Like so many of his former teammates, Postell has a good all-around game. In his senior season, he was 13th in the Big East in scoring (14.3), 11th in rebounding (6.9), eighth in field-goal percentage (.428), fifth in free-throw percentage (.809) and sixth in offensive rebounds (.285 per game). He passed for 60 assists, proving he's unselfish and can make plays. He's a solid defender. Postell didn't make a high percentage of his 3-pointers as a senior (.294), but he's accurate enough to make opponents respect him from that distance. He started attracting the attention of NBA scouts as a junior.
