As a senior, Oliver averaged a solid but unremarkable 11.9 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game, but certainly enjoyed the benefits and was a big part of Dayton's tournament run. He has spent the last couple of years adapting his versatile game to being more perimeter centric, as that is what his 6'6, 225lbs frame is catered for. He has added a catch and shoot three, which is much improved and which should translate, even though he barely jumps on it. He is still not the best ball handler, at all, especially with the right hand, but he can straight line drive it and cut to the rim off the ball. And while his perimeter defense is a bit unproven given the amount of time he spent defending the paint, he ought be fast enough to keep up there. If the versatile and high IQ Oliver can become more of a full time perimeter player, then his strong post-up offensive game becomes a big mismatch weapon.
