Was named the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Tournament, and also was named the Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year ... Ended his senior season at UConn with 18 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 4.9 apg, 1.8 spg, and hit 40.5 percent of his 3-point tries ... Took his game to a new level during his senior season, and became more of a pure point guard by raising his assist totals and reducing his shot attempts ... Wants the ball in clutch situations; lives for the big-game moments ... Extremely quick player who has a knack for scoring both on and off the dribble ... Sometimes takes control of the ball too much, but showed he can cut down on mistakes and up his game intelligence ... Is a fearless player and leader that will fight for everything he can possibly earn.
