There are always programs who are looking for a big man at the next level, and Owen Mixon is one player that should be on their radar.
At 6-foot-7 and a half to 6-foot-8, Mixon has the range out to the free throw line, and rebounds well.
I spoke with Mixon after a 16 point performance last week, about his season as well as what improvements he’s looking to make.
“It’s going well,” Mixon said. “I’m averaging 16 or 17 points a game. I’m trying to get my rebounds and assists up, but I’m always looking to improve.”
As for the future, he’s trying to show that he’s working hard as well as becoming more efficient on the boards as well showing a good motor.
“I’m 6-foot-8 right now, supposed to be 6-foot-10,” Mixon said. “Today was a bit of struggle, I’m learning a lot from games like today. I want to show that I try my hardest every game.”
As for location, Mixon said he’d prefer to stay in Florida, but he just wants to find a place that he can go and be an effective player.
“I’d like stay in Florida,” Mixon said. “Anywhere is fine for me, but I just want to play. I love basketball, and I just want to find a place that I can play at the next level.”
