NBA Comparison: Keyon Dooling

James Burbridge – 8/2/2006

Strengths: Has good size for a PG … Excellent anticipation on defense … Struggled offensively early on in the season, but eventually developed into the Jayhawks second leading scorer … Raised his scoring average to 14 ppg during the rugged Big 12 regular season … Was second on the team in assists behind starting PG Russell Robinson, so the ability to play PG seems to be there, but he needs to improve his A/TO ratio and show the confidence to run a team … Seemed to find himself as the season went on … Can really stroke the ball too, as evidenced by his McDonalds All-American three point shootout victory and 48 3 pointers (38%) in his freshman year.

Weaknesses: Would have liked to see more PG ability his freshman year since he came out of high school as a highly touted PG. Still must prove himself as a point guard. Led the team in turnovers as a freshman with 88. Needs to show improvement in the ball handling department and needs to show the ability to make his teammates better and display better decision making on offense.

Notes: Broke Darnell Valentines freshman steals record with 89. Could dramatically improve his stock if he can prove hes more than short two guard who can score at the collegiate level. If he can display more pure PG skills, given his size he could find his way into the lottery given the value of team leading point guards who can dictate the flow of a game.
