Biography: Skeen was a key player during Virginia Commonwealth's surprising run to the Final Four his senior season. However, it may be just as big of a surprise if Skeen is selected in the draft. The Wake Forest transfer led the Rams in scoring and rebounding during the regular season with averages of 15.7 points and 7.3 boards. Skeen scored 17.5 points and shot 55.0 percent from 3-point range in six NCAA tournament games, saving his best performances for the biggest stage. He netted 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the regional final against top-seeded Kansas, then scored 26 in the national semifinal against Butler. If Skeen is to be drafted, it will likely be by a team simply watching tape from those two games. He averaged 13.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in the other four tournament games, showing brief flashes of an inside-outside game. Skeen's ability to shoot from the outside given his size may be an asset which lands him in the draft, and that may be enough to solidify a position as a role player off the bench. Once a highly touted recruit, Skeen tore his meniscus during his senior year in high school before recovering to make the ACC All-Freshman team at Wake Forest. After a dip in production his sophomore season, he was kicked off the team for violating the school's academic policy and transfered to VCU before his junior season. Skeen's off-court troubles seemed to have passed, so no NBA team will be taking a risk in that sense. It'll be his spotty play which may be the main risk.
