Trey Wertz (Notre Dame)
The 6’5 Charlotte Native Trey Wertz has had an up-and-down college career. The statistics won’t tell the full story of what Wertz brings to the table.
In his senior year at Notre Dame, Wertz averaged 8.4 points per game, shooting 36.6% from the field and 32.4% from three-point land (stats via ESPN). These numbers were relatively low compared to his earlier years and didn’t properly reflect his strengths and abilities as a basketball player.
Wertz is a solid point guard. His ability to pass while attacking downhill is one of the most appealing parts of his game. Whether he is on the fast break or simply throwing an entry pass, Wertz will put the ball in the right spot. Additionally, his ability to change gears and get past his defender is one of his biggest strengths.
The NBA is full of talented guards. Guys ranging from 6’3 to 6’7 with elite passing and scoring skills are scattered all throughout the league.
In order to stand out in a league dominated by guards, Wertz needs to focus on improving his jump shot and developing a consistent, unique aspect of his game.
