This Sophmore is a three-point machine. His FG% on the year is 48.6 which is just 2.0% less than his gaudy 46.6 from deep. Over the last four-games Cattoor is 13-27 from deep. He has also not scored less than 12 points since the loss to Syracuse almost three weeks ago.
Averaging 21 min a game Cattoor has six-games with no fouls and five-games with just one foul.
He and Radford are both great scorers, with the ability to stay on the floor and keep the other team out of free-throw land. The potential is there for Cattoor to take the next jump in other Guard type categories.
four-games Cattoor has more than one steal, and in six games he has more than one assist. In two of Virginia Techs’ losses, Cattoor had less than 16 min. When he has been on the floor for more than 21 min Virginia Tech is 9-2. The two losses were against Pitt and Syracuse where he was a combined 5-15 from the field.
As for the NBA Cattoor is another player who could use one more year of learning, but if he can keep that range from deep solid he’s a perfect guard at the next level. High-level IQ, great from deep, doesn’t foul, great on the free-throw line, and is 6`3 at 200 lbs. For reference to those of you who think that doesn’t sound like much;
Stephen Curry is 6’3” and 185 lbs, and they have a similar skill set though Stephen Curry is at a vastly higher level.
Of the three players, Cattoor has the highest chance to play in the NBA due to his skill set, but Aluma has a better chance to play at a higher level longer.
