Video: UConn’s Daniel Hamilton Draws Comparisons To Magic Johnson

At 6’7″, UConn men’s basketball sophomore Daniel Hamilton has an advantage over shorter players who have to guard him. And when head coach Kevin Ollie has him bring the ball up, he uses that height as well as his passing ability to set up his teammates.

Through two games, Hamilton leads the team with 15 assists. After last night’s 85-66 win, New Hampshire head coach Bill Herrion compared to the great Magic Johnson.

Watch and/or listen below as Herrion, Ollie as well as Hamilton and Rodney Purvis talk about Hamilton’s passing abilities.
