One of the best point guards in the Atlantic 10. He has shown the ability to score, defend, and distribute the ball during his time at Xavier. In his final year when he no longer had to be the focal point of the offense he has proven himself to be a very solid point guard. With what he has done in his time at college he can easily play in the IBL, IBA, ABA 2000, or overseas.
