2009 U-20 European Championship Review: Guards

Sep 17, 2009, 06:45 pm
Latvia’s starting point guard Janis Strelnieks also had an excellent tournament, contributing 14 points per game. He’s quite a solid point guard, not overly athletic, who distributes the ball effectively, feeds the post and usually does a good job managing between the open court and set offenses. His passing, dribbling and ball handling skills are just okay, nothing spectacular, but he certainly knows how to make the most of his skills, also being very confident with his shot. Although he has improved his long range shooting compared to last year’s Under 20 championship (from 20% to 36%), he remains very streaky in that aspect. Not a great slasher, he is able to drive at this level to dish or finish himself. His speed and quickness are average, but he gives a nice effort on both ends of the court.

Although he may not have the physical tools to play at the highest level of basketball, he can still have a very professional nice career.
