Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball -- 7th Edition
Evans was a very good player for UK. Kidd-Gilchrist is taller, but they have the same strengths (driving to the hole relentlessly, finishing on the break) and the same weaknesses (shooting from 20 feet).
Defensively, Evans is the lesser player, obviously. Kidd-Gilchrist is also the better rebounder.
But offensively, I could see Kidd-Gilchrist as a 10-12 pt./gm. player in about the same number of minutes taking just about the same type of shots.
