A thickly built shooting guard forced to run the point with his school's unbalanced roster, Myles Davis (Unranked Scout, Rivals, ESPN) is a gritty player who plays hard on both ends of the floor. From an athletic standpoint, Davis quickness and explosiveness are both underwhelming, though he makes up for it in part with toughness and hustle.

On the offensive end, Davis' game heavily revolves around his jump shot, which he can hit spotting up or pulling up off the dribble and already has NBA three-point range. Davis hit a variety of threes in his two games here, many of which were pulling up with a hand in his face, and he does a very good job keeping his balance in those situations.

In terms of attacking the basket, Davis wasn't able to do much in a half-court setting, not having the athleticism to consistently turn the corner or elevate over opposition in the lane, though he did a good job not forcing the issue with his own shots and instead making some solid but unspectacular drive and dishes. He doesn't show the passing instincts or have the feel to run a team's offense as a full-time point guard, but it's clear he's not a selfish player and is trying to make the transition.

Defensively, Davis has an aggressive stance with good fundamentals, and he does a good job of really pestering the opposition without losing control. He did an especially good job defensively in his second game, where he drew an impressive three charges coming both on and off the ball.

Looking forward, Davis already projects as a deadly outside shooter and tough defender at the college level, though concerns about his position and athleticism may be tough to overcome projecting to the next level.
