Mike Daum

Position: PF From: South Dakota State Class/YOB: Senior
Height: 6’9 Weight: 235 Wingspan: 7’4

Strengths:

  • Excellent three-point shooter. Career 41 percent shooter from deep. Outside stroke is his ticket
  • Length and instincts allow him to grab rebounds in traffic. Double-double threat every night for South Dakota State and it’s a trait that will translate
  • Good feet in the post. Turns over either shoulder and can hit contested turnarounds thanks to his long arms. One of the most efficient post scorers in the class
  • Can utilize a few dribbles to attack wild closeouts. Willing passer if help comes over

Weaknesses:

  • Slow footed defender that can be attacked in pick-and-rolls
  • Despite his length, he is not a very adept shot-blocker. More of the type of post player who will stay down and try to get positioning to rebound
  • Will need to continue to work on scoring in the post against stronger defenders who he can’t back down. He does possess a polished face-up game that he should use more
  • Struggled with his weight early in his career. Must continue to work to become leaner and more explosive
