Ben Uzoh
Position: PG
Class: Senior
School: Tulsa
Conference: Conference USA
HT: 6'3"
WT: 205
Biography: Uzoh isn't the flashiest of prospects, but is a consistent scorer and good athlete who turned in a solid four years at a lower-profile college program. A four-year starter at Tulsa, he averaged at least 14.0 points during each of the last three seasons. In 2009-10, he averaged 15.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and a career-high 4.7 assists, leading the Golden Hurricane to the NIT. Uzoh needs work on his ballhanding, as he committed 2.4 turnovers a game in college, and also must improve his shot selection. However, he shot 45.7 percent from the field as a senior and 45.4 in his career. Uzoh has a strong build and long wingspan that should serve him well in the NBA. He played well at the Portsmouth Invitational against some of the top seniors in the country, averaging 14.3 points, 3.0 assists and 2.0 steals while shooting 62.0 percent, leading his team to a third-place finish. His free-throw shooting fell off his final season, as he averaged 76.5 percent from the line, but still hit 78.2 of his foul shots in college. Uzoh plays solid defense and has a good work ethic. His lack of height is a drawback, but his versatility is intriguing and he shows the desire to improve his game. He could be a good value pick in the second round.
