Duke Daily 8/03 Who's Who With Duke Ed. 2

Last year Jon Scheyer was Duke's top shooter and one of the leading scorers.  So who is he this year?

Jon Scheyer is a natural shooting guard who is very lanky, but has a decent ball handling skills and is able to run the point.  His shooting is remarkable, and he can stretch the defense as well.  One thing that he has developed into a threat to compliment his shooting is his ability to draw fouls on the perimeter, he has had many four point plays.  He is Duke's top free throw shooter, shooting 90% from the line.  Much like Nolan Smith, Scheyer has under rated defense, and may just show that all this year.

So who is Jon Scheyer?  Scheyer will be Duke's leading scorer, and clutch shooter.  The senior will raise plenty of eyebrows from NBA scouts.

My outlook: Scheyer will average 21 point per game, 7 rebounds, and four assists.  I also feel he will average two and a half steals per game.  And I am sure that as I speak Coach K is dreaming that he gets these stats.

"Scheyer will average 21 point per game, 7 rebounds, and four assists.  I also feel he will average two and a half steals per game"

I am a huge duke fan but no way Scheyer will avergae these number...hell average around 16-17 points a game, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and prolly 1 steal a game....if he was able to average 21,7,4, and 2.5 steals, then he would easily be an all-american...i think he will have a solid year but you are definitly over-estimating him.

"The senior will raise plenty of eyebrows from NBA scouts"

Im sorry but I highly doubt that Scheyer will get drafted and if he does, he will be very lucky...I dont think many NBA scouts want a skinny, soft white man to draft like Scheyer is.

Seriously, i really hope that Jon puts up these numbers, i'd be really pleased to be wrong but, 7 rebounds a game?? 2 and a half steals? It's going to be hard for him to have these numbers, but i totally agree with you that Jon will carry the load in scoring for his senior year. And i'd like to ask you if you think that Scheyer will still run the point with Nolan at the 2 spot cause that's where he played his best basketball last season. I found that, being guarded by Point guards, it's easier for him to get his shots off, rather then being played by bigger at more athletic shooting guards.
