Summary:

Xabier Lopez-Arostegui is a smart, skilled swingman that can contribute to his team in a variety of ways.  He plays hard on both ends of the floor, and he may project into being a 3 and D type of role player if he ends up making his way to the NBA.  However, he really struggled to make shots inside the arc this year, and he will probably end up going undrafted.
