 School: Iowa State
 Conference: Big 12
 Height, Weight: 6'3, 215
ANALYSIS: Stinson burst onto the scene as a freshman, leading that young Iowa State team in scoring averaging just over 16 points per game. He has since increased his average each of the last two seasons, scoring 19.4 points per contest as a junior last year, good for third in the Big 12 conference. He was able to score in double figures in 28 of Iowa State's 30 games this past season and in 84 of his 94 career games. Stinson's abilities were not limited to just scoring as he put up solid stats across the board. His 5.5 assists per game also was good for third in the conference. Standing only 6-foot-3, Stinson was a solid contributor on the boards as well, grabbing just over five rebounds per contest. Stinson recorded just the third triple-double in Cyclone history in a 96-79 victory over Colorado. Even though Stinson was able to seemingly score at will, his shot leaves a lot to be desired. Preferring to back smaller point guards into the post, Stinson's range is extremely limited. Though he improved to 33.9-percent from three as a junior, Stinson connected on barely 30 percent of his attempts throughout his three years. In order to excel as a point guard at the next level, Stinson will have to work on his decision-making, as he averaged 3.5 turnovers per game at Iowa State; including nine games with five or more turnovers this past season alone. Stinson will have to learn to get his teammates involved first at the next level as well. He has a tendency to become a shoot-first, second and third player, best evidenced by a 6-for-28 shooting display in a 10-point loss to Nebraska. With a solid set of pre-draft workouts, Stinson could work his way into the late first round with the potential of being a physical poor-man's Chauncey Billups at the next level.
