NBA projection
Hall has been projected in the second-round to undrafted category. He boosted his cause at the Portsmouth Invitational, where he earned all-tournament honors after averaging 13 points and 9.3 rebounds. But his size without shoes, 6-6, could make him a man without a position. A heart condition that bothered him in junior college but has since been controlled by medication could give teams pause as well.

2012-13 season
Despite missing seven games with a broken thumb, Hall was chosen to the All-Missouri Valley second team. But it was in the postseason that he showcased his worth to his team. He made the Valley all-tournament team after averaging 15.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.5 blocks in three games, then made the NCAA Tournament All-West Regional team, leading the Shockers to the Final Four after averaging 10.8 points and shooting 51.6 percent from the field.

Key statistics
12.5 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 1.7 bpg, 38.6 mpg, .455 FG, .318 3PT, .673 FT

Cool statistic
In his first game back after missing seven games with a broken thumb, Hall grabbed 10 rebounds.

What Insiders Say
Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall
"He's a wonderful young man, and he is the heartbeat of our team."

What Outsiders Say
Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon
"Obviously our league is known for physicality, but he throws it up and goes and gets it, that's the phrase we use. He's always looking for an angle and likes to play through contact, draw contact, offensively and defensively. Offensive glass is where he seems to get his points, his put‑backs and get to the free‑throw line."
