About Tre Mann
• Tre Mann is a smooth, skilled, late-blooming guard who grew two-inches and made major strides as a shot creator ahead of his sophomore season at Florida. Widely regarded as one of the top-25 prospects in the high school class of 2020 following his senior year at the Villages Charter High School (FL), Mann played in the Jordan Brand Classic and McDonald’s All-American game before heading to play for Head Coach Mike White in Gainesville. Averaging 5.3 points and 1.9 rebounds per game as a freshman, Mann took some time to adjust to the college game. Turning a corner as a sophomore, the 20-year-old guard averaged 16 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game on dramatically improved shooting numbers to earn All-SEC 1st Team honors and help guide the Gators to an NCAA Tournament appearance.
• Standing 6’5 with an improving 190-pound frame and average length, Mann has terrific size for a point guard following his late growth spurt. A fluid athlete who can play above the rim some in space, he is more skilled than he is explosive.
• Finding himself as a player in a season when the Gators really needed him to step up, Mann emerged as Florida’s leading scorer as a sophomore. Creating extensively out of ball screens and one-on-one situations, Mann’s bounce-back season shooting the ball opened up the rest of his game. Finding his range from beyond the arc made his fluidity with the ball more apparent as he was dramatically more effective creating separation and getting to spots to create for others than he was as a freshman.
• Possessing good size and feet defensively, Mann was a factor in the passing lanes in spots as a sophomore but has room to be more physical on the ball and consistent making rotations.
• Serving as the top perimeter scorer and primary ball handler for a Florida team that had some ups and downs in SEC play, Mann established himself as a dangerous pick and roll threat and a capable passer.
• Smooth and skilled on the perimeter, Mann did much of his scoring with his pull-up with over half of his possessions coming out of ball screens or in one-on-one situations. Averaging 1.02 points per pull-jump shot in the half court [90th percentile], he showed improved range and touch rising into his jumper off a variety of dribble moves. A very fluid ball handler, Mann did not blow-by many defenders, but his ability to freeze them with in-and-out dribbles, step back beyond the arc, and make shots with range stood out last season.
• Using the threat of his jumper to probe the lane, Mann is not a particularly explosive slasher. He scored 1.10 points per shot around the rim in the half court [45th percentile], but has soft touch on his floater, the ability to make the simple play finding the open man on the move, and some natural room to improve handling pressure and making reads.
• Making huge strides from last season, Mann still has some room to get stronger with the ball and find more consistency as a set shooter
• Flashing the ability to contain the ball and allowing 0.63 points per one-on-one possession [73rd percentile], Mann has good feet defensively, but is not especially physical on the ball. Still getting stronger and learning how to play with urgency consistently, he did a better job being in the right spots off the ball as a sophomore than he did as a freshman.
