Derwyn Kitchen - Kitchen's scouting report reads much like Stitt's above. The differences are that Kitchen is bigger, with very good size for the point guard position, and more of a ball mover than a scorer. As a senior, Kitchen averaged 10.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 30.6 minutes per game, shooting a healthy 49% from the field. Unfortunately, it is also rather on his shoulders that Florida State never really ran anything. Kitchen can defend, but he's not a half court point guard.

Offensively, however, they often encounter problems. Singleton is the leading scorer, but considering his limitations on that end, this is reflective of the problem. There is little to no dribble-driving going on, nor any guard who can create his own shot. Starting point guard Derwin Kitchen does his best to be a facilitator, but it doesn't come naturally to him. Like most of the roster, he is a defensive specialist, tall and athletic for his position, a great rebounder with good hands on defense, who just doesn't have much offensive fluidity. He is efficient, a willing passer, a decent mid-range jumpshooter and a transition finisher, but he just isn't a point guard.
