Named Second Team All-Big Ten Conference in 2011-12 after averaging 14.5 ppg, 5.0 rpg and 2.7 apg...Scored in double figures in four of Ohio State`s five NCAA Tournament games, including 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting in the championship game against Kansas...Showed remarkable consistency during four-year college career, averaging 11.3 ppg as a freshman and 14.4 ppg in both his sophomore and junior years...Despite the slight improvement in scoring from his junior to senior season, he saw a considerable drop-off in both field goal percentage (.462 to .419) and three-point field goal percentage (.442 to .358)...Athletic, agile and explosive...High, quick release makes him an effective shooter, though downtick in percentages is a cause for concern...At his best when creating a rhythm for himself, but also effective in catch-and-shoot situations coming off screens...Long arms and quick feet make him rock solid on defense...Must learn to utilize his athleticism by becoming a better ball-handler...Not a terrible passer but not a real strength either...One-on-one skills are average at best.
