An explosive and powerful athlete with a great frame, Savon Goodman (#24 Scout, #32 Rivals, #22 ESPN) certainly passes the eye test, while appearing to have the motor and intangibles to go along with it.
A gritty played who uses his length and athleticism to make a lot of plays, Goodman is still coming along in the skills department, but makes an impact on offense by making hard cuts to the basket, getting out in transition, and attacking the offensive glass. Most of the 16 points he scored in the game here came in those ways.
Possessing a strong first step, Goodman is somewhat of a threat taking his man off the dribble, but his handle is very unpolished at the moment and he struggles when having to veer away from straight-line drives. He does show good ability to adjust in the air around the basket, however, showing nice creative and body control to take advantage of his athletic gifts when finishing.
As far as perimeter shooting goes, Goodman has somewhat awkward shooting mechanics and isn't a reliable threat with his jumper from any range, with that clearly being the thing he needs to work on most.
On the defensive end, Goodman is very aggressive both on and off the ball, using his length to make a lot of plays and showing pretty good team awareness as well. He boxes out hard on the glass and pulls in a lot of boards both in and out of his area.
Looking forward, Goodman's going to need to shore up his perimeter shooting to develop into a noteworthy long-term prospect, as right now he's strictly a severely undersized power forward, but the attributes he brings to the table from a physical and intangible standpoint are both very attractive, especially at his age. Still a junior, he has plenty of time to work on those skills, and appears to have the work ethic to do so.
