Hayes has several games under his belt and the Wolfpack really started to click with Hayes in the starting lineup as a freshman. He has a nice feel with the ball in his hands, shows he can score the basketball in a variety of ways with his ability to penetrate or in pick and roll situations, something he showed a lot of in high school.
This season, he was able to continue to show his ability to score but was nationally ranked by KenPom in Assist Rate at 19.3. Hayes also showed more of his defensive impact in conference play, ranking 22nd in the ACC in steal percentage (2.4).
Hayes is a terrific young player with a great attitude for the game. He has played in several high-level games, starting from his time at Greensboro Day to now playing meaningful minutes in 56 career games with the Wolfpack.
