SUMMARY

​​North Carolina freshman point guard Cole Anthony is heavily considered a top 5 pick in this years draft. Anthony is an aggressive and attacking scoring point guard that can get hot and score points in bunches.

One of biggest questions surrounding Anthony coming into this season was his ability to make plays for others. So far this season he's been able  to show he has can breakdown defenses and  has the vision to make dump offs, but still has a ways to go as far as balancing scoring and getting teammates involved. Anthony's assists to turnover ratio must improve.
