Mike Bothwell is an agile, skilled point guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  He scored 24 points in his team’s overtime loss to Chattanooga in the Southern Conference Championship game on March 7th last season.  He’ll need to show that he can consistently play well against upper-echelon opponents, but his ability to score and make plays could allow him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA someday.
