Notes:
2013: Selected by San Antonio in 2nd round (58th overall) of the NBA Draft.

First Team All-Big Ten Conference and Third Team All-America selection in 2012-13...Led the Big Ten in scoring as a junior with 19.8 ppg while also adding 5.9 rpg...Scored 20 points or more in all four of Ohio State`s NCAA Tournament games in 2013, including 23 in the Elite Eight matchup with Wichita State...Top-flight scorer who can fill up the bucket in a variety of different ways...Impressive moves with back to the basket...Solid 3-point shooter...Can put the ball on the floor and drive to the hoop...Excels at forcing contact in the paint and is a strong free-throw shooter (.830)...Decent rebounder, especially at the offensive end...Not a great athlete...Doesn`t possess enough lateral speed or quickness to be a starting small forward and isn`t big or physical enough to play power forward...Majority of opportunities in college came in overpowering weaker players...Not much of a defender...Lacks big upside but natural scoring ability makes him a solid value pick late in the draft.
