ANALYSIS: Offensive versatility is the strength of Maraker's game. He can score inside with his soft touch and hook shots from either hand. He can also shoot out to NBA three-point range, but he is especially effective from 15 feet and in on his jumper. The reigning Big West Conference player of the year ended his collegiate career with a first-round loss to Boston College in the 2006 NCAA Tournament, but he had an impressive performance scoring 30 points, grabbing nine rebounds and hitting a three-pointer to force overtime. Maraker made a solid impression on scouts at the pre-draft Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, where he was named to the All-Portsmouth Third Team. He averaged 12 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. Maraker's team won the eight-team Portsmouth Tournament. Although he still needs to get stronger, he has gained a solid 15 pounds the last couple years. His added strength helped him have his best season last year, as he averaged 17.6 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. Maraker has international playing experience, playing for the Swedish National Team and is adjusting more and more to the more physical play here in the states. He shot over 50 percent from the floor in each of his last two college seasons and recorded an impressive 16 double-doubles his senior season. Because of his multi-faceted offensive game, Maraker has a chance to sneak into the second round if he impresses in private workouts. The biggest problem he would have in the NBA would be on defense, where his strength and quickness could be a liability. But he still seems to have upside, as he has become more aggressive offensively each season in college.
