Summary:

Ky Bowman had a terrific showing in a December 9th game against Duke, as he nearly had a triple-double in his team’s win over them.  He scored 30 points, and posted 10 rebounds, and 9 assists on that day.  He’s a score-first guard that can make shots from anywhere on the court.​

But though he’s increased his output in most statistical categories, he actually averaged fewer assists per game, and had a worse Assist to Turnover ratio this year than when he was a sophomore.  Bowman can put up numbers, but there are concerns if he can effectively run the point consistently, and fit into a team.  Right now, he may project to be a potential second round pick in 2019.
