 Louis Amundson  
 Position: Power Forward
 School: UNLV
 Conference: Mountain West
 Height, Weight: 6'9, 225
ANALYSIS: The biggest strength of Amundson's game is his rebounding ability. As a senior, he averaged 8.6 rebounds per game, bettering his 7.5 average as a junior. He had a monster game against Hawaii in November last season, pulling down 21 rebounds to go along with 25 points. Despite his slender frame, he is a wiry player that can handle contact, and he had 10 games with 10 or more rebounds. Amundson utilizes his sneaky quickness and solid rebounding fundamentals to be successful on the glass. He is a high energy player with long arms and good leaping ability. As a senior, he averaged a career-high 14.8 points per game, with most of his buckets coming close to the basket. Amundson needs to work on his mid-range jumper because he is not a threat past 12 feet. He shot 53 percent from the floor his senior season and 56 percent from the floor as a junior. He does have a few moves inside, consisting mostly of a jump hook and some spin moves. Because he is not big enough to play power forward in the professional ranks, he must improve his ball handling. Defensively, he has enough foot speed and desire to be an effective defender. His free-throw shooting is really weak, as evidenced by the 58 percent he shot his senior year and the horrid 29 percent he shot his junior year. Overall, Amundson's lack of size and underdeveloped offensive game hinder his ability to succeed at the next level and make him a late second round pick at best.
