Shonn Miller at the Greater Hartford Pro-Am
That means defense is largely optional, no lead is safe, and the intensity of a regular-season, Division 1 college basketball game is nowhere to be found.
That said, we had a look at Shonn Miller at the Greater Hartford Pro-Am on Sunday afternoon, and he certainly looked pretty good.
Miller had a nice lefty drive to the basket. He had an even sweeter one later on as he swooped through the lane for a lefty reverse layup, kissing the ball off the glass at a tough angle for the chance for a three-point play. That was perhaps his best basket of the night -- until he rammed home a long alley-oop pass for a two-handed dunk late in the game.
He had this transition hoop:
Miller also blocked a few shots and grabbed a few rebounds. He's long and athletic. He wasn't overly engaged on defense (or offense), often floating around. He also (justly) seemed quite miffed at the refereeing. But, like we said: it's the pro-am.
Shonn Miller certainly looks like a good one. Can't imagine he won't be in that 8 ppg, 7 rpg area this season for the Huskies.
