One of three top Arizona recruits playing in the 2005 USA Youth Development Festival, we decided to breakdown Lance Thomas performance through two games.
Since Thomas is quite possibly Arizona's top recruit of the 2006 class, we'll be doing another feature like this at the end of his tournament.
Lance Thomas Box Scores:
After a strong game against New Zealand, Thomas struggled a little bit against a tough Russia team. It should be noted, however, that Thomas plays on a team without a true point guard and isn't getting a lot of touches.
We love Lance Thomas' hustle and hard work on the court. The 6-foot-8 forward will never be outworked by a competitor on and off the court.
He may have struggled against Russia, but we expect him to come back strong in the final two games of the tournament.
The obvious improvement of Thomas' perimeter game makes his stock even higher.
