On Wednesday October 9th Western Kentucky held their 2nd NBA pro day at E.A. Diddle Arena. Around a dozen scouts were in attendance.
Here are 3 takeaways from others at the event.
Charles Bassey has improved his body, much leaner heading into his sophomore campaign.
Bassey will likely be asked to play more minutes with the lack of depth in the WKU front court this season. Last season Bassey averaged 31.4 minutes per game. Stansbury will probably try and get Charles around the 35 minutes a game mark if possible.
I mean look at this guy, you can tell a difference. By the way, he’s only 18.
Anderson’s shot continues to improve each off season. If you remember when Josh first got here his jump shot was a real weakness for him, heading into his sophomore year we began to see a real improvment in his shot. This year is more of the same, Anderson’s shot is more fluid and natural now. Look for him to be respected more from outside 15 feet this season.
Coming into the season I wondered whether or not freshmen point guard would be able to shoot at the college level. Coming out of high school Rawls had a bit of a hitch in his shot, Similar to Anderson.
This video suggest that Rawls shot is smooth and quick. Suggesting he should be able to get his shot off effectively at the college level.
This event gets me even more ready for the season. We will all have a chance to see the Hilltoppers at Hilltopper Hysteria on October 17th.
See you in Diddle! @WKUConnect
