During the Blue White scrimmage, Nerlens Noel looked a little raw on the offensive end. He didn’t seem to have a real good handle on the ball, nor did he seem to have any fluidity in his game. According to Eric Lindsey of CoachCal.com , Noel has come along way in a short time frame. He reports that Nerlens is looking much better on that side of the court.
Speaking of Noel’s offensive game, boy has it come a long ways. Maybe it was just a really good day or maybe he’s making that big of strides, but I couldn’t even tell who Noel was offensively compared to the guy we saw last week at the Blue-White Scrimmage. Yes, he still has a long way to go, but he’s not at the other end of the tunnel like he was when he walked on campus. He has really developed a great technique to seal off his defender and get the ball on the block. He still isn’t dominant with his back to the basket, but he’s added a couple of good, quick moves once he gets it in the post. What’s most impressive is he’s developed a pretty reliable jump hook off that great bounce he has. Noel had 10 points during the scrimmages.
