Can turn over either shoulder and finish with either hand
Footwork in the post
Soft touch around the basket
Putting the ball on the deck for a dribble or two to get to the basket
Runs the floor well
Needs to get stronger
Physicality; gets pushed around inside
Gets caught watching the action rather than sticking his nose in the mix
Can he guard NBA power forwards on the perimeter?
Summary: Benson has a nice combination of size, length and athleticism that makes him effective at the college level, but is not very physical. His numbers are a bit bloated playing in a weak Summit League but he has held his own against some of the better teams in the country. He could potentially be a borderline first-round pick but more than likely ends up being taken in the second round.
Player Comparison: Dan Gadzuric. Gadzuric brings athleticism to the frontcourt but gets pushed around inside due to a lack of strength. Benson is in the same mold as he will struggle guarding bigger players in the league. Both players have a decent mid-range game but Benson will have to play the four at the next level if he wants to be more successful than Gadzuric.
