Hmmm very interesting. Averaged 16 and 8 with 2.7 steals a game. Not a good shooter though. At his size he better work on his shooting. Good luck to him. What a waste for Terry. Could have easily played SF in an attacking offense.

His overall shooting percentage (.473) is solid, but yeah, his 3 point (.321) and free throw (.564) shooting need a lot of work, especially since he would be asked to play the 2 spot at the next level. He would have benefitted from another year at Coppin State to work on those parts of his game.

At UTEP he started really slow out of the gate, playing poorly in the exhibition game and the first few regular season games. I thought that he improved as the season wore on, and was contributing with energy and hustle whenever he got a chance before the OOC portion of the schedule ended. Of course, Terry doesn't reward good play in one game with playing time in the next (hell, one game Stroud had a fantastic first half of a game and didn't see time again until at least two or three games later). Tarke could have definitely helped out tremendously here with the right coaching.

Agree. He has the size and athleticism to make it in the NBA. Can he refine his game enough to success there? Tough one to call.
