Player Description:'”I would describe myself as an all-around player that can score in many different ways, also defend and rebound. Basically just help my team win in any way possible. But the best part of my game is the multiple ways I can score.”

Phenom Hoops Take: Brazdeikis is a special kind of player that can play multiple positions on the floor.' Like he said, he can score in so many ways, it is tough to find a matchup against him.' He has a smooth shot from anywhere on the court and spreads the defense beyond the arc.' He also can compete on the boards with his 6’8 body.' What programs have to like is the way this young man moves with and without the ball.' There is no doubt that he is one of the top players in his class.
