Articles about Ryan Boatright

June 16, 2015

Just for once, I'd like to see humble tattooed words. "Adequate son-in-law." "Does enough to keep the boss of his back."

Ryan Boatright, Connecticut, Senior, 6'0 170lbs

2014/15 stats: 35.8 mpg, 17.4 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 3.8 apg, 1.4 spg, 0.2 bpg, 1.9 fpg, 2.4 TOpg, 42.3% FG, 41.1% 3PT, 85.0% FT

Boatright is dynamic, but not with any great control. He is fast, with a very tight handle, aggressive and fearless, and relentlessly attacking the rim. But he struggles to finish when he's there, and he takes some poor shots along the way. Boatright is quite a good shooter, especially good with a step-back, but he overfancies himself and can stop the ball at times. And while he can play close, tight, pressing defense, he can also overhelp and gamble recklessly.

Shooting a very good pull-up shot, Boatright is a half court scoring option on every trip and a dynamo in transition, but his unreliability and excessive shot taking negates some of that. Boatright's blazing speed and great leap make him one of the better athletes on this or any list, but his tiny frame and short arms make him one of the smallest players on this or any list. Boatright can get to the rim without a screen going right, but struggles to get there even with one when asked to go left. Boatright can pass on the move, drive and kick, and drive and dump off, but he rarely finds a role man and is often driving to shoot. He has great agility and body control, but is really, really small. Some of that stuff can be fixed. Some can't.
