Consider that he is one of the better players in the conference and he can mean much more. His participation rate is average on the floor, he is not expected to carry the load in any way.

Offensive Breakdown

Dru Kuxhausen this season has 0.833% of his shots attempted from 3 point range It makes very little sense to give him space on the perimeter, opponents should be getting in his face. He made 0.55% of his three point shots fired this season. He is a sharpshooter from long range and his ability to shoot three point shots must be respected. He made 0.5% of his two point shots attempted this season. He is not a remarkable scorer inside the perimeter. He is among the most efficient in his ability to score. As a shooter regardless of where he is, he makes something damaging happen for opponents.

This season, when shots were missed, Dru Kuxhausen is certainly not there to help his team get a second chance opportunity.He is not known for his ability to distribute the ball to his teammates. He is among the best in the country at not turning the ball over.

Defensive Breakdown

Dru Kuxhausen has shown that he may be an elite defensive player going into this season and the expectation is that it should not change. He is an average defensive rebounder who is serviceable in his role. He is not a shot blocker. He is also not very adept at being defensively disruptive and forcing live ball turnovers.

A.J. Lawson 6-5 215 Guard

A.J. Lawson sports a 9.8 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. This season, he is a bit of a non-factor on the floor. The hope is that this season he can improve and show what he can do. His participation rate is average on the floor, he is not expected to carry the load in any way.

You can expect him to crash the boards on a consistent basis on the offensive end, his success is better than most. He is a stronger distributor than most that is for sure, but he is not among the elite. He is an average player when it comes to his ability to avoid committing turnovers.

Defensive Breakdown

A.J. Lawson has shown that he may be an elite defensive player going into this season and the expectation is that it should not change.
