Summary:
Bennedict Mathurin is a very athletic, energetic swingman that can shoot and score the basketball.  He has significantly improved this season, and he has played very well this year. He had a strong 2022 NCAA Tournament this year, and he was tremendous in his team’s second round overtime win over TCU. On the other hand, he will need to improve his decision making skills and ability to play in a half-court offense. Mathurin projects to be a lottery pick in the 2022 draft.
