MJ Collins

As the second half of the season has gone along, Collins has become one of the better Virginia Tech players at both ends of the floor. His defense has always been good, but he has been stepping up offensively and knocking down some shots, mainly from behind the 3-point line.ย 

His on-ball defense has been good and he has even been hitting the boards. He gives Mike Young another option to run the point for Sean Pedulla as he does a nice job of seeing the floor. He is quick enough to beat his defender off the dribble and get to the basket. As the season has gone along, he is gaining more confidence and shooting the ball well to become another option for Virginia Tech.
