Olivier Nkamhoua is an agile, skilled combo forward that is having a good senior season for Tennessee this year. He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he also can guard multiple positions. He had a terrific, 21-point performance on a perfect, 10 of 10 field goal shooting in his team’s January 7th blowout win over South Carolina, and he could project to be a 3 and D type of role player in the NBA.
