Manny Obaseki is a very athletic combo guard that excels at scoring the basketball. He is an aggressive scorer that will drive hard to the hoop, and he can score in a variety of ways. He also can stuff the stat sheet, but he also can tend to be turnover prone and prone to lapses defensively.
He didn’t play as much as anticipated. While he had some good games, he ultimately had a disappointing freshman season, and he will really need to work on his jump shot moving forward. If he can put his skills altogether and reach his full potential, he could end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
