Bryce Hopkins is a strong, athletic swingman that can shoot and score the basketball. After barely playing for Kentucky as a freshman, he then transferred to Providence and is having a very good sophomore season. He will need to be a more focused defender in games, but his ability to create and make shots could enable him to be a solid pick for a team in the second round range of the 2024 draft.
3/1/23 Providence vs. Xavier
