Missed 26 games due to a turf toe injury in his right foot...Returned from injury to score a team-high 14 points against Hampton in the NCAA Tournament...Finished with a team-high 28 points in a Sweet 16 loss to Arizona...Scored in double figures in all of the 11 contests in which he appeared in 2010-11...Exhibited true point guard skills with a natural feel for the game as well as an uncanny ability to get in the paint and create...Near-consensus No. 1 pick by draft experts...Can get in lane with quick first step but must improve strength to be able to consistently finish at the next level...Shows penchant to make those around him better...Efficient shooter with good, consistent form and ability to pull up off dribble...Great handle, relies on highly effective crossover...Missed time has raised questions about durability.
