Joey Hauser is a tough, physical forward that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He can knock down jumpers, score in the post, and he also can score on off-ball motion plays. He is a sound offensive player that has a high basketball IQ.
He had a tremendous showing in his team’s March 18th win over Davidson in the 1st Round of the 2022 NCAA Tournament. He may only be an average athlete, but his ability to knock down shots and make sound plays on the court could enable him to make his way to the NBA someday.
