Welcome back draft fanatics. We missed you. We are starting to get to the early start of the Collegiate basketball season in which a number of Draft prospects will start to gain some serious traction. Hopefully, for the players sake, it's for good reason. A perfect example of this is a player we're going to talk about in this FILM ROOM segment right now. Senior guard Myles Powell wasn't getting a lot of "love" in NBA circles last year and was looking like a potential second round draft selection. Powell decided to return to Seton Hall for his senior year, and college basketball fans across the nation salivated knowing that one of the most lethal scorers in college was coming back for one last go at it.
Don't believe me? Here's a look at Powell's collegiate career so far. You'll notice an increase in production in a number of categories. The shot attempts per game is obviously high for Powell, as he's asked to be "the guy" for this Seton Hall team in the last two years.
- Powell will have his fair share of knocks as a potential prospect at the next level. There's been various reports of his height, as he was measured at 5'11" last year during the G-League Elite Camp in May. To go off of that exact point, it's also been stated that Powell has a ridiculous 6'7" wingspan.

NBA RANGE PART I
- If you haven't watched Powell play in the last couple of years, here's your official introduction. Myles is one of the most exciting players in College Basketball today. He's a threat the moment he crosses half court and possesses elite range from deep. Here's a good example of Powell just showing Michigan State what type of night he's ready to have.
OFF THE BOUNCE
- Like we talked about before, there's been various reports when it comes to Powell's height. He's listed at 6'2" but reportedly measured at the G-League Elite Camp at 5'11". Here's a good clip showing the type of mentality Powell has every time he takes the floor. Powell plays with passion that NBA teams will covet and he will have plenty of fans in Front Offices. Great job here of getting downhill after a receiving a down screen and going right into the body of the Michigan State big.
- Great clip here of seeing Powell able to create in transition and getting downhill in a hurry. Notice the quick hesitation around the three-point line and then Powell sticks it into another gear before throwing up a tough floater across his body.
THE TAKEOVER PART I
- First, let's take a look at the score here. Most likely the biggest game of the year for Seton Hall, going up against one of the best teams in the nation. Powell is known for being a ridiculous shotmaker and this is a perfect example of that. Powell gets an off ball screen and it's a catch and shoot three immediately.
THE TAKEOVER PART II
- Okay big fella let's see you take over in crunch time. Massive play here by Powell for Seton Hall. Great job of Powell by creating just enough separation from the defender to get a shot off.
VS ST.LOUIS 11.17.19
- Another good look at Powell creating off of the bounce. Once he reads the defender and sees an opening boom...he's gone with a quick crossover. Powell gets downhill with bad intentions (in a good way). He plays with a chip on his shoulder at all times.
NBA RANGE PART II
- Just another quick clip to let you know just how ridiculous Powell can get from outside. Splash
