"Coaches preparing for the Zags have no answers for Olynyk. At 7 feet, he is one of the most skilled post players in the game. His footwork is second to none; he can shoot it out to the 3-point line (39 percent) and from the foul line (80 percent) and can score it inside and outside (averages 17.7 points per game). That versatility and skill level make it close to impossible to guard Olynyk (good luck finding someone who can defend him in the post and chase him out to the 3-point line), but to me, what makes Olynyk a nightmare matchup is his maturity. Instead of getting discouraged while playing behind Robert Sacre, he embraced his redshirt season and used it to develop into the most complete center in college basketball. In a basketball culture in which players want instant gratification, Olynyk is an anomaly."
