Birthdate: 8/4/1997

Pros:

Good shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent playmaker
Adequate rebounder

Cons:

Inconsistent shooter
Not an elite ball handler, can be turnover prone

Summary:

Miye Oni has drawn some draft buzz, as he is a swingman that can score in a variety of ways, pass, and rebound the basketball.  He scored 12 points, and had 9 rebounds and 5 assists in a blowout loss to Duke, but also committed 5 turnovers, fouled out, and did not make a three-point shot in that game.​

On the other hand, Oni has been Yale’s best player all season long, and he has been instrumental in helping them get to the 2019 NCAA Tournament.  Right now, Oni may be a second round prospect for the upcoming draft.
