Named an honorable mention All-American by the Associated Press in 2011-12, Northwestern`s first since 1999, and a First Team All-Big Ten selection after leading the conference in scoring with 20.0 ppg while starting all 33 games and shooting exceptionally well from the floor overall (.463) and three-point range (.440)...A potent scorer throughout his collegiate career, averaging 16.6 ppg as a junior and 18.2 ppg as a sophomore...An effective rebounder as well, grabbing 5.0 rpg for his career and leading the team in two of the last three years...Has a terrific spot-up jumper with a natural, fluid release...A knack for being at the right place at the right time...Has good size, but below-average strength and athleticism...Not a big threat to make plays off the dribble...Works hard at the defensive end, but lacks the necessary lateral quickness to keep pace with small forwards, and isn`t strong enough to take on big men in the paint.
