90. Milik Yarbrough | Illinois State | Senior | Forward
It's been an eventful off-season for Yarbrough, who was arrested in September after an injury-related accident. But the 6-6 senior is practicing with the Redbirds and is expected to have another big season. He averaged 16.6 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.8 assists last season. -- GP

scouting report on him is that he can pass and shoot well but isn't the best at driving.

I'd strongly disagree with that. I think driving toward the basket and drawing a foul, laying up, or passing out is one of his strong suits. As is his drive forward stop and pop game. Were I talking to my guys about defending him, I'd tell them to force him to dribble east and west where he is a turnover liability, or make him shoot a 3, where he only shot 29%.

Interesting review.....

Malik draws a lot of fouls in traffic while driving, but also gets some blocked and turns it over more than he should. Maybe the driving comment is he is unable to finish on a regular basis. Bigger guys in the pro ranks will reject more of his shots and he will draw less fouls. I somewhat understand the comment.

To me his worst attribute is his long range shooting. He was very inconsistent last year. There is an opportunity for a huge improvement here. His best attribute is his FT shooting. He is money from the line.

I think the joke was about his traffic issues.
Also...MIlik

yes, I was joking in reference to his latest traffic record.

I think Milik will play better than a top 90 player. Also interesting to note that Nevada has 3 top 100 players on that list.
