknesses: Never a bigtime scorer, although the Temple system limits him somewhat in that regard … Shooting %s have never been great from outside, although these numbers get hurt by collapsing defenses and forced shots taken with the shot clock running low … Lacks a very athletic body, especially on appearance … Not a very physical player, should use his size advantage better offensively … Not a huge leaper, lacks great explosiveness or a devastating first step … Upside is decent, but not off the charts … One of those guys who is solid in a number of areas, but fails to stand out in any one area … Must become better at moving without the ball, can be a little too ball dependant … Free throw shooting is below average …
