* Good 3-point shooter with NBA range
* Explosive athleticism
* Good rebounder
* Good defender
* Has to get bigger and stronger
Ross has been projected as a mid first-round pick. He’s got pro size, athleticism and range on his jump shot. He’ll be a tough cover in the NBA, especially if he can add some weight and strength.
Ross was a first-team All-Pac-12 pick after leading Washington in scoring and ranking among league leaders in eight statistics: scoring (16.4, fourth), rebounding (6.4, sixth), offensive rebounds (5.1, third), free throw percentage (.766, 11th), steals (1.3, 12th), 3-PT FG makes (2.1, eighth), 3-point percentage (.371, 14th) and blocked shots (0.9, 13th).
16.4 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 1.4 apg, 2.0 tpg, 1.3 spg, 0.9 bpg, 31.1 mpg, .457 FG, .371 3PT, .774 FT
Ross was at his best in the postseason, averaging 25.0 points in four NIT games. He shot .405 from the 3-point line (.405) and was perfect (15 of 15) from the free-throw line.
Reminds me of:
What Insiders Say:
Washington coach Lorenzo Romar
"When Terrence gets it rolling you almost have to send two guys at him to get the ball out of his hands. He can continue to back up because is range is so deep, and if you come up too far, then he can finish over the top of you or post you up. You have to keep him from getting going, because once he does you have to find some way to take the ball out of his hands."
Washington assistant coach Jim Shaw
"Really good players have an identity and they're known for something," Shaw told the Seattle Times. "For Terrence, when he's making shots that is his identity. Not that he's not a good player and he does other things, but that's still his identity."
What Outsiders Say:
Arizona coach Sean Miller
"The combination of Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten is really a 1-2 punch that you have to be ready to deal with. Tonight they were terrific. They almost had 50 points between two players."
