NBA Comparison: Greg Foster

Aran Smith – 2/7/2008

Strengths: Left handed 6-10 post guy with great speed and athletic ability … His speed allows him to beat his man down the court on a consistent basis … He has supposedly been timed running a 4.4 in the 40 yard dash … A hard worker who is very coachable … Has solid strength and shows a willingness to bang inside … Likes to face the basket from inside 12 feet … Has an effective go-to move where he faces up, dribbles left and then shoots over his right shoulder … Being left-handed helps his cause, as with any lefty, opponents have to adjust … Shows a solid hook shot … Raises his level of play in big games, as shown in his big performance against Tyler Hansbrough and UNC earlier this season … Has shown solid improvement in his rebounding raising his per game average nearly 3 per game to around 9 rpg … His passing ability has developed in his junior year. When doubled, he does a good job of finding open teammates … Very durable. Has missed just one game in his college career …

Weaknesses: Despite being an upperclassmen, Plaisted is very inconsistent and at times disappears mentally. He must develop better focus and consistency … Lacks great back to the basket moves. Has improved in the post, but often relies too heavily on his athleticism, which doesn’t work against similarly athletic players … Despite his great leaping ability, he’s not much of a shot blocker. Has short arms and doesn’t seem to anticipate shot blocks well … Small for the center position. Short arms also take away from his ability to rebound with diminished length … A sub-par free throw shooter. His 55% free throw shooting limits his effectiveness offensively … Must look to cut down on turnovers …
