Also posting a highlight video buttttt "With UCLA playing a majority of its games after 10 pm on some obscure cable channel, many college basketball fans haven’t had the chance to see Zach LaVine in action, and that is an absolute travesty. Averaging 14.4 points on 62.3 percent shooting, including a 55.9 percent mark from downtown, LaVine has been the model of efficiency over the first eight games of his college career, and has seen his NBA Draft stock skyrocket over the past week, placing the 6’5” guard firmly in the lottery discussion. The former four-star recruit was one of the most underrated prospects in the star-studded 2013 recruiting class. LaVine is a Russell Westbrook-type, in both his background and physical ability, however, his playing style is more similar to that of Kyrie Irving. LaVine was a major sleeper prospect as a high schooler, bursting onto the scene during his senior year, and earning a Top 50 ranking from every major recruiting service. Similar to Westbrook, a fellow UCLA point guard and a former 3-star recruit, LaVine possesses an elite handle, and ridiculous bounce, but what sets him apart is the consistency and in-the-gym range of his jumper." Also, averaging 2.1 assists and 0.9 turnovers, which equates to a 2.3 assist-to-turnover ratio. That's pretty damn good for a freshman. I wouldn't be surprised if they made a bit of a run at the end of the year, they're better than the #18 that theyre ranked
