Mintz has a nice stroke and if we get normal progression from freshman to sophomore year, i think he will be very good.
Agreed. There's a lot to like about Mintz's game...good athleticism and size and nice looking shot to keep teams honest.
Mintz has been fine thus far...some freshman mistakes, but it looks to me like he's steadily growing into the role. Put an off-season and another preseason practice set behind him along with Mac tweaking the offense to fit his (not Mo's) skill set and I believe he'll be a darn fine point guard.
More importantly, there is plenty of talent and experience around him that he doesn't have to be Mo, just has to be efficient getting into sets and pushing the pace.
