Poor game for Meeks today against Tennessee.
14pts (4-14, 0-7, 6-6), 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals.
I only saw the 1st half, but he really struggled to get open and rather than breaking his defender down by using his dribble (does he have handles? I haven't seen much evidence of that) he ended up being pushed further and further out. He took a lot of shots under pressure in hopes of getting something going, but he was stone cold.
Seems to try and force his offense rather than letting it come to him? Also, he's pretty much strictly a catch and shoot sort of guy so if his catch and shoot isn't falling, he's a little restricted.
Also, he gambles on D a lot. He picks off a couple of passes for steals and back away points, but he also gets burnt quite often.
8/3/3/0 in Kentucky's second round loss to LSU
He's staying in the Draft. If we had to go with a PF with our 1st round pick, I'd love to try and grab Meeks with #40.
Dont think he'll make it to #54 Slam. He's listed at #43 on Ford's Big Board, so maybe, but I think he'll be gone.
Depends on if you want an overall athlete who will flat out score and provide a spark, or a guy who will rely mostly on spot up shooting on kickouts
