Typical offenses run through their point guards. However, when a big man can create a mismatch on the block or pass out of a double team, there are often scoring opportunities for the rest of his teammates. Here are some top returning big man passers .
This 6’7” senior managed to create scores for his teammates at a 2.4 per game clip. If his teammates make their shots, his floor awareness should improve this number in his senior campaign.
The 6’4” Hathaway uses his size to get position in the pivot, where he is adept at passing to cutters and open shooters. He dishes out 1.9 assists per game.
Yanor is a good passer from the post and his outlet passes often lead to easy buckets on the break. His rebounding and assists work hand in hand as he feeds his teammates to the tune of 1.7 assists per game.
Yearsley is longer than big, but his floor vision makes him a point forward, a la Scottie Pippen. He drops 1.4 dimes per game without being a primary ball handler.
Flake uses his scoring as a threat to attract defensive attention where he kicks the ball to open scorers. He creates 1.3 buckets per game for his teammates.
