ANGT 2016 RECAP III - ALBA BERLIN
Philipp Herkenhoff: Very good length and wingspan, skinny body, fast and mobile for his size. Philipp showed his versatility on the tournament, able to play back to the basket with good skills and footwork, has to continue developing his upper body strength to be more decisive. Good shooting mechanical in catch & shot actions, able to score from three point even he's not a consistent shooter yet. Also is very active in offensive rebounds adding second chance points. Has room of improvement in ball handling playing face to the basket. On defense his size allows him to be a good 1x1 low post defender and his wingspan helps him to be a very good shot blocker, suffers in low post against heavier players. Good footwork on lateral movement.
Ferdinand Zylka: the best scorer of his team and on top 3 of the tournament. Explosive footwork due his strong lower body, Ferdinand is real skilled and with great scoring ability. Very good ball handling and dribbling skills with both hands on outside 1x1, is tough in penetrations and feels comfortable finishing in contact and taking fouls, has to improve his bounce selection in penetrations avoiding turnovers. Excellent shooter in many forms, from three in catch & shot or after bounce, creating his own shot from mid range in bounce actions...real streaky, has to improve his shot selection to keep on fire more time. Proper passing skills needs to continue developing his IQ in P&R game to be more complete. On defense has good lateral movement on outside 1x1 defense, acceptable footwork in off ball to steal balls in pass lines.
Louis Olinde: Very good sized for SF, has to bulk up. Played as PF on first game and showed that his natural position in SF where he's feels comfortable in taking advantage in penetrations due his good first step and ball handling, has to improve his passing skills in penetrations to avoid turnovers. Also could improve his P&R game to be more complete. Very good offensive rebounder from outside, adding second chance points. Has to work harder on his outside shot to be more complete on his game. On defense shines blocking shots, has acceptable lateral movement, but needs to be tougher on 1x1 from outside raising his contact level. Also could improve his off ball defense and second help defense concepts to low post. Good defensive rebounder.
Bennet Hundt: High basketball IQ, left handed and short sized. Probably the best in the tournament playing P&R due his over bounce passing skills, able to assist to continuations or find third open man. Very good ball handling and dribbling skills, uses his quickness to take advantage in penetrations finishing with floaters but suffers against physical defenders. Good court vision to assist to cuts in static game. Good three point shooter, real fast in catch & shot and able to hit after bounce. On defense has very good attitude, pesky 1x1 defender with high activity feet and hands. Good footwork in P&R up defense. Leadership and mature for his age.
