His game resembles Taylor Braun. JTown was up by 11 with 1:30 left when I left.
    He doe get sloppy because he is forcing the action at times early in the game. Needs to get that under control. Defenses key on him and make the other 4 beat them. Kid can get his shot off in all sorts of traffic. My biggest thing with him is mentally just needs to relax and let the game come to him early instead of forcing it. R-E-L-A-X to quote Rodgers

    My boss hates it when I shorten his name to Dick, mainly because his name is Steven.

    The nice part about getting to the college level is that your supporting cast is much stronger so you don't have to force the action as much as just play your game within the offense. The only downside to it is if it causes a player to lose that aggressive mindset, we saw it happen to AJ when he was here. Scoring machine in high school, got to NDSU and seemed comfortable relying on his teammates and not being aggressive. When players find that blend of being aggressive without forcing it that's when they shine, hopefully that's where he'll end up.

    Yes, it is a balancing act of being aggressive and comfortable. Glad we have him coming to NDSU as well.
