DRAFT ANALYSIS - 2006 First Team AP All-American...2006 Pac-10 Player of the Year...2006 Wooden Award Finalist...Had a brilliant senior season in which he ranked second in the Pac-10 in scoring (20.2 ppg) and third in field-goal percentage (.508)...Very intelligent...Makes good decisions in key situations...Has a ton of experience...Fearless when driving down the lane...Can create opportunities for himself as well as his teammates...One of the more impressive ball-handlers in this draft...Developed his mid-range shot during final season at Washington...Above-average shooter from the foul line...Talented enough to take over almost any contest...Does not have the foot speed to be a shut-down defender...Leaping ability is nothing special...Overall, a very good player who should develop into a solid pro.
