Game Scouted: High Point vs Winthrop

 

Winthrop Wins 82-70

 

Jahaad Proctor, G, 6’3”, 205 lbs, SO

 

Strengths

Plays with great pace and poise. Can play on or off the ball. Does a nice job of keeping defender on his hip and changing speeds off the ball screen. Crafty player.

Terrific in the midrange where he can shoot the floater or the pull-up. Consistent shooter from the perimeter.

Excellent playmaker. Can create his own offense and does a nice job of creating shots for others. Has good perimeter footwork.

Strong player who can take contact and uses his muscle to get to his spots and overpower smaller guards off the bounce. Uses his size to post up smaller guards.

Can finish at the rim- better finisher then he showed tonight. Can score the ball in various ways and attack from a variety of angles.

Defensively he showed good quickness and stays in front of the ball. Equally good on the defensive side of the ball as offensive side. Uses his length well on this end. Defends the ball baseline to baseline.  

 

Weaknesses

Lacks athleticism and quickness. Needs to improve his ability to finish with his left hand. Motor needs to be a little better.

A little above average 3 pt shooter- doesnt get much elevation on his shot and misses are inconsistent- something he can continue to improve and I believe he will.

 

Overall

Entered this game leading the team in assists per game at 3.4 and is tied for 1st in scoring at 16.6 ppg.

First season playing at High Point as he redshirted last year after transfering from Iona.

Has a great chance to be the Big South player of the Year either next year or as a senior. Future pro.
