2018 jumbo point guard Javonte Smart recently committed to LSU. Hit the jump for Spring EYBL highlights of Endless Motor’s #21 player for 2018 to see what the Tigers are getting.
Smart is one of the most well-rounded floor generals in the country. Off the dribble he does a phenomenal job of playing at multiple speeds and never letting his defender get comfortable. Javonte consistently keeps his head and finds teammates with accurate passes in tight spaces for easy baskets in both the half-court and transition. As a scorer, Smart has range out to 25 feet with good arch and consistent mechanics. While he’s known as a really good shooter, his finishing ability is very underrated. Javonte shows excellent body control by consistently getting into the defenders chest to negate shotblocking to convert contested layups. He also has a really good floater from 7-10 feet range that he utilizes regularly. Smart averaged 15.1 points, 4.2 assists and 3.5 rebounds on 46.4% and 40% from beyond the arch during EYBL play this Spring. See below for highlights.
