J.T.-Miller

Midseason Grades: The Offense Part 2

Kevin Hayes: (40 GP; 5G, 10A, 15 PTS) Surprising rookie has stepped right in and hasn’t looked out of place. Probably better suited long term on the wing rather than center. Inevitable “rookie wall” is likely coming due to longer, more condensed schedule in the pro game as compared to the NCAA. Grade: B Carl Hagelin: […]
