Quinton Hosley had a decent game, hitting on two spot-up shots from 18 feet out, a fade-away jumper from 15 feet, and scoring on a lay-up and a jam in transition. On the downside, he airballed another 18 footer, missed on a lay-up off a cut to the basket, and missed on a right-handed lay-up off a right-handed drive. His dribbling looked pretty sloppy whenever he put the ball on the floor, and thats been a noted weakness of his based on our scouting. He got to the free throw line a few times by putting the ball on the floor, but he usually looked like he was on the verge of losing the ball on these possessions, not having a compact dribble, which is vulnerable to pokeaways by the defense.
On the defensive end, Hosley started the game off by playing some aggressive off-ball defense, cutting off the passing lanes and pushing his man out of his comfort zone, though he eased up a bit as the game went on. He wasnt scared on switches where he was matched with smaller, quicker guards like Brandon Heath, though he did have some trouble getting around screens, which the opposition threw more of at him later in the game.
Hosley has a chance to get drafted in the second round this year, as he has some nice upside and an NBA body, but he will need to work on improving his ball-handling to play the wing consistently in the NBA, and his outside shot could use some work, as he only shot 32% from behind the arc on the season, even though hes shot the ball pretty well here.
