Tyus Battle is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can score and defend when he is out on the floor. He can make a variety of shots to help his team on offense, and he is also an active defender. He’s played a vital role for his team, as he has been instrumental in Syracuse’s success this season.
However, he can be too streaky in games, and he will need to show teams that he can play effective man-to-man defense at the next level. He’s struggled to make shots efficiently recently, but Battle is a versatile player that could end up being a second round pick in 2019.
