After having'multiple extremely impressive weekends in a row, it's impossible to overlook everything Armani Henderson is doing. He's been so impressive as a tough, heady, quick-twitch lefty guard with feel, instincts, and undeniable ability in the open floor. Henderson is an absolute blur in transition. He gets downhill and attacks the basket basically whenever'he wants. Although he's a capable finisher with either hand, opponents truly struggle to stop him from getting to his left'especially with a full head of steam. That being said, Henderson is arguably just as lethal in the midrange, where his pull-up was a common'avenue for buckets in every single contest. He does a quality job of taking what the defense gives him, but also isn't afraid of taking what he wants in the proper situations. Though he regularly scored at will, Henderson displayed a strong willingness to disrupt opponents definitely and set up others whenever possible.'He utilizes his length and anticipation very well to harass opposing ball-handlers and force turnovers. Henderson definitely showcased the makings of an obvious next-level player, so it should be exciting to watch him blossom over the coming months.

What To Expect:

Going forward, various types of college coaches should be closely monitoring Henderson. He's a heady, dynamic guard prospect with the ability to run a team or apply constant scoring pressure. Henderson is virtually unstoppable from getting to the elbows and converting pull-ups or slicing to the basket and finishing, especially when going left. He's quick enough to break down opponents off the bounce or out-speed others in transition. Henderson possesses a crafty handle and understands how to take what the defense gives him. He displays sharp vision, quality athleticism, and nice instincts on both ends of the floor. Henderson regularly forces turnovers at the point of attack, but can also sit down and reliably contain opposing guards. It's shocking that he doesn't already have more action within his recruitment, but that feels almost certain to change over the coming months.
