NBA Comparison: Jeff Hornacek

Aran Smith – 3/12/2006

Strengths: A player with great knowledge and understanding of the game … Mr Intangibles, does all the little things to help his team win … Out thinks opponents … Extremely competitive, great will to win … Hustles for every loose ball, his passion and energy are contagious … Smart player, makes great decisions … Extremely effective offfensive player … Tremendous shooter, one of the top three point shooters in the country … Has range and great form on his shot … Quick release, which is important getting shots off against bigger and more athletic defenders … Also has a clever mid range game … Great attitude, works hard to improve … Takes what the defense gives him. Doesn’t over dribble, good ball handler … Uses the dribble and ball fakes well to set up his jump shot … Has good vision and passing ability … Sound defender, plays smart defense, doesn’t gamble … Does a little of everything, grabs rebounds, steals … Deceptive athleticism, he’s clever at creating space for shots and getting open … Great composure …

Weaknesses: He’ll turn 24 this year … Doesn’t look like an NBA player based on his body and athleticism … Undersized, and not extremely fast … What you see is what you get, his upside is somewhat limited by age and the fact that his game is as complete as it is … Lacks a tremendous first step … Not a big leaper or a specimen type of athlete … Strictly a shooting guard, lacks the overall skills to play the PG position … Free throw shooting fell off some as a Senior, but is solid … Can be a streaky shooter, but finds ways to contribute when he’s cold …

Notes: Played his first 2 years at St. Bonaventure before transferring to West Virginia … Helped lead West Virginia to the Elite Eight in his junior season.
