Last night Temple suffered its first home loss to top ranked Villanova, but sophomore guard, Quinton Rose, continues to improve his stock. Temple started the game slow, but Quinton didn’t seem to be phased by the big moment. The confidence he possesses supports his efforts and ability to ignite the team. Midway through the first half he made three straight threes (5/6 overall) which started a run. He is a gem on the offensive end, but defensively he has the potential to influence the game even further.
Displayed good footwork and the ability to get open, especially against a tough defender in Mikal Bridges
Shot the ball well off the bounce and the showed the ability to create his own shots -Used the step back multiple times at the foul line -Utilized the bounce to create separation
Moved well off the ball, utilized screens to get open
Needs to improve as a finisher going downhill and have a willingness to invite/draw contact
He was able to get to the line six times last night but has the ability to increase this number, which currently sits at a shade under four per game (3.6)
