Very good scorer off the dribble

Excels at scoring on the move

Improving shooter

Tremendous free throw generator

Fairly good playmaker

Above average athlete

Good size to play either backcourt position

Smart player that has a good feel for the game

Cons:

Still needs to improve his shooting

Can be reluctant to take jumpers

Can be turnover prone

Needs to improve his rebounding

Does not collect enough steals or blocks

Must get stronger

Summary:

Blaz Mesicek is a smart, skilled combo guard that will relentlessly attack the basket to garner scores in the paint.  He is a crafty scorer off the dribble, and he is also a solid facilitator.​

However, he has struggled with his outside shot, and he can be a bit turnover prone at times on offense.  Mesicek also will need to continue to improve his rebounding and position defense in games.​

Right now, Mesicek may project to be a second round, draft and stash pick for the upcoming draft.  He has been playing well this year, and his ability to score and play either backcourt position could make him an enticing pick to NBA teams.
