Ky Bowman and Jerome Robinson had been well overlooked in the ACC but with Robinson being selected in the 2018 NBA Draft Lottery this may open up opportunity for Bowman. The former UNC football commit plays the game with the same tough-minded approach. Ky scores the ball well from all three levels, 46% 2PT, 36% 3PT, 32% Runners/Floaters & 54% Around the rim, Synergy. Ky is a good athlete who uses his natural tools to be effective on the basketball court. He has one of the best first steps in the country and the ability to break defenders down off the dribble. He finishes well going downhill with the ability to finish with both hands or at the rim. He rebounds the ball well for his size, which triggers the fast break. He's dynamic with the ball in his hands, a blur in the open court, changes direction and speed well-keeping defenders off balance. Even playing alongside Jerome Robinson he was able to be an effective playmaker and standout in big games. Ky does a lot of things well on the offensive end, even with the load he has to carry in order for the team to be competitive.
One of the downfalls of his game is the inability to be an effective point guard. He more than double his assist numbers from freshman to sophomore year but still has a way to go as a facilitator. Some may consider him an undersized shooting guard because of his scoring mentality. Although he's a strong athlete he doesn't overwhelm on the defensive end. Gathers steals because of his competitive nature and motor.
