    Thon Maker: The well-traveled and chronicled Maker was solid, by his lofty standards, in his performances. He didn't force too many shots, but, rather picked his spots. Maker showed his range, yet scored at all three levels. Over the past two years, Thon has tried to transition from a primarily low-post player to a stretch four to now a hybrid-forward who prefers to face-up from the wing. In his two games in Providence, Maker didn't fall into the trap of over-dribbling. While playing in the low post and in transition are still his most effective means of scoring, Maker has the range to force bigger defenders out to guard him. He's still most effective at taking players off of the dribble with his right hand. Defensively, Thon is most effective as a shot-blocker, both on the ball and as a weak-side defender. He still needs to add more upper-body strength, improve his perimeter skill set, and try to develop better hands. None of the colleges who showed earlier interest were in attendance for his games.
