Named First Team All-Big 12 Conference, Big 12 All-Rookie Team, Big 12 Newcomer of the Year, and Associated Press honorable mention All-American in 2011-12...Was the only player in the nation to lead his team in five major statistical categories: points (13.4), rebounding (9.3), assists (5.0), steals (1.1) and blocks (0.9)...Averaged 19 ppg, 11 rpg, 3.0 apg, 1.5 spg and shot 71.4 percent from the floor in the 2012 NCAA Tournament...A rare blend of across-the-statsheet talent...Thick and powerful frame, and displays great speed for a player his size...Runs the court very well and is a remarkable ball-handler...Passing skills exceed many top point guard prospects...Strong rebounder and a quality defender...While he boasts a decent mid-range jumper, he is not a threat from long range...A very poor free-throw shooter (.498), which is worrisome considering how often he has the ball in his hands...Some off-the-court concerns and suffers from anxiety disorder...One of the most high risk/high reward players in this draft class.
