Opposing coach scouting report

“Sam Merrill is the kind of player you would love to have on your team. He does some of everything. He's a great scorer off the bounce with the ability to pull up and knock down shots or get to the rim and finish. If you give him space, he'll hit 3s over the top of you. Scoring is only one area in which he excels. He also makes plays for his teammates and is a great rebounder from the guard spot. A great competitor with a killer instinct, he makes everyone around him better and is a matchup problem every night.”
