At the HoopExchange Spring Showcase, 2022 prospect Manok Lual of Wolfson (FL) did just about everything and more to stand out.
At 6-8, Lual was able to showcase his versatility at the forward spot and even stretch the floor on the offense.
His game impressed a lot of national scouts at the event but he thought he could do even better.
“I went 1 of 4 on threes. I should’ve knocked down more three’s knowing that I’m a better shooter than that,” he said. “I also had some turnovers from trying to look fancy but overall I think I did good. I was able to showcase my vision, athleticism and handles as a 6-8 player.”
Lual did his thing in the open floor at the Spring Showcase and that’s one of the many things most highlighted. He has great vision for his size and the smarts to make the right play in transition.
It’s something he has worked on for sometime and made a strength as we head into the summer evaluation periods.
“My strengths on the floor are shooting and being able to make a good pass to an open man on both the fast break and half court,” he explained.
Lual, still few years removed from enrolling in college, has some work to do. He’s steady adding to his game to help him reach his goal of playing at the highest level of basketball.
He’s continuously improving his shot making and passing ability, but there are some other things that he’s working on to be a better version of himself.
“Right now, I’m focused on putting on more weight and getting stronger, faster, and more athletic,” Lual explained. “On the court, I’m working a lot on getting lower to the ground while dribbling, having more post moves and getting my shot better and better.”
