At Point Guard University Richie Greaves Sits at the Head of the Class

Richie Greaves who suits up for Team IZOD, is a true point that has a great feel for the job of being a point guard.  He attacks the rim and will not hesitate to advance the ball on the pass or dribble to apply immediate pressure to the defense. He will also give the post a good feed showing a high level in the lost art of post feeding.

Richie consistently plays in attack mode on the offensive end of the floor. He can finish on the break, get to the rim and knock down open or contested threes. Greaves plays with great offensive confidence. Recent highlight footage shows an advance skill set in various areas, notice his ability to use the various cuts, his ability to run off and space off screens and ultimately knock down finish and/or set up his teammates.  He has an uncanny knack for making the players around him better and running the team effectively and efficiently while shooting a high percentage.

He can also slide to the off-guard position where he has shown that can hit the jumper from the mid- range and from behind the arc - we love his use of the rhythm dribbles.  He excels as a floor general displaying a solid handle, passing with both hands, as well as high level penetration and finishing ability.  As a lead guard in the class of 2020 he is already displaying a high IQ level and see's the floor like a cagey veteran. 

After a solid season we can clearly access that Richie’s game not only translates to the next level; but that he is currently operating as one of top pure PGs in the country.  He has proven his status on the highest level against the best competition his respect hasn’t been given its been earned.
