Uses ball fakes to create space to get off his shot
Able finisher when he does get to the rim
Too often falls in love with his jumper
Needs to be more aggressive in attacking the basket
Ball-handling could use improvement in iso situations
Tends to show his frustration when his shot is not falling and carries it over to the defensive end
Not a great perimeter defender
Summary: Buford has been forced to play out of position a bit this season as he starts at point guard for the Buckeyes. He is at his best when he can play his more natural off-guard position when Aaron Craft comes off the bench to run the show. He has a world of talent but has deterred to Jared Sullinger this season which hurts his draft value. Still, he would likely be a first round if he chose to forgo his final year of eligibility.
Player Comparison: Anthony Morrow. Morrow just has a great all-around feel for scoring the basketball and Buford possesses that talent as well. Both guys are athletic enough to get to the basket but rely more on their outside jumper as their best weapon.
