Coach Frank says: 'Cortez is a pass first point guard, a court savvy facilitator.' He is extremely patient allowing plays to unfold, doesn't make predetermined decisions.' Is undeterred by ball pressure and controls tempo.' He has a tremendous basketball IQ and understanding of court geometry.' Cortez has very good court vision and is able to find the open man and snap off a quick high velocity pass anywhere on the floor and deliver good passes to his shooters or to cutters which allows them to be more efficient.' He can make all the passes and is an excellent passer making good, quick reads and doesn't turn the ball over. 'He understands spacing, the need to control tempo and all of the nuances of the position. 'Although he is a pass first point guard, Cortez is an efficient scorer.' He utilizes the change of pace dribble well and can get into the paint consistently, is a tricky finisher around the rim and is able to play through contact.' He is a dual threat as he attacks the rim staying on balance and able to remain a scoring and passing threat.' A lefty with a smooth stroke he hits the shot off the dribble at a good percentage.' Cortez is a solid floor leader, composed and confident and is a high character young man highly regarded by coaches and teammates. 'Defensively he is fundamentally solid, has active hands and feet both on and off the ball.' He maintains good defensive posture and contains the dribble.' Cortez is a very good rebounder for a point guard, much of that due to his high IQ and ability to stay engaged and be in position to make plays but he is also strong and quick off his feet.' Cortez is the kind of floor general a coach loves to have; he is very unselfish and prides himself in his ability to manage a game.' He delivers accurate passes and knows the tendencies of his personnel. 'He has all the leadership intangibles and his maturity, knowledge of the game and sound skills make him a solid floor general who makes teammates better and puts his team in a position to win games.
