Evaluating Lasan Kromah to UConn

The latest move on the transfer market is George Washington's Lasan Kromah heading to Connecticut. The 6-6 Kromah plays guard, but his size gives UConn a bit of versatility, considering they're fairly loaded in the back court already.

Kromah got off to a great start at George Washington and made the A10 All Rookie team. That year he was 9th in the nation at forcing steals – generating one every 4.7% of opponent possessions.

Heading into his sophomore year things began to go sideways when he suffered a lisfranc injury in a preseason scrimmage with NC State and missed the entire season.

After he returned he was never quite the same.

His 3pt% dropped to 31.2% as a sophomore, and to 22% last year. His turnover rate went up, and his steals went down.

The dangerous part was that he was also a high volume player, taking 24-28% of the shots when he was on the floor. That was fine as a freshman, when he was efficient, but it wasn't fine after his return.

The key for UConn will be getting Kromah to buy into his role. He doesn't need to be jacking threes. He doesn't need to be the primary option. He'll need to provide some help off the bench, play solid defense, and score when the defense breaks down and leaves him open.
