TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Bennedict Mathurin played a supporting role at Arizona as a freshman, showing off his athleticism only in flashes.
Mathurin is a key cog for the ninth-ranked Wildcats this season, displaying skills that have pushed him toward the top of NBA draft boards.
The 6-foot-6 guard is a good outside shooter, can beat defenders off the dribble and plays above the rim. Mathurin leads Arizona with 18.9 points per game, grabs 6.5 rebounds and is shooting 51% from the floor during his sophomore season.
