Vote for the '12-'13 NCAA Freshman Player of the Year

Shabazz Muhammad

by Jerry Meyer - 03/01/2012

A relentless competitor, Muhammad is a physical wing scorer who loves to attack the basket. He also has a reliable jump shot and a terrific turn around jumper in the post. Also, a danger on the glass, Muhammad is a solid ball handler and passer, but is not known for his ability to create for teammates. on the other side of the ball, he is an above average defender.


Nerlens Noel
Strengths:
An absolutely incredible shot blocker with uncanny defensive instincts. Noel has good size, length, and quick bounce to go along with precise timing and incredible mobility and agility. He is like a one-man zone with his ability to protect the basket inside the paint but is also a threat to fly out to the perimeter and erase mistakes when the situations warrants. Offensively, he has some rapidly emerging tools. He gets a ton of dunks inside the paint, both from guard's penetration and the offensive glass, because he can catch and bounce into the dunk so quickly. He can make a jump hook over either shoulder, is a terrific passer from the low post, and has a quick spin move when facing up.
