He needs to work on his shooting.
He needs to expand his shooting range.

Player Profile Summary:
Anthony Black is a quick, skilled point forward who can run the offense and make hustle plays on both ends of the court. He’ll need to work on his shooting and scoring, but he’s a tall playmaker who could and should be a lottery pick in 2023, even with Arkansas being disappointing like they to this point of the season.
