Demonstrating that no program can at any point have such a large number of adaptable wing players, the Texas Tech ball is in the quest for a 6-foot-7 Syracuse move Quincy Guerrier despite previously adding two players of comparative size from the exchange entryway this offseason. As indicated by school b-ball insider Jon Rothstein, the Red Raiders are one of the various groups to have connected with the 2021 third-group All-ACC entertainer.
Rothstein tweeted Wednesday that Tech, Illinois, Kentucky, Oregon, Marquette, Georgetown, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Memphis, Arizona State, Maryland, Creighton, Arkansas, SMU, and Western Kentucky have all been in contact with the sophomore.
This previous season, the Canadian found the middle value of 13.7 focuses and 8.4 bounce back per game. That included eight twofold duplicates from the 220-pounder.
It was a critical advance forward in his second season as a university for Guerrier. As a green bean, he found the middle value of a decent 6.9 focuses and 5.3 sheets per game however this year, he saw his minutes played leap 12.6 per game as he turned into a starter for 28 games.
Likewise, his external shot was hugely improved this season. In 2019-20, Guerrier shot only 12.5% from profound and endeavored just 0.8 3-pointers per game. Be that as it may, this season,
he saw his exactness from past the curve ascend to 31.1% and that was with him taking 2.8 3s for each challenge.
Like such countless parts in the NCAA move entrance, Guerrier is likewise trying the NBA waters without recruiting a specialist. In any case, most anticipate that he should stay at a university as he doesn’t presently show up on many (assuming any) of the many false drafts that are being distributed.
No doubt Guerrier may be a fall-back arrangement for Tech should Terrence Shannon choose to remain in the NBA Draft as many accept he will. This previous season, as a sophomore, the Chicago local scored 12.9 focuses and pulled down 4.0 bounce back per game for the Red Raiders.
However, Tech has effectively amplified the list at the wing position. Imprint Adams has added 6-foot-6 swingmen Adonis Arms from Winthrop and Davion Warren from Hampton, every one of whom scored in twofold digits last season.
In any case, Guerrier would be a welcome expansion, particularly if Shannon withdraws. That is because flexible, All-Conference entertainers from an alliance however renowned as the ACC seem to be never going to be peered downward on. So watch out for Gurrier’s enlistment because the Red Raiders appear to have a real interest in getting his administrations.
