The Seton Hall Roster

The Players to Watch for Seton Hall

Sandro Mamukelashvili 6-11 240 Forward

Sandro Mamukelashvili has a 22.5 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. There is potential for much more this season than his campaign this season. Consider that he is one of the better players in the conference and he can mean much more. Few teams have a player like him to take on that much of the workload.

Offensive Breakdown

Sandro Mamukelashvili attempted 0.356% of his shots from three point range. This season, he does not stand out as a player who attempted a lot of shots from downtown. Sandro Mamukelashvili shot 0.381% from long range this season. This season, he would be considered an average three point shooter. Sandro Mamukelashvili shot 0.5% inside the perimeter. He is not a remarkable scorer inside the perimeter. His ability to score is not necessarily anything to behold and amassing points in his case is a matter of volume rather than efficiency.

You can expect him to crash the boards on a consistent basis on the offensive end, his success is better than most. His ability to distribute the ball to his teammates is on-par with others in College Basketball. He is an average player when it comes to his ability to avoid committing turnovers.

Defensive Breakdown

Sandro Mamukelashvili 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 a leader in his conference as a defensive rebounder. His ability to block shots is generally unimportant, it is not an important part of his defensive game. A capable enough defender to be disruptive, but Sandro Mamukelashvili is inconsistent in his efforts to get steals.
