Draft Notes

Bacot is a big bad man who is a force on the glass. He’s got broad shoulders and great strength and he really knows his role of rebounding, rim running and setting screens. He’s not a flashy guy but he knows how to carve out space and impact the game in the paint.

He scores mostly on dunks, layups and baby hooks but he’s starting to step out and take the mid range shot and shows some ok traits as a shooter.

He came into college with high expectations but has been a bit slow to develop on the offensive end but has really found his role as a rebounder and interior defender. One of the best rebounders in college basketball.
