Summary:

Oscar Tshiebwe is a tough, bruising big man that can score and rebound in the paint. He had recently participated in the 2019 McDonald’s All-American game, and he is a productive player that notched 20 points and 17 rebounds in a win over Pittsburgh, and he also scored 19 points and grabbed 18 rebounds in his team’s win over Wichita State.  However, he doesn’t have great foot speed, nor block many shots, and he can tend to struggle against longer, more athletic players. Right now, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2020 draft.
