Player Profile: Asante' Gist (West Orange, NJ)

Name: Asante’ Gist

Hometown: West Orange, NJ

Position: Point Guard

Class: 2016

Size: 5’9

Event: John Lucas Middle School Combine

Analysis: Physically Gist was too much for many of the point guard defenders he faced. Once he got them on his hip he usually dropped them off in the lane before finishing at the cup. He also used this created space to drop passes to his big men or drive and kick to guards on his squad. Asante’ was even more dangerous when his outside shot was falling including his strong pull up. He showed good balance and rhythm well running the show. He was the best point guard I saw in Houston.
