Prospect Profile

Bill Clark

  • Full Name: Bill Clark
  • Position: Forward / Guard
  • Height/Weight: 6-5 / 210
  • Birthdate: April 15, 1988
  • College: Duquesne

Strengths:

  * Potential game-breaking shooter
  * Can put the ball on the floor
  * Willing and capable passer
  * Good rebounder for his position

Weaknesses:

  * Needs to consistently elevate at the rim
  * Has to get consistent with one hard dribble and rising above defender for jumper
 

NBA projection:
If a team is looking for a deep shooter with decent size, Clark could fit the bill. He's learned how to pass, which in turn has made him a more difficult cover, and he can put the ball on the floor, so he's not one-dimensional offensively.

2010-11 Season:
Earned second-team All-Atlantic 10 honors after leading Duquesne in scoring. Finished seventh on the school's all-time scoring list with 1,628 points. Reached double figures in 28-of-32 games and scored 20 or more points 10 times.

Key statistics:
16/3 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.5 apg, 2.0 tpg, 1.5 spg, 31.0 mpg, .463 FG, .379 3PT, .747 FT

Cool statistic:
Made five 3-pointers in a game five times, and all five were on the road (Robert Morris, Bowling Green, Pitt in the Consol Energy Center, Penn State, Dayton).

Reminds me of:
Ray Allen -- similar size and ability to score in bunches from the perimeter

What Insiders Say:
Duquesne coach Ron Everhart
"Probably his biggest attribute in terms of the NBA guys would be the fact that, in their terms, he's a dependable deep shooter. I also think they feel very strongly about the fact he's unselfish kid who's willing to make the extra pass."

What Outsiders Say:
NBA director of scouting Ryan Blake
"I watched him make five [3-pointers] in a row [in a Portsmouth Invitational game], and the first four didn't even touch the rim. He's a big-time shooter."

Chris Dortch is the editor of the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook.
