Decent defensive player
Solid athlete
Has very good strength

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Lacks an elite first step to the hoop

Summary:

Xavier Sneed is a tough, physical swingman that can shoot and score the basketball.  He scored 22 points, made 5 threes, and grabbed 9 rebounds to help Kansas State get a stunning upset win over Kentucky in the Sweet 16.

While Sneed’s shooting percentages on the season have been lower than expected, his timely shooting was pivotal in Kansas State’s win over Kentucky in the 2018 NCAA Tournament.  Sneed is an athletic, high motor player that may project into a 3 and D role at the next level, as he could definitely be a player to keep an eye on in 2020.
