UofL BASKETBALL | Donovan Mitchell... The Key for the Cards
03/08/2017 07:32 PM
UofL sophomore guard Donovan Mitchell is one of the best players in the ACC.
His statistics and accolades back up that argument.
In fact, within the last week, Mitchell was named to the All-ACC First Team, the All-ACC Defensive Team and the District IV U.S. Basketball Writers Association Men’s Team.
Mitchell leads the Cardinals in scoring with 15.9 ppg. He has scored 20 or more points in nine different games this season.
Mitchell has proven to be one of the Cards “go-to” shooters from the outside, draining 76 triples this season, tied for ninth-most in a single season at UofL.
He also leads the conference in steals, with 2.13 per game.
This week’s tournament brings Mitchell back toward his hometown in the Northeast. He is a Greenwich, Conn. native, which is located only an hour or so from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Whichever teams the Cards play in the conference tournament, expect them to focus heavily on stopping Donovan Mitchell.
