Point Guards

Power & Stretch Forwards

Small Forwards

The average size of a NBA starting shooting guard on a Playoffs caliber team is 6'5", 205 lbs.

Here is a list of the 15 shooting guards in the 2019 NCAA Men's basketball tournament that we are most intrigued by...

Anthony Lamb - Vermont. 6'6", 225 lbs junior. ...Lamb is the 2018-19 America East Player of the Year. He led the conference in scoring (21.4) and rebounding (7.8). Primarily known as a low post beast, Lamb has expanded his game this season. He is not only hitting the three-ball (37% 3-pt.) but he also has more assists than turnovers for the first time in three seasons. Lamb is a good defender, with Vermont being 4.7 points per 100 possessions better defensively with Lamb in the game. He is especially adept at defensive rebounding. Lamb also gets to the free throw line often. Continuing to improve his ball handling ability and decision making will likely make or break his chance to play in the NBA.

Jarrett Culver - Texas Tech. 6'5" 190 lbs. sophomore.  ...Culver is a prospect with a high ceiling. He is just scratching the surface of what he may be capable of. The sophomore averages 18.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game. His defensive rating (DEFRTG) is better than the Texas Tech team DEFRTG. He has a positive assist-to-turnover ratio and he knocks down the three-point shot at 35% (career). Hopefully his shot making will continue to improve. His freshman free throw percentage was 64%. He improved that to 70% this season. We believe Culver can be a top-ten TWO-guard in the NBA if he reaches his potential.

Dejon Jarreau - Houston. 6'5" 185 lbs. junior. ...Jarreau sat out from basketball in 2017-18 after a transfer from U-Mass to Houston. He is an athletic, versatile wing that averages 8.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game. He hits 38% of his three point attempts and he has a healthy 1.68-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio. Houston is 2 points per 100 possessions better on defense with Jarreau on the floor.

Other TWO-guards we like...

Coby White - North Carolina. 6'5" 185 lbs. freshman. ... White is mostly viewed as a point guard but his 1.49-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio suggests he is more a natural TWO. Regardless of his backcourt designation, White is a fantastic young, offensive guard. White is averaging 16.3 points, and 4.2 assists per game. He is shooting 36% from deep, and 81% FT. ...His attention to detail on defense will need to improve but his overall game is already NBA worthy.

Markus Howard - Marquette. 5'11" 175 lbs. junior.

Miye Oni - Yale. 6'8" 198 lbs. junior.

L.J. Figueroa - St. John's. 6'6" 195 lbs. freshman.


Myles Powell - Seton Hall. 6'2" 205 lbs. junior.


Terence Davis - Ole Miss. 6'4" 190 lbs. Senior.


Devin Vassell - Florida St. 6'6" 180 lbs. freshman.

Quinndary Weatherspoon - Mississippi St. 6'4" 190 lbs. Senior.


Admiral Schofield - Tennessee. 6'5" 240 lbs. Senior.

Marial Shayok - Iowa St. 6'6" 198 lbs. Senior.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker - Virginia Tech. 6'5" 210 lbs. sophomore.

Tyler Herro - Kentucky. 6'5" 193 lbs. freshman.
