Sweden EURO U 16 Scouting Reports

Sweden Finished 12th at the 2016 U 16 Euro’s

 

MELWIN PANTZAR

6’2” – PG – 2000 – Class of 2019

Stats : 7.6 ppg. 12 rpg. 5.1 apg. 2.1 spg. .9 bpg

Notes : Elite athlete as a point guard. Shows explosive quickness and leaping ability. Needs to work on his ball handling. Almost exclusively uses his right hand only. Extremely quick with the ball especially on the break. He will finish in the open court with dunks. This limits his ability to create space causing him to push off with his left hand often. Not a great shooter, but no mechanical flaws. Needs to continue to work on his 3 point shot and develop a mid range jumper. Scores off of hard drives to the basket, as well as offensive rebounds. Averaged 5 apg. His court vision needs some more development. He tended to see the passing lanes a little late resulting in turnovers, but the vision is there. He also needs to continue to work on passing at the correct time on 2v1 or 3v1 breakaways. Elite rebounder for size. Finished 3rd in the tournament with 12 rpg. Very good on and off ball defender. His elite athleticism and strength allow him to guard 1-3. Has potential to be a lockdown defender.

Projection : Mid Division 1 Prospect

 

ERIK PERSSON

6’1” – SG – 2000 – Class 2019

Sweden – Helsingborg (club team)

Stats : 14.3 ppg. 2.9 rpg. 3 spg. 40% 3p.

Notes : Pure shooting guard. Average athlete, that lacks explosion and needs to get stronger. Lacks the ball handling necessary to play some point guard. He is a pure 3 point shooter and shot it at 40%. Led the team with 14 ppg. Can score in a variety of ways. Needs to work on creating space for. Likes using a step back jumper from mid range. When driving in the lane he showed the ability to make a floater over taller more athletic defenders. Excels in the catch and shoot, but needs to work on shooting off of the dribble. Gritty defender that has great court awareness. Finished 2nd in the tournament at 3 spg. Potential 3 and d type player.

Projection : Low To Mid Division 1 Prospect

 

OLIVER GEHRKE

6’5” – F – 2000 – Class of 2019

Sweden – Jamtland II (club team)

Stats : 11.6 ppg. 6.6 rpg. 1.6 apg.

Notes : Average athlete that needs to continue to work on his body and strength. High effort player on both offense and defense. Has a nice shooting stroke with range that can extend to the 3 point line. Soft touch around the basket. Needs to develop more post moves and learn to make quick decisive moves. Can handle the ball some but needs to play within himself. Potential pick and pop player. Could really excel with his shooting stroke. See’s the floor well when he has the ball in the post or driving to the basket. Needs to work on his defense. Lacks lateral quickness, as well as strength to play in the post. Solid rebounder. Gets good position on his man. Will out work players for rebounds, but will not out jump.

Projection : Low Division 1 Prospect
