Elite 80 Expo Profile: Will Joyce

Name: Will Joyce

Position: Forward

HT: 6’3

Hometown: Newark, NJ

AAU Team: PPY Pirates Elite

Strengths: Joyce is long wiry and at times can dominate a game on the glass and scoring in the lane. He runs the floor decent and uses his length to cause problems on both ends of the floor. His wingspan helps him get extra rebounds and allows him to score easier on put backs. It also helps him block shots regularly.

Areas of Improvement: Joyce needs to add some pounds because he will probably project as a power forward thus he needs to beef up for the bruising. In the same breath he will be a tough guard for some at that position because he does have quickness and isn’t afraid to step out and face the basket. Extra strength will also give him more control of his body and hopefully add to his conditioning.
