Precious Achiuwa

Position: PF                  From: Memphis                         Class/YOB: Freshman

Height: 6’9                        Weight: 225                        Wingspan:

Strengths:

  • Agile and powerful athlete. Runs the floor like a gazelle and has the strength to shed defenders on box outs and block attempts
  • Aggressive interior presence. Plays with an edge as a rebounder and defender. Pulled in three offensive boards a night with effort
  • Active and energized defender. Willing to switch out onto guards if necessary. Recovers quickly if he gets beat on an initial move
  • Handles the ball freely in transition. He brought the ball up at times for Memphis. Feels at home taking bigs off the bounce and finishing with force
  • Versatile scorer that can beat you from multiple areas. Scores in the post with power moves. Faces up from 15 to 18 feet and blows by bigs. He can be a ball-handler or screener in the P&R game. If defenders back off, he has range out to the three-point line

Weaknesses:

  • Capable of handling the ball, but he can try to do too much off the dribble
  • Still working on becoming a more consistent outside shooter. He doesn’t take a ton of threes right now and he has a slow release
  • His post-game revolves around his strength and leaping ability. Has decent moves. Could improve his footwork and depth of moves down low
  • To maximize his playstyle, he could benefit from becoming a more accurate passer off of the dribble
