Biography: Foot injuries sidelined Koshwal for 12 games last season, but they didn't affect his production when he was actually on the court, with Koshwal finishing as one of only three players in the Big East to average a double-double. In fact, the Chicago product improved his play nearly across the board, averaging career highs in points (16.1), rebounds (10.1), assists (2.0), steals (1.8) and blocked shots (0.9) while shooting 54.4 percent from the field - also a personal best. There's reason to believe Koshwal will continue to get better, as he'll likely be in a better situation next year than he was at DePaul, which went 1-35 in Big East play over the last two seasons. Koshwal is already dangerous in the high post thanks to a quick first step and improving court vision. But he's not a great shooter, as evidenced by his 55.0 free-throw percentage last season, and this limits his offensive effectiveness. Teams are more intrigued by what Koshwal can do on the other end of the floor. He's a very good rebounder, and his long wingspan could continue to pose problems for opponents in the paint at the next level. While an NBA future isn't guaranteed for Koshwal, there's a good chance he lands on a team either by getting drafted late in the second round or via free agency. He's an athletic big man with great length, exactly the type of player NBA teams like to have at the end of their bench and on the court for practice against players in the regular rotation.
